Ment + Omakase Hamar
The history of Omakase Hamar started in 2020 with the legendary Alex Cabiao as Head Sushi Chef. Chef Alex has retired after a super career in the sushi business, and his successor Chef Akira took over the helm in September 2022.
Chef Akira has an exciting background in sushi. He grew up in London, where he worked for several years at the sushi restaurant NOBU, including under the management of world-renowned entrepreneur and sushi chef Nobu Matsuhisa. Akira has also worked at the well-known "The Arts Club" in London - again with a well-known name in the sushi world, Kyoichi Kai. Before the pandemic broke out, Chef Akira worked for Omakase in the Japanese restaurant Cubé, also in London. Akira was born with severe hearing loss, which is hereditary. He believes his injury is something that has enhanced his other senses even more, helping to make him a better sushi chef.
