Kaito - 1st Omakase Experience

  • 2

OMG… food porn…

My wife and I were lucky enough to get a reservation over the holidays for 2 seats at the front corner and enjoyed a 2+ hour omakase with the one and only Kaz. It was truly one of the best meals of our life and in such a simple setting.

Kaz was humorous, polite and generous and his knife skills are insane. He made sure to ask us if a product was ok before he prepared the next course. He was also concerned with what we were drinking to make the pairing just perfect. I don’t know why… but we were slightly hesitant for a while to go here after reading all the posts (even drove by once and kept going) but this was very relaxing and we cannot wait to go here again. The group around us was very fun and made the experience even more memorable.

This is some of what we had… cannot remember all of the courses but I would guess we had 1-2 more than what I have listed here.

Daikon salad
Miso soup
Halibut
Scallops
Clams
Octopus
Eel (deep fried spine too!)
Fried oysters
Toro hand roll (Amazing!)
Uni

Bill for 2 people was $170 and included 4 alcoholic drinks and the tip. Worth every penny!
