Established in 2022, Sushi Yujo is a modern, unconventional Japanese omakase restaurant located in the dynamic heart of the business district. Yujo in Japanese means friendship, which symbolises the camaraderie of life-long friends who decided to bring together their best experiences of travelling and dining in Japan. Diners have a choice of omakase menus at the 13-seater counter and private rooms, helmed by veteran Singaporean chef Desmond Fong.
Chef Desmond Fong
Helming the kitchen is Chef Desmond Fong with 20 years of culinary experience, specialising in the art of omakase. Diners will recall Chef Fong’s warm hospitality and attention to detail when he was previously the head chef at Sushi Jin, part of the Les Amis Group.
As a Singaporean chef, chef Fong looks to challenge the norms and bring innovative twists to the traditional Japanese omakase experience, all of which are researched and tested to impress.
He says, “Singaporeans are extremely fond of Japanese cuisine, which I have specialised in during my career. However, they may have a preference for certain flavours over others, while also wanting more interesting inputs as they dine. My cuisine at Sushi Yujo takes all these observations and feedback into account to conceptualise a memorable, modern Japanese omakase that will offer fine ingredients at great value.”
Chef Fong, who is known for his cooked sushi will be delivering the season’s best combined with his expertise. Diners can expect his signatures, Aburi Ootoro, a melt-in-your-mouth flavour bomb where slightly seared ootoro is topped with negitoro, truffle caviar and gold leaf, and Aburi Foie Gras, where foie gras is draped over a slice of scallop on rice and torched till the fat sizzles before topped with sea urchin and caviar.
