Rice Bowls & Chicken Steak at OmoOmo
We went to
“Dear Ebi” was of unsurprisingly rice topped with ebi or prawns. The surprise was that the breaded and deep fried shrimps sat on top of a kimchi omelette and Bibimbab sauce was used instead of tonkatsu sauce or tartar sauce. It was an interesting combination which turned out well. We enjoyed Dear Ebi and thought it was the best dish of the meal.
The Soy Garlic Chicken Steak was served in a metal tray which reminded us of cookhouse food during the days of national service. The chicken was definitely better than anything we remembered from the army cookhouse. The potato wedges deserved a special mention – soft pillows on the inside and crispy on the outside. Overall, the Soy Garlic Chicken Steak dish was a bit like the tray it was served on – functional but nothing remarkable.
The OMO Remix Kare Don looked good and had many ingredients – including ebi, chicken cutlet, pumpkin croquette onsen egg and Japanese style curry. There was nothing wrong with the dish or any of the ingredients. However, it was not fusion cuisine in the sense that it was a blend of diverse culinary traditions resulting in a new distinct dish. There were clearly Korean elements in the OMO Remix and distinctly Japanese elements but it was like they just happened to be in the same bowl. There was no combination which resulted in something new or different.
In the end there was no surprise or plot twist to our meal at OmoOmo Kallang Wave. The food was well prepared and nice enough but there was no innovative fusion which resulted in something new and exciting. Everything was sort of as expected – which is not a bad thing.
