An omakase meal is quite a Japanese culinary experience. After all, omakase means “I trust you” or “I leave it to you”, so you’ll be relinquishing all control over what you’ll have to the chef. The menu usually consists of a dizzying array of courses that are reflective of the season’s best produce and the kitchen’s signature cooking style, and you can sit near the chef if you want to be part of the experience. Don’t, however, go for omakase if you’re a picky eater — you should be willing to try everything and have few dietary restrictions.
