9 years! Can you believe we've been married for almost a decade? Crazy times! Crazy but good times 😁 We had a quick anniversary lunch at Kaunta (quick, not because of our kids but the insane meetings WFH has brought about) and times like these do make us grateful that there are still moments worth celebrating.
We went with the Omakase Aoi set, which comes with 8 sushi pieces, appetizer, hot dish, miso soup and dessert. A key differentiator here is Kaunta ages their fish, which results in deeper flavours. I also really loved their hotate, which had been lightly dipped in sake. We had space for another piece of sushi and the chef prepared aburi engawa, which never fails to deliver.
While we loved the sushi sizes here, the chef is a little heavy-handed with wasabi and I requested for less after a couple of pieces. Honestly, I can't nitpick much but it does lack a wow factor and the service was a little rough around the edges. There are still plenty more places to hit up for omakase and if I do ever find myself in the mood for value-for-money omakase, I would hit up Miraku again.
