When we talk about craving Japanese food as a legit thing we suffer- we are not lying. Our taste buds are always tingling for a taste from the land of the rising sun but who says you have to leave the comfort of our island to get it? Scattered around Singapore are numerous spots for Japanese food such as an Omakase. Thus, Glitz is talking about one of our favourite Omakase in Singapore which is none other than Mizume Japanese Dining.
Omakase refers to a beautifully produced supper chosen by a top sushi chef, which translates to “respectfully leaving another to determine what is best” in Japanese. Omakase is a fantastic eating experience for a variety of reasons. Customers may sit at the sushi bar and engage directly with the sushi chef, unlike at less personal restaurants.
Observing the executive chef and his or her years of preparation is a wonderful experience in and of itself. A spectacular culinary performance is made possible by smooth knife skills, rice shape, and precision blow torch technique. The chefs’ personal experiences and recommendations contribute to the intimacy of the eating experience.
Here are some more great Omakase spots around Singapore.

What To Get At Mizume Japanese Dining Concept
Wagyu beef rice with onsen egg
This Japanese rice bowl is the epitome of comfort food, and the silky onsen egg oozes into everything. The steak was well-complemented by the sauce, which had a hint of sweetness to it. The mild brown surface of each medium-rare beef slice contrasted nicely with the luscious delicacy inside. Be warned: it’s really addictive.
