Omakase is specific to sushi—or was, until now.
Those who love sushi are already well acquainted with the omakase style some restaurants offer. While there aren’t many places that have this carefully crafted option (at a reasonable price) there are certainly enough in the city for you to choose from.
However, there was never really an option for those carnivores craving a similarly procured meal. That all changed with one restaurant’s “Bacon Omakase” menu option. BELLY Korean Bacon Shop in Williamsburg is the first restaurant to offer this in New York City.
The lineup for this meal features nine delicious items. It begins with a homemade liver mousse, continues to Bacon Sushi 2.0 (with pork jowl, lime, salt, and wasabi), all the way through to the Surf & Turf (pork belly, catch of the day, miso beurre blanc, and honey butter potato), and ending with dessert.
Huge plus: the meal is reasonably priced at $55, in comparison to sushi omakase which ranges up to $675 at Masa.
