Omakase @ Morimoto Philadelphia

>> Feb 5, 2013

After being in Philly for close to 2 years, I finally decided to try the Omakase at Morimoto. I've had the sushi lunch on numerous occasions and gotta say it was pretty darn good for 26USD. 

I was seated at the sushi bar for the meal.

Toro Tartare

Toro Tartar topped with Oscietra Caviar

This dish was one of the best dishes that afternoon. The toro tartare was mixed with a good amount of fried onion to give it that wonderful crunch. The soy dressing went really well with the fish and dollops of wasabi on the side. The wild Japanese mountain peach was a nice palate cleanser after the tartar.

White Fish Carpaccio

This dish was extremely good as well. The fish was dressed with a good amount of soy sauce and ladled with smoking peanut oil. My only complain was it was a little too oily.

Sawara (Spanish Mackerel) Sashimi Salad

Looking at previous reviews, I was really hoping to get the yellowtail sashimi salad. I was presented this instead. It was actually pretty darn good though. My only complain was that the dish was a little too salty.

Seared Sea Scallops

A very nicely done scallop. Perfectly cooked, and served with a brown butter sauce and shitake mushroom.

Black Cod Miso

This had to be the worse dish of the afternoon. The fish was a overcooked. I was hoping for a crispy skin but was disappointed when the skin was soggy. Being marinated in miso, I could understand why the skin was soggy. It is really tough to achieve a crispy exterior when the fish skin is not dry before cooking.

Assorted Sushi

The sushi never fails to disappoint. The sushi at Morimoto usually comes with freshly grated wasabi, something I have grown to appreciate.

Passion Fruit Panna Cotta

This dessert was surprisingly good. I thought it was a wonderful way to end the meal. The panna cotta on its own was nothing to shout about. However, when taken with the chocolate crunch and balls of passion fruit jelly, it was pretty darn good.

All in all, a good meal. Will come back again.
