Omakase in Singapore: Where to go, what to know

New Japanese omakase menus in Singapore to check out.

Few dining experiences rival sitting right in front of a chef for a Japanese omakase menu. It’s an exercise in trust but also gastronomy – leaving your food in the hands of chef that will decide a multi-course extravaganza showcasing the best produce of the season. Here are some of our picks for this season.

  • Waku Ghin - Extended Bar

    Waku Ghin

    The reopening of prime gastronomic destination Waku Ghin has surely pleased many returning foodies, but the restaurant is primed to win over a new legion of fans thanks to its spanking new space. The chef's table is an exceptional indulgence – featuring Western-inflected kaiseki that has slightly more assertive flavours compared to fully Japanese experience. Think: marinated carpaccios, somen prepared like pasta, and full plated desserts with petit fours. The restaurant's signature is an extravagant combination of marinated botan ebi, lobes of uni, and caviar – all eaten out of an uni shell with a mother-of-pearl spoon. Chef-owner Tetsuya Wakuda is also happy to accommodate any request (for a price of course) – including customised birthday cakes or even an additional steak for your omakase. No time for a full dinner? The bar area at Waku Ghin features a la carte dishes – like fresh oysters and fish and chips – prepared with the same care and ingredients as their omakase. Try the Basque cheese cake, an exemplary version made with just cheese and eggs.
