10 Best Omakase in Singapore
Source: Live Japan

Omakase, also known as ‘I’ll leave it up to you‘, is a popular Japanese dining concept where the customer leaves it up to the chef to select and serve seasonal specialities.

Likened to an artistic performance, the chef will innovatively prepare and present a series of dishes in front of the patrons, from the lightest fare to the heaviest dishes.

Not exclusive to Sashimi, the preparation process may include grilling, simmering and other cooking techniques.

Have a feel of this unique dining experience with the 10 Best Omakase in Singapore!

A famous Japanese restaurant that serves great value omakase sets, Teppei has got to be one of the hardest Omakase places to book on this list.

To be able to snag a spot here on a Thursday, Friday or Saturday, one would need to book at least a month in advance because that’s how fast the 22-seater restaurant is going to be filled up with diners if your fingers are not quick enough.

A small eatery that offers a 17-course Omakase served using the best quality ingredients at an affordable rate, dining at Teppei is definitely one you should put on your foodie bucket list.
