We came to Akashi for a weekend dinner, and instead of struggling to decide what dishes to order, after discussion with one of the senior staff, we decided to let the chef decide on a on-the-spot omakase with a budget we pre-agreed on.
Each of us had individual servings of what you will see further down, except for the big fish and fried rice that was shared between the 3 of us.
For starters we had edamame and a salad with some crispy fish.
Nice plumb slices of sashimi for sashimi #1. Look at that pretty presentation!
This was a very interesting presentation of sashimi #2. Makes it very artistic.
California rolls. I liked the bits of roes bursting in my mouth.
Grilled eel with Japanese style omelette (Unagi with Tamagoyaki) Sushi
Yakotori stick with poached egg
Grilled fish and squid
Finishing with fried rice (by this time, we were super full).
We ended up with many tasty dishes and a fun experience for less than $100 per head. This was by no means a budget friendly meal, however we got many more dishes as compared to some of the other omakase options in town area. Akashi also serves value set lunches on weekdays (much more affordable). It is a popular place so reservations are recommended.
