Premium Omakase comprises:
2 appetizers
1 vegetable
9 sushi + oyster
1 handroll
Mini uni Rice bowl
Soup of the day
Dessert

The restaurant started out with 20 courses for the premium Omakase but they have now cut down to 16 course (maintained at the same price). Menu has not been updated on chope or the restaurant website. Felt a little misinformed upon finding out when I arrived. They used to include 3 sashimi and 10 sushi instead of 9 now. Proceeded with dinner nevertheless. Overall, was not too impressed.

The appetizers were onsen egg and seasoned scallops, followed by spinach for the vegetable. Didn’t feel like these items can be classified as premium. Some hits and misses for the sushis too. For this price point I must say I’ve had better and this experience was just disappointing to say the least.

The restaurant is cosy and can only accommodate about 20 max. Perhaps better to come for lunch where you can get decent Chirashi dons!

The 9 sushi:
1. Flounder edge
2. Squid
3. Flounder
4. Yellow tail
5. Scallop
6. Hiroshima oyster with yuzu jelly and ponzu sauce
7. Shima aji
8. Aka ebi
9. Golden eye snapper
10. Tuna with yuzu zest (Akami)

Handroll - unagi

The uni Rice bowl is pretty good with uni blended into the rice then topped with fresh uni.

Soup of the day: Miso soup (not pictured)

Desert: scoop of sesame ice cream in a cone

The noodles were springy and chewy! Tossed in soya sauce with shredded egg, pork belly slices, tomato, seaweed & leek. Very refreshing dish to beat the heat! No wonder this cold soba is more commonly found on summer menu in Okinawa!

Creamy soft tofu, to be savored with soy sauce & grated ginger.

Very refreshing, Iove the sourish broth the seaweed is soaked in. Perfect as a palate cleanser!

One of the dishes we ate everyday when we were in Okinawa - Goya Champuru 😅 this is a stir fry dish with bitter melon, tofu, egg, and pork belly. Quite an iconic Okinawan dish, this staple is typically savored with steamed rice and miso soup by the Okinawans.

Very tender pork rib with soft bones that literally disintegrates in your mouth. Slightly under seasoned but the meat is still good!

Ordered with no expectations but this turned out to be our favorite! Very flavorful and I really like the texture of the stir fried somen. In mainland Japan, people eat somen noodles with a dipping sauce but in Okinawa, it’s more common to make fried noodles or put them in a soup.

This classic Okinawan noodle soup comes with chewy noodles soaked in pork and sadhu broth and comes with tender stewed pork belly, slices of fish cake, chopped green onion, and red pickled ginger. I found this to be rather authentic compared to the ones I’ve had in Okinawa. My only complain would be the slightly overcooked noodles.

Flame seared sushi rice bowl with diced salmon, grilled eel, scallop, prawn, salmon roe, fish roe, avocado & tamago. Really enjoyed the myriad of flavors with the mix of freshly diced seafood. Not usual to find eel in a Chirashi but it really works! Especially from the sweetness it introduces. The best part for me was the delicate mildly flavored vinegared rice which had a really pleasing texture. Good even on its own!

Set includes choice of 1 side dish. I chose the grilled salmon belly which was really juicy and yummy! Other options include: mini steak, mixed tempura, pork belly stew. So much value in this set really!!!

The thickly sliced wagyu beef was grilled to perfection, very well charred with a tinge of smokiness. Mix in the onsen egg to coat fluffy rice along with the signature glaze on the beef. Very legit and flavorful! No need for the truffle or mentaiko sauce really 😋
