Omakase: try and trust.

Updated: Apr 11

"Omakase” is a Japanese expression that literally translates to "trust the chef" or "trust in the chef". In the context of sushi and Japanese cuisine restaurants, omakase refers to an ordering format in which the customer trusts the chef to select and prepare the food of their choice.

In restaurants that offer omakase, customers typically do not select dishes from a menu, but trust the chef to create a lunch or dinner of one or more courses. The chef selects the ingredients and prepares the meal, taking into account the seasonality and freshness of the food, as well as the customer's individual preferences.

Omakase is popular in Japanese cuisine for several reasons:

Culinary excellence: Omakase demonstrates the chef's high level of culinary skill and creativity. The chef is able to offer unique and innovative dishes that cannot be found on the regular menu.

Personalization: As each lunch or dinner omakase is prepared individually for the customer, it allows the chef to take into account the customer's preferences, allergies or dietary restrictions. This creates a personalized and unique experience for each diner.

Seasonality and freshness: The chef selects ingredients and dishes based on the season and freshness of the produce. This ensures that customers receive the most tasty and highest quality food.

Trust and experience: Omakase requires the customer's trust in the chef and his culinary expertise. Customers can enjoy the chef's experience and creativity without worrying about food choices or combinations.
