Omakase: Laughing Monk Café

Valentine's day just past and I had the pleasure of trying out Omakase for the very first time thanks to my boyfriend (for all of his research). "Omakase is a traditional Japanese dining style in which the chef provides a quality meal based on availability, budget, taste, and seasonality. It is basically like a “tasting menu,” but omakase is so much more than that. It is an incredibly intimate experience and very human experience that is best thought of as a verbal and non-verbal dialogue between you and the chef.

After all of his research, we ended up at the Laughing Monk Cafe at Brigham Circle, Boston. It was only recent years that I have come to appreciate raw fish (I use to be that girl that only ate shrimp tempura rolls). I am so incredibly thankful that I was able to experience all of the diverse favors this Omakase experience has brought to us. Chief Nick is incredible! The hybrid Omakase offered here focuses on incorporating Thai and Japanese flavors together with fresh ingredients including sushi menu, pad thai, drunken noodle, curry.

I highly recommend trying Omekase here if it's your first time. I had such a memorable time, the waitstaff was incredibly kind, patient, and informative. Many of the dishes were seared but nonetheless incredibly delicious and had delightful flavors. One thing to note is that Omekase dishes all vary depending on when you go and where you go. Many restaurants will showcase dishes of fish that are in popular or in season.
