had another awesome A5 ohmi wagyu omakase lunch at hachi on 8.11.2017. ^^
first dish was hotate isobe age, a nori (seaweed) flavoured fritter of scallop on a bed of pumpkin puree.
scallop was good, sweet…the nori flavoured fritter also very nice.
the oyster with ponzu jelly was another really delectable dish…so nice lor!
oyster very fresh, plump & sweet, & the ponzu jelly combined perfectly. 🙂
the ohmi wagyu 近江和牛nimono (steamed dish) was so flavourful & melt-in-the-mouth.
i think maybe i will try making this dish myself, getting a cheaper wagyu cut & sous vide or low temperature braise.
the sashimi moriawase had only akami, kampachi, hirame. all the sashimi were very good, very sweet.
but the quality of ingredients prompted me to look at past omakase lunches i had here.
likewise, then we had uni isobe age..today we had hotate isobe age…quite different la..
the grilled A5 ohmi wagyu steak was the best dish for this omakase..so flavourful, marbled, melt-in-your-mouth. ^^
it was served with some some charcoal salt, sweet potato, a white grated wasabi, momotaro tomatoes from hokkaido, crackers and a wedge of tiny dried fishes. awesome!
the 3 ohmi wagyu sushi were yopped with a ponzu minced daikon, uni & caviar, and a white foie gras dust. 🙂
i liked all 3, not surprisingly the caviar & uni one best. the white foie gras dust did not seem to add anything to the delicious wagyu sushi….
the “gohan” item for the set was soba with sakura ebi. nice too.
tasty dish & sakura ebi flavour & texture was a great accompaniment.
they did not have the kuromame which they supposed to serve so replaced by a vanilla ice cream with pistachio chips & chestnut mash in the middle. nice dessert too.
the omakase lunch is now S$95pax (S$88pax before). it is 8-course c/w with the omakase dinner, now at S$178 pax and S$218pax (S$138pax & S$188pax before). it is not cheap but with 3 servings of A5 ohmi wagyu i guess that is still for me the best jap omakase in town for the price.
if c/w the previous same omakase say on 2.2.2017. the ingredients were distinctly inferior, but overall the omakase lunch still very good. just hope there is no continuous shifting of prices north & ingredients south!
