Chef German Sega of Roka Akor on the Art of Omakase and What You Should Know About Japanese Food

This is part two of our interview with chef German Sega of Scottsdale's Roka Akor. Today, he tells us what goes into creating an omakase dinner and shares his pretty peculiar culinary guilty pleasure. (Hint: It involves Spam.) If you missed the first part of the interview, in which Sega gave us the scoop about his time at Sea Saw under chef Nobuo Fukuda and shared his thoughts on Phoenix as a food town, you can read it here.
