Omote Review: A Casual Japanese Restaurant in Singapore

What is Omote

Omote is a great spot for casual Japanese food in Singapore. Rebranded from the previous 12-seater bar, Omoté, a japanese restaurant occupies an expanded shop space on level 3 of Thomson Plaza. Tucked snugly in a corner, the eating place opens to a warmly-lit spacious interior. The menu features a wide variety of traditional Japanese dishes, such as sushi, sashimi, ramen, and tempura. The portions are generous and the ingredients are fresh and of high quality.

Since Omote has been launched, it has been revamping their menu and updating it with new dishes every six to seven months.

This is my second time patronising Omote. The first time I came, was when my friends introduced to me this restaurant.

It is known to be always crowded so it was a good thing that the restaurant upgraded from first floor to 3rd floor, occupying more space so that it can accommodate more diners.

Omote Menu and Offerings

Omoté offers a wide range of food including iconic classics out of which I tried Omote Chirashi which I absolutely loved and Salmon Booster Chirashi($25.80) which is a mix of Salmon and Caviar with a blend of Signature Chirashi, this is perfect for salmon lovers.

Then in their Quintessentials mains, they have Spicy Yakiniku Don, best option for spicy lovers to Grilled Salmon Belly Teriyaki Don, chargrilled salmon belly which is marinated with Sweet Soy Marinade. Truffle lovers rejoice, as they also have Truffle Roasted Garlic Chirashi. 

They also offer Shuko Snacks such as Edamame, Grilled Torikawa and Tori Karaage. In short, Omote’s dishes cater to all crowds. You will find something that is tantalizing for your tastebuds!

Omote is a to-go place for people who relish Japanese cuisine in Singapore. At Omote, they have a lot of customers visiting Omote specially for their affordable chirashi bowl.

Typically if you are looking for fresh bara chirashi, the price would be pretty pricey. And if the price is low, the quality of the ingredient would be lowered.

But here, you get fresh bara chirashi, and still at an affordable price, that’s the reason why so many people love Omote!

Every bowl is topped with a generous serving of diced sashimi. And the rice portion underneath the raw fish is quite a lot too. They have condiments at the side, I had some soy sauce to dip with my sashimi.

Mentaiko fans, you will be delighted! Omote has Mentai Chirashi Don too. Chirashi is smothered with creamy mentai sauce, then torched before being served.

There are also donburi served like Yakiniki Don, an assortment of sushi, sashimi, Japanese appetizers, and Chirashi don.

Notwithstanding sushi, Omote is more widely known for their Chirashi Don
