Omakase (お任せ) is a Japanese phrase that means “I’ll leave it to you” (from Japanese 任す, entrust).

The expression is used at restaurants to leave the selection to the chef. The chef will generally present a series of plates, beginning with the lightest fare and proceeding to heaviest, richest dishes.

Customers ordering omakase style expect the chef to be innovative and surprising in the selection of dishes, and the meal can be likened to an artistic performance by the chef.

Each dish in Hapa’s omakase menu is portioned for approximately four guests. We have found that the number of dishes in the omakase menu strikes the right balance between light and heavy appetites and extra orders are rarely required.
