OmoOmo fuses Korean and Japanese flavours and cooking techniques with other cuisines to create interesting noodle and rice bowls. It also offers reasonably priced bento sets and combo meals. Like many F&B establishments in Singapore, OmoOmo now offers online ordering and pickup and delivery services.
Chug Chug Paya Lebar is one of those hard to define F&B outlets. It can be a family restaurant or it can be a bar and its food is a fusion of varied cuisines. Located in PLQ 3 with al fesco seating by a mini park, the new Chug Chug in Paya Lebar Quarter is a nice place for the after work crowd and can also be an all day dinning spot where parents and kids can have a good affordable family meal.
Chang Korean BBQ is a Korean restaurant at Loewen by Dempsey Hill. The Loewen by Dempsey Hill is an extension of the core Dempsey dining area. The Loewen enclave is a few minutes walk from PS Cafe. The tenants in these former colonial buildings in the Loewen area include education, lifestyle and art establishments, a yoga and pilates studio, a luxury pet hotel (Waggington) and f & b outlets. Chang Korean BBQ is one of them.
Many in Singapore are well acquainted with famous Korean names like Samsung, BTS and Black Pink because handphones and K-pop have become South Korea’s key exports. Few may realise it, but Korean fried chicken has also become a huge international export. There are many Korean fried chicken restaurants in Singapore already. 맘스터치 Mom’s Touch Singapore is the latest to bring Korean fried chicken to our island.
Mom’s Touch Singapore
Mom’s Touch Chicken & Burger Restaurant is brought to Singapore by No Signboard Holdings, a company listed on the Catalist Board of the Singapore Exchange. According No Signboard’s website, Mom’s Touch has over 1,200 stores across South Korea and in major cities in the USA, Taiwan and Vietnam. Their chicken is said to be hand-battered and hand-breaded in the kitchen and marinated with their own special blend of seasoning.
The Korean fast food chain’s first restaurant in Singapore is at the new PLQ Mall. Mom’s Touch occupies a small space on the ground level of PLQ Mall facing the plaza. The food preparation area takes up most of the indoor space, leaving a narrow strip for the self ordering kiosks and waiting area. Two small tables and a bar counter against the glass panel are squeezed into the compact air-conditioned shop space. There are, however, ample seating out in the sheltered naturally ventilated plaza.
We were looking for a place to have coffee the other day and decided on Coffeesmith Orchard Central. It has a wonderful location along the long indoor corridor that stretches from Orchard Central to 313 Orchard. One can walk from Killiney Road to Mandarin Gallery in (mostly) air-conditioned comfort. Which is why there is a constant flow of pedestrian traffic in this area. The song “Music to Watch the Girls Go By” came to mind when we were there. I had initially wanted to borrow part of the title of the song for this post, but decided to use the more gender neutral phrase instead.
