Exquisite Dining Experiences With Freshest Ingredients

sushi-oribe-kuala-lumpur

You’ve probably heard of the term “Omakase” being bandied around when it comes to appreciating the finer art of Japanese dining. Omakase which means  “I’ll leave it up to you” or “to entrust” refers to a crafted menu prepared by the chef based on the season’s specialties for a superior dining experience. Usually offered in Japanese restaurants where fresh seafood and seasonal vegetables are available, the experience is certainly one worth spending on. However, do note that this gastronomic experience is best left to the adventurous. If you have dietary restrictions or allergies, perhaps you might want to sit this one out. For sushi lovers, Little Steps brings you the best Omakase options right here in Kuala Lumpur!
