Unique Japan restaurant culture

OMAKASE
“Omakase” is a method for ordering food at sushi bars, Japanese restaurants, and other establishments. Ask for it, and the chef will take into consideration various factors such as available ingredients, weather, and hints gleaned from conversation with customers to offer a selection of cuisine that suits the occasion and circumstances. If you have a budget in mind, be sure to let the chef know that first.
OSUSUME/HIGAWARI
Many restaurants in Japan offer a lunch menu that varies by day or featured menu items that are only available on certain days. Such menu items are a great way to sample the restaurant’s original character while learning more about Japanese food culture.
OTOSHI/TSUKIDASHI
These small appetizers are served at izakaya-style restaurants, where they serve as a seating charge or to tide customers over until the first food they order arrives. Pricing, which varies by restaurant, ranges from around ¥300 to ¥500.
