Tasty and fresh Japanese sets

Hakumai Sushi & Omakase Japanese Restaurant is located within the CBD area, serving up freshly prepared meals with ingredients imported from the motherland, i..e. Japan. Whether one chooses to order their Omakase (which basically means to "entrust"), Kaiseki (pre-determined dishes) or Set menus, Hakumai promises quality as well as freshness.

I settled for the Sashimi Gozen set (SGD$33.80), comprising mixed platter of sashimi and tempura moriawase as well as hot soba noodles, truffle sauce chawanmushi and salad. The sashimi slices were generous in cuts, fresh and succulent. The tempura items were good as well - crispy, with thin battering so it did not taste too "floury".

*Mira went for Ishikari Nave Gozen set (SGD$26.80) - salmon cheek and vegetables cooked with miso soup, as well as 3 thick slices of salmon sashimi, truffle sauce chawanmushi, rice and salad. Freshness and scrumptiousness were the key words to this set.

I have been meaning to come to Hakumai for their omakase. But it was a little difficult on my end to get a friend who was willing to splurge on omakase as Hakumai needs all parties (sitting) at the counter seats to be having omakase. Even if 2 friends was doing omakase with 1 friend ordering the kaiseki set which ranges from $69 to $198 from the set menu. Hmm…

And on the day of our dinner, while looking for the unit #01-50A to the restaurant, I was a little surprised shocked to see a small door when I came from Tanjong Pagar MRT station. Thankfully, that was not the main entrance. Pasted on the door was a small sign asking patrons to continue walking straight before making a right turn. Ha.

Upon seated, head chef Gary Ng asked us for our preferences. To which, my friend said “sashimi and sushi” which meant he was going for ‘Hakumai sushi omakase’ while I chose to have sashimi, sushi and some dishes from the kitchen. Meaning I went for ‘Hakumai omakase course’.

And so, from the menu (pages 123456789101112), we ordered:-

1) Hakumai omakase course, $168 comprising of:-

(A) Appetizer – Comprising of baby sea eel, corn and shirauo. My friend’s appetizer had oyster instead of baby sea eel. And that’s because I told chef Gary I don’t take beef and oyster.

(B) Assorted sashimi – And on my plate was a small bowl of flying fish marinated with truffle with a huge variety including swordfish (slightly torched), scallop (slightly torched and not shown in picture as it’s hidden beneath), mentis shrimp (cooked), surf clam, salmon (slightly torched), hairy fish roe, yellow tail, Spanish mackerel (slightly torched) and sweet shrimp. And I have to say, chef Gary was very generous with the variety and serving. The slices were pretty thick!

(C) Dish #1 from kitchen – Baby abalone which was pan-fried with butter

(D) Dish #2 from kitchen – Meat ball of Spanish mackerel, mixed with truffle. I did not like this though. While the exterior was fried nicely such that it was slightly crispy, the meat within was a little dry.

Due to the (silly) 3000 characters limit, continue to read my review on other dishes here: PART2

So the differences between my $168 omakase course and my friend’s $168 sushi omakase were my 3 dishes from the kitchen and 2 additional pieces of sushi which he had. In fact, when we were onto our sushi, we asked chef Gary how he determine the end to the sushi. And we were told there’s no limit. “You can keep eating till you’re full. But more sushi means more costly,” chef Gary joked.

So yes, Hakumai provided a very value-for-money meal. If omakase is not for one, there’s the set menu too. Although one would need to sit at the table seats if ordering from the menu. Will I recommend Hakumai? Definitely for its value. But not if one is looking for a very authentic experience in terms of ambience and sushi. Since not everyone may agree bigger is better.
