Authentic Japanese Restaurant
Located at one corner on the 2nd level of Cuppage Plaza, Nagomi is a hidden gem that you do not wish to miss! A small establishment for about 20-30 sitters, it was fully packed when we arrived. Nagomi is an Omakase restaurant, which means “I’ll leave it to you” in Japanese; the selection of food is up to the creativity of the chef and the freshest ingredients he/she has on hand.
This restaurant ambiance is very different from other japanese restaurants which i have been. The feeling when i entered this restaurant is that i really felt like i was really in japan as most of the customers there are japanese, the staff who serve us are also japanese. Sashimi platter was very fresh. Fried fish with salt and yuzu - served hot and crunchy. Braised Kurobuta (Black Pig) belly was well marinated, soft yet firm. The meat and its sinful fats really melt the moment it is in your mouth. Takabe shio yaki - The whole fish was salt grilled at the right temperature and duration. The flesh was soft and sweet. Wagyu beef - Tender grilled, medium prepared with shio dipping sauce. The last dish was a small bowl of congee. First glance, it looks like any ordinary congee but we were wrong. It was well simmered with egg and chicken in it.Our dessert was a slice of Japanese rock melon. We all know that 1 rock melon cost a bomb at the supermarket. Every piece was bursting with sweetness. Wish I could have another slice!The whole meal costs $130++ per person. You can inform the chef beforehand if you have a budget in mind and he will vary the number of dishes for you.
All in all, I truly enjoyed the whole experience. If you are looking for a restaurant to celebrate a special occasion, Nagomi is a place you might want to consider.
