If you love sushi, you might be used to going to the same few restaurants. Life can be repetitive when you’re always eating in the same place, so why not change things up and try something different? The best way to experience a new restaurant is to visit them yourself, so here are four great sushi restaurants that you should add to your list of places to eat this October!

With a plethora of Japanese restaurants offering omakase-style meals, we’re spoiled for choice when it comes to this lavish experience of Japanese cuisine. Hazuki is a new Japanese restaurant that recently opened in Takashimaya, offering an unforgettable omakase affair.
You can choose between 2 different omakase dinner menus, the Hare ($280) or the Tsuki ($380). For the dinner omakase, you can expect a decadent display of sashimi, sushi, as well as some seasonal Donabe, among other courses.
