This is a Foodie Fridays - TGIF! It's time to get fat on Fridays! entry under my themed blog posts! For more info about this Singapore Food themed blog posts, do read the entry here.

I'm not sure if any of you guys may remember this... in 2010, I started this #mysterymakan tradition with JacelynEsther and Fidelis. Each of us would take turns planning makan outings and would only reveal the address on the day itself with no other details. With the Mystery Makan tradition, we visited new places and tried new food! It’s really fun and we all look forward to our Mystery Makan sessions.

This time, it was MY time to organise the Mystery Makan session! Personally, I always search for nice themed cafes to showcase in this Singapore Lifestyle Blog but this time I wanted to try something else!

As some of you guys may know, I am a huge fan of omakase. The two that I've tried so far, was amazing! The first was Standing Sushi Bar's omakase back in 2009 and the other was Teppei Restaurant omakase when Skai aka c(hubby) brought me for my birthday.

Needless to say, after my extraordinary experience at Teppei, I was searching for other omakases to try.

However for Mystery Makan, I decided to search for more economical and budget friendly options for my dining companions and I. While doing a search for affordable omakase in Singapore, I found out Sushi Kou Omakase from some reviews from fellow Singapore Food Bloggers.

So I told the girls that our Mystery Makan was at Orchid Hotel and they were surprised to find out that we were going to have omakase!

For those who have yet to try omakase, here's a quick explanation of omakase. Basically it means "I'll leave it up to you." where the dining customers do not know what to expect from the Chef. The chef will prepare dishes according to his preference and seasonal dishes and the dining customers enjoy a surprising good time.

Isn't omakase the perfect Mystery Makan venue?

Actually Sushi Kou is just located a few doors down from my favourite Teppei Restaurant in Orchid Hotel. Am extremely jealous of the people working in Tanjong Pagar! There are so much good food at Orchid Hotel!

The ambience at Sushi Kou is definitely different from the old Standing Sushi Bar and Teppei Restaurant. The restaurant is more spacious but it's definitely a very different experience as compared to Teppei.

The girls and I chose the $50 menu and these were the dishes that were served that day.

Jace's Mystery Makan was located at Bodacious Bar and Bistro at 70 Biopolis Street. A lovely place for the Westies!

I loved the decor of Bodacious. I think it's Modern Industrial inspired with lovely bright, vibrant and vintage decor.

As some of you readers may remember, the girls and I have a Mystery Makan outing going on. Each of us would take turns planning makan outings and would only reveal the address on the day itself with no other details. With the Mystery Makan tradition, we visited new places and tried new food! It’s really fun and we all look forward to our Mystery Makan sessions.

I’m so glad that i thought of this! Here are some blog entries on our previous Mystery Makan sessions!

This entry is damn belated. Reason being, I misplaced the SD card containing the pictures. After a renovation at my place and some unpacking, I finally found the SD card. But I can't find my Olympus camera's charger. Good job Nadia. GG MAX DOT COM

Anywayyyyyy! BFF organised this Mystery Makan at Table Manners located at Changi City Point!

After an uber long delay, Fidelis FINALLY organised her mystery makan session! We were extremely overjoyed cos all 3 of us were nagging her to death 😡

Turned out that her Mystery Makan session was at Epicurious, a place very familiar to both Esther and I. LOL.

We exchanged presents for Christmas and I received a very lovely perfume from Esther as she said the blue reminded her of me <3

Camwhored while waiting for the dishes!
