Ex-Koji Sushi Bar Chef Opens Affordable Omakase Restaurant, Prices from $88 Per Head
There’s also a selection of a la carte donburis, from $26.
Like “cheap” and “petrol”, omakase and the phrase “wallet-friendly” aren’t often mentioned in the same sentence these days. You can hardly brandish a $100 note at those atas Japanese restaurants and expect to be fed, since a meal there usually runs at least 200 bucks.
But at sushi-ya Unkai Sushi, $88 gets you an omakase set with an appetiser, 10 types of sushi, a handroll, and miso soup plus dessert (there are also $138 and $188 sets). The new 30-seater at Orchard Rendezvous hotel is helmed by young sushi chef Eugene Lam, 30, who has a dozen years of experience in the kitchens of Hide Yamamoto, Sushi Mieda and Ashino.
