Sushi Ten Omakase: New omakase selection with creative lobster courses
July 28, 2022
Lobster lovers, satisfy your crustacean cravings at Empire City's Sushi Ten Omakase, which has launched a new omakase feast that showcases a whole lobster prepared in various creative styles, from head to tail.
Available via advance reservations, the Takumi Omakase features appetisers, a seasonal dish, chef's special, sashimi, steamed dish, seven rounds of premium nigiri sushi, main course, soup and dessert for RM898, served by an experienced team in an elegant sushi bar.
The Takumi Omakase kicks off with the splendour of Japan's seafood, including soy-dressed tsubugai white whelk and firefly squid with miso yuzu sauce.
We love the intricate nuances of the Hokkaido oyster with ponzu jelly, delicately pickled daikon, chilli, spring onions and ginger - a lively medley of bright, briny flavours.
The first lobster course features lobster leg flesh, layered with uni and caviar in a wonderful wasabi dressing - it's a rare, irresistible treat, with the lobster meat tasting fresh and luscious.
Lobster carries us confidently to the finish line - a main course of salt-grilled lobster yakimono, brimming with lots of plump, pleasurable lobster flesh, enhanced with yellow mustard. There's even lobster in the soup, ensuring that every edible part of the lobster is used.
A trifecta of coveted musk melon, gorgeously ripe and juicy, plus daifuku mocha and matcha cheesecake, take this terrific meal to its fitting end - one of our favourite omakase experiences this year.
The Kayo Omakase meal comprises the comprehensive sushi courses - the highlight is the special Blue Prawn, distinctive with an iridescent deep blue tail. It's slick and superbly supple, an engaging variation of prawn with intriguing subtleties of raw flavour.
The Koyo Omakase also remains enjoyable to the end, thanks to the hamaguri clam that is interestingly grilled, so that it's only partly cooked - the result is a large clam with contrasting textures and a compelling intensity of saltwater mollusc flavour.
