Morimoto Asia's new omakase is すごい !!

Posted By on Tue, Nov 8, 2016 at 9:14 AM

There's a new omakase in town and it's nothing short of impressive.

The multicourse parade of plates presided over by executive chef Yuhi Fujinaga at Morimoto Asia is truly one of finer gastronomic experiences to be had in Orlando, though at $150 per person, it's also one of the priciest.



I'm sure there's some saying about the value of experience over money or some such thing, but these photos of the 9-course, 15-dish event might be proof enough.
