Jaya One was abound with excitement last week when Yama & J had a soft opening. Colorful balloons were strung across the entrance and stairs leading up to the upper level (just above Starbucks) where the bar restaurant is located.
With more than 27 years of Japanese culinary experience, mainly in the USA, Chef Yama brings forth and shares his expertise in sushi. His expertise lies in the creation of special sauces that are paired with his sushis. The secret of his interpretation of “fusion” lies in his creative sauces, which he perfected in the years he spent learning from many master chefs in America, particularly from New York.
This post is more or less dubbed as “Sushi Porn” as you feast your eyes on the colorful sashimi and sushi creations by Chef Yama, drizzled with all his signature sauces. Be warned: this post is super-heavy with photos!
