Omakase experience at Nobu | Melbourne

Omakase featured image

Omakase (Japanese: お任せ Hepburn: o-makase) is a Japanese phrase that means “I’ll leave it up to you” (from Japanese “to entrust” (任せる makaseru)).

Leaving it up to the chef to come up with things for us to eat is normally not what we do. We like to know that what we put in our mouths is going to be our choices so we won’t have anyone else to blame if we don’t like what we are served. That said, we decided to try Nobu Melbourne’s new Omakase offering – we know the chef who provided us with amazing food and we know the experience would be amazing.

Chin Chin | Melbourne CBD, Australia

Over the last weekend, we caught up with a couple of new friends down from Brisbane. They wanted to try Chin Chin restaurant in Melbourne CBD. We have heard of the restaurant, and also heard people talk about that place, but we have never been there. One of the biggest reason is that the restaurant does not take reservations for small groups. Most of the time we go out to eat could be only the two of us or a small group like this case, and we don’t fancy standing in a queue just to get food, no matter how good you are. We want to reserve a table, turn up at the time of booking and be seated. No fuss, no rush.

Over the weekend, we stumbled across this Birds of a Feather cafe beside Newport train station in Melbourne while in the area attending property inspections. It was an early inspection and we thought we should get something to eat. Cam had ham cheese and tomato croissant with coffee to go, and we were surprised by the quality of food and the attractiveness of the items they had on the menu. We decided to head back there for lunch when we had a break between inspections.
