Finallyyyy! Omakase! We’ve booked this restaurant a few times but things always came up. ~ But we finally got to try it! I think we booked and cancelled at least two times… Which in my opinion was pretty bad… but thankfully they took our reservation this time. I was pretty scared they would blacklist us…
On their website, it says Masayoshi only takes reservations but when we arrived they didn’t ask for our confirmation number. They were about to seat us near the window, but I did give them our confirmation number after because I reserved the bar seats! (If you’re planning to try this restaurant for their Nigiri Sushi Omakase, I definitely recommend the bar seat) Their seating hours are available twice a day! 6:00PM and 8:00PM Monday to Saturday! They offer two Nigiri Sushi Omakases and one “Original Creation Omakase”, which is a 7 course meal including hot and cold dishes. The difference between the two Nigiri Sushi Omakase would be the pieces and the appetizer.
Nigiri Sushi Omakase – $80 – offers 14 pieces of Nigiri Sushi, Miso Soup, and dessert
Nigiri Sushi Omakase – $110 – offers 16 pieces, appetizer, miso soup, dessert *** number of pieces in this course is subject to change depending on ocean conditions, quality of fish and availability ***
My friend and I decided on the 14 piece Nigiri Sushi Omakase ~ We sat bar seats so we saw the difference between the 14 and 16 piece. (The only item that really stood out was the uni. The packaging looked exactly like the uni you can buy at Tsukiji Fish Market in Tokyo!!!) We did end up ordering their special of the day after our main omakase course. Which wasn’t bad…
Out of all the fresh fish I tried that night, I think their saba was the best. I know many people tend to dislike and avoid saba because of the “fishy” smell and taste. Sometimes, the strong scent can linger around for a couple hours. But, saba is one of my personal favourites ~ So, I don’t have an issue with it. Hahah~
The duration of this meal was about an hour and half. We arrived a bit late but we did finish around the same time as everyone else (4 other people at the bar seat). It actually didn’t feel like we were there for an hour and half! Probably because we did order some sake/plum wine ~ So time actually went by a lot quicker than expected. An hour and half wasn’t even a long time but it felt like we were done in like 30 min! Chef Masayoshi Baba served the Nigiri Sushi pretty quick.
