There are quite a few affordable Omakase’s in Singapore, and Ganko Sushi is one of them! Their newly introduced Chef’s Value Omakase Menu allows you to savour their omakase experience for $98++ per person.
This set meal is available for both lunch and dinner.
Bright, Spacious Interior
Boasting an interior with floor-to-ceiling glass windows, Ganko Sushi has abundant sunlight. Their neutral furnishings and industrial-like walls create a refined and stylish ambience that adds to the aesthetic of the restaurant.
Ganko Sushi Menu
The menu extends beyond Omakase to include an array of sushi platters and rice bowls, with options ranging from 5 to 12 pieces per platter. For those seeking a lunch option in the area, they offer value lunch sets as well!
Wagyu Beef Sukiyaki and Amberjack Shabu Shabu
There’s an option between the Wagyu Beef Sukiyaki and Amberjack Shabu Shabu.
The Wagyu Beef was thickly sliced, tender, and buttery. The Sukiyaki sauce was just the right level of sweetness, avoiding being too “jelak”.
Dipping the Wagyu in beaten egg coats it with a creamy, smooth texture that enhances its flavour.
The Amberjack had a fresh, clean flavour, and its firm texture provided a satisfying bite. We also enjoyed how light and savoury the Shabu Shabu is!
Each selection is accompanied by a variety of tempura that had an airy, crispy texture. The assortment features pumpkin, shrimp, and mushroom tempura, along with a perilla leaf tempura that is surprisingly free from bitterness.
The meal was complemented with sides including succulent octopus and a savoury chawanmushi that’s rich in umami flavour.
10 Piece Sashimi
The sashimi was served to us individually, allowing us to fully enjoy and appreciate each piece. The Ikura Sashimi was a burst of umami, with the Ikura offering a juicy pop in each bite.
The Uni Sashimi was subtly sweet with a creamy texture! It carried the essence of the ocean without any overpowering fishy taste. With its satisfyingly thick and fatty slices, the Ootoro Sashimi was fatty and fresh.
The sashimi selection also featured familiar favourites like Salmon, Red Snapper and Aburi Scallop!
To end off the sushi course, two pieces of baked egg, resembling that of the castella cake, were offered to provide a sweet finish.
Omakase In Dhoby Ghaut
For the amount of food we ate including the sushi, we found this value menu to be quite value for money! The general dining ambience was also comfortable and inviting, making it good for a quick meal.
