Modern Japanese restaurant Omoté is going places, with brand new outlets at both Raffles City and Novena Square Velocity in such as short span of time.

With its first outlet at Thomson Plaza and previously known as “Sushiro”, it is popular for its range of donburi, fusion flavours, value-for-money Japanese food, and well… long queues.

Omoté has fine-tuned its menu and is now more known for its progressive Japanese cuisine with an Asian influence.

The Novena Square outlet continues to enjoy good publicity and thus slightly long queue, decorated with pastel colours of yellow, pink and green, playing Top 40s for a more vibrant atmosphere.

Signature bowls include the Umami Soy Chirashi ($19.80), Truffle Roasted Garlic Chirashi ($23.80), Spicy Lobster Triple Chirashi ($24.80), Ikura Supercharge Chirashi ($32.80), and Sanshoku Chirashi ($22.80) which includes three variants of salmon sashimi.

While Omoté used to be known for really affordable bowls, prices have slowly gone up. (5-6 years ago, a bowl was $12.80.)

And wait, did the bowls get slightly smaller?

One of the signature bowls is the Umami Soy Chirashi ($19.80), with salmon, tuna, octopus, prawn and salmon roe in a palm-sized sushi rice bowl.

There is a change in the seasoning from the original formula, incorporating a savoury roasted soy marinate now.

Compared to the usual chirashi bowls (with minimal seasoning), you would find the pieces here more heavily-marinated with more liberal use of sauces.

Thus this should appeal to a customer base which prefer more robust-flavours.

The menu has also incorporated more items for sharing, including Chargrilled Unagi Kabayaki, Scallop Mentaiyaki ($13.80), Grilled Salmon Belly Teriyaki, Hamachi Kabayaki, Ebi Tempura to Chargrilled Classic Strip Salad.
