5 Best Japanese Haute Cuisine Omakase (and Kaiseki!) Course in KL

5 Best Japanese Haute Cuisine Omakase (and Kaiseki!) Course in KL

Meet the Chanel and Christian Dior of Japanese cuisine.

 

 

We have heard of Chanel, Christian Dior, Giorgio Armani in haute fashion.. but how much do you know about Japanese haute cuisine Omakase and Kaiseki course? For those who start scratching your head wondering what omakase and kaiseki are, this post is for you. For those who are familiar with these terms, read on to find out where to get these hard-to-find cuisines!

 

  

Omakase

 

 

Omakase means "I'll leave it up to you” in Japanese. It differs from ordering à la carte; you are entrusting the chef to serve you the best he could offer. Customers ordering omakase style expect the chef to be innovative and surprising in the selection of dishes, and the meal can be likened to an artistic performance by the chef. Ordering omakase can be a gamble (well, life is always a gamble!), but the customer typically receives the highest-quality fish available at a lower cost than if it had been ordered à la carte.

 

 

Kaiseki

 

 

Kaiseki, on the other hand, is equivalent to a multi-course Western haute cuisine. It is an appreciation and collection of chef’s skills and techniques that allow the preparation of such meals, even the dining ware and vessels are part of the kaiseki experience! In the present day, kaiseki is a type of art form that balances the taste, texture, appearance, and colours of food. Only fresh seasonal ingredients are used and are prepared in ways that aim to enhance their flavour. Finished dishes are carefully presented on plates that are chosen to enhance both the appearance and the seasonal theme of the meal. Dishes are beautifully arranged and garnished, often with real leaves and flowers, as well as edible garnishes designed to resemble natural plants and animals.
 


Omakase and Kaiseki style Japanese cuisine are rare to find in Malaysia, as locals are yet to appreciate the haute cuisine and also, the pricing factor. However, if you are keen to try (YOLO, perhaps?), here’re the top restaurants that offer the best Omakase and Kaiseki.

 

 

Hanare


Hanare prides themselves in offering quality authentic Japanese cuisine. They provide some of the best and freshest seafood air flown direct from Japan depending on the season's specialty offering. Favourites such as the divine Hon Maguro (Fresh Blue Fin Tuna), the rare cut of Tai (Fresh Red Snapper), Nama Awabi ( Fresh Abalone ) and other choice seafood depending on its season will be imported direct from Tokyo's famous Tsukiji fish market to give you that unique flavour and dining experience.
 


Hanare is well known for its 9-course Dinner Omakase. The restaurant offers Kaiseki set as well – 7-course Hiru Kaiseki available during lunch hour and 8-course Dinner Kaiseki available at night.
