For an authentic Japanese dining experience that’s second to none, made from the freshest produce and savoured in a tranquil ambience, Ginza Sushimasa is the top choice.
The omakase lunch menu, prepared by chef Hiroyuki Murakami, is the must-order highlight as wave after wave of sushi and largely seafood delicacies in typical Japanese bitesized portions pander to your gastronomic sensibilities.
Wake up the palate with the excellent combination of salted edamame with seaweed jelly, then proceed to stimulate the taste buds with a course of sashimi comprising fresh slices of tuna and butterfish. The grilled black cod is delightful and so is the beautifully presented combination of oysters with seaweed, with both dishes utilising ingredients that are the best in season.
Following that is the restaurant’s raison d’etre – sushi – which is prepared before you by the head chef himself and served straight to your plate. Of all the stars in the sushi line-up, the standout must be the flounder. Lightly grilled under the blowtorch and finished with a dash of rock salt, the meat is smoky, buttery with a hint of sweetness and provides an excellent mouthfeel.
