Omakase at the Sushi Bar
August 24, 2018
While the view from the tables in Nobu on the 57th floor of Tower 3 Petronas is fabulous, as always, our little group is perched on tall chairs along the sushi bar near the entrance.
This time, the lure is not in the amazing skyline but rather, the man working magic behind the counter. Philippine-born Chef Micheole Chico Anung Dator, the new head sushi chef, had previously worked in Nobu Lanai in Hawaii and Nobu Malibu under Head Sushi Chef Toshiyuki Shiramizu.

The affable chef is introducing himself to diners with his special Sushi Bar Omakase dinner in September. This is happening only on Tuesday and Wednesday, with limited seats for 11 diners, so do make reservations.

One of the nicest things about an omakase meal is that you never know what the chef’s going to come up with. It all depends on the freshest ingredients of the day, and sometimes, the chef’s mood. Glad to note that Chef Chico’s wearing a huge smile.
