Poll: Do You Order Sushi 'Omakase'?
Omakase in Japanese translates to "it's up to you." In sushi joints, it's one way to order your evening's fare. Rather than ordering à la carte, you entrust your meal to the chef, who typically starts with lighter dishes and works up to heavier, richer selections. As Wikipedia notes, "the meal can be likened to an artistic performance by the chef." So how 'bout you? Do you prefer omakase or à la carte when ordering sushi? »
