Omakase at Umaku Sushi Resto, Duren Tiga

On a shiny Saturday during the rainy season, Food Escape and I had an amazing and impressive Omakase lunch together at the Umaku branch in Duren Tiga, Pejaten area.

I noticed that many sushi lovers are praising about Umaku Sushi Resto. It is not only about the high quality of the freshness fish for the sashimi and sushi but also the affordable price for their famous Omakase.

Frankly speaking, this was my first time Omakase experience. Thus, sitting at the Omakase counter is an educational and fun experience for me. I must admit that the fresh and high quality of the ingredients with a twist at Umaku Sushi Resto totally impressed me.

Chef Syaiful
Talking to and learning from Chef Syaiful, definitely gives a personal and intimate experience. 

The Omakase comes first with salad, followed by sashimi (4 servings), sushi (7-8 servings), yakimono (1 serving), nimono (1 soup), ginzaro (1 handroll), and dessert.

Salmon Salad with sesame dressing
Undoubtedly this salad was a good appetizer to start with.
