Whenever a special occasion arises, I love treating myself to Japanese omakase. There’s something so captivating (and delicious) about the craft that keeps me going back for more.
If you are ready to kickstart the year-end festivities with a memorable feast, head on down to Sushi Kyuu by Shunsui in Orchard for an indulgent omakase experience that won’t break the bank.
Opened in May 2022, Sushi Kyuu by Shunsui, the sister restaurant of Michelin-recognised Kappo Shunsui, specialises in reasonably priced omakase courses featuring “the freshest and high-quality ingredients sourced directly from Toyosu, Japan”.
If you’ve yet to venture into the wondrous world of Japanese omakase, now’s the time.
As part of the restaurant’s “Grand Opening Promotion“, you can enjoy the 20 Course Sushi Omakase (U.P. S$129) at just S$99++ for a limited time only.
The menu, which comes with the full works, showcases the full culinary expertise of Chef Kuni Shimuta, the executive chef from Kappo Shunsui.
Highlights include the signature Siphone Dashi Soup, which features freshly shaved katsuoboshi infused in a siphon, as well as the Smoked Salmon with Japanese Onion, a delicate appetiser top with refreshing tosazu jelly.
And of course, no multi-course omakase meal is complete without a selection of fish-topped nigiri like Akaebi, Shimesaba, Kinmedai, and the glorious melt-in-mouth O-toro (AKA the fatty tuna nigiri I always look forward to).
Personally, I’d go crazy for the Overflow Ikura Rice with Uni, a heaping load of ikura layered with luscious uni served on rice. Do you know how hard it is to find omakase with uni courses priced below S$100 nowadays?
As with all omakase menus, courses vary according to the day, so you can rest assured knowing that you’ll enjoy nothing but the freshest seasonal produce.
Do note that there are only two seatings available for the S$99 promotion — 5.30pm and 6pm (the restaurant will open from 5.30pm only for guests using the promotion).
Although no end date has been specified, we all know it won’t stick around for long, so make your reservations here now!
