Omakase 2019 returns to Hiroshi with Master Chef Shima

Omakase 2019 returns to Hiroshi with Master Chef Shima

Hiroshi, the gourmet Japanese restaurant located at Hotel Mousai, is excited to present 2019’s OMAKASE! Launching on Wednesday, October 9th, 2019 and continuing until October 13th, this year’s OMAKASE event will be full of new Japanese taste sensations. Resident Chef Jorge Humberto Carrasco in collaboration with special guest Master Chef Hiroshi Shima invite you to try their innovative food creations. 

This signature event has been running consecutively for the past four years and this year’s version is set to be the best one yet. Hiroshi’s regular menu will be replaced by an OMAKASE style of dining and it will be your opportunity to take part in a unique chef’s table experience where our talented chefs will surprise you with sensational flavors across several courses. An à la carte menu will not be available since the tradition of OMAKASE is for guests to leave their food choices entirely up to the chef. This style of dining allows chefs to have absolute creative freedom and attending this event is a great opportunity to experience contemporary Japanese gastronomy.

Biographies of the Chefs 

Resident Chef, Jorge Humberto Carrasco

Guest Master Chef, Hiroshi Shima

Guest Master Chef, Hiroshi Shima was born in Hokkaido in northern Japan where he learned the art of traditional “Kaiseki” cuisine (traditional multi-course Japanese dinner), training under several master chefs in Kyoto. He later moved to Los Angeles to explore western cooking styles and made his name working at some of the most prestigious Japanese restaurants in the United States. He opened Sushi Roku Hollywood and he now oversees all six Sushi Roku restaurants in the U.S. 

Chef Shima’s signature style is to provide diners with a new experience of sushi and sashimi, using olive oil, chili peppers and caviar liked never paired before in Asian cooking. He is known for his “passion and curiosity for cuisine” which complements Sushi Roku’s concept for modern Asian cuisine and the art of fusion.
