Though Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto is best known for his Japanese fusion cuisine, that doesn't stop his namesake restaurants from occasionally taking a more traditonal route.

Opened in August last year, Morimoto Bangkok now offers an omakase sushi experience on Tue-Sun for both lunch (B4,000) and dinner (B6,000). 

Here, you leave your meal of 6-7 courses up to head sushi chef Tomoki Sasada (previously of Ginza Sushi Ichi), who rolls out edomae-style sushi, made using three kinds of vinegar. On our last visit, we especially loved his cured saba and bruleed shimp castella cake. 

The sushi is preceded by delicate appetizers like a dish of deep-fried tiny sawagani crabs, put together with female snow crab meat, its eggs and vinegar jelly, and a plate of mini sashimi rolls with pickles and oh-so-tender grilled octopus. 

Dessert is back firmly in chef Morimoto’s trademark East-meets-West territory, though, with options like strawberry tart and banana ice cream.
