Omakase @ YASU

Had my first full fledged omakase at Yasu in celebration of my birthday this month.  Omakase means chef’s choice set course, and this is the only menu offering available at Yasu. At  $135 per guest for a 2 hour seating, the meal consists of 20+ items. The menu mostly comprises of nigiri sushi, but we also had a few appetizers throughout the meal, and a dessert at the end.

It was an outstanding meal where although there were so many pieces, we never felt rushed or too full. They also offer to reduce the size of the rice in the sushi if you start to feel full. Their only dining time slots are 7:15pm and 9:15pm – be sure to make reservations well in advance as seating is extremely limited.

Highly recommend to try Yasu as personally, it is the best sushi I have ever had (and I have been to Tsukiji, albeit not the most popular spot) . Price is on the higher side but well worth it for a special occasion! There were 3 other patrons celebrating their birthdays the same night as me 😂
