For a date as unique as your father, there’s no better place than Wakai in Fort. The menu comes together to deliver the sixth sense of Japanese cuisine — the umami. This is the essence or core of the five senses that the brand reimagines in its exclusive signature style. So it makes perfect sense for them to have curated a special Father’s Day feast which is inclusive of making their own ramen bowl with a choice of sushi.
