It’s official. FOMO, a new hipster food court @ Sultan Gate has opened its doors to the world! Whatever preconceived notions you have about food courts, throw those out of the window because FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out indeed) was built on Instagrammability. No seriously, every inch is picturesque and just begging to be part of your social media archives.
I was lucky enough to be invited for their media launch so here’s the low-down on ALL 7 OF THEIR VENDORS. If you’re thinking normal kopitiam fare like Ban Mian, Chicken Rice and Fish Soup, you’re not going to find them at FOMO fo sure.
Fancy some Louisiana style seafood? I tried their Seafood Nasi Lemak and trust me when I say it’s a Nasi Lemak on steroids. Other than the fact that they serve everything fresh, the highlight for me was the “secret sambal sauce” they drizzled over the prawns. This sauce packs a punch with strong seafood flavors that accentuates the dining experience ttm (to the max).
The Nasi Lemak set costs $8.90.
Following their success at Millennia Walk, Poke Doke extends their reach with this new outlet at FOMO. With numerous Poke bowl places vying for market share, how does Poke Bowl stay competitive? The answer lies in their toppings. 30 different varieties in fact! Enjoy the freshest fish at an affordable price. There’s no denying the health benefits of Poke Bowls either.
Their Signature Poke Bowl is priced at $14.
From the people that brought you Jimoto Ya, helmed by Chef Nobumasa Mieda of Michelin-Starred Kaiseki Restaurant, Mieda. Zamza doesn’t disappoint with its oh-so-tender chicken. I tried both the Donburi and Chicken Based Ramen. For the Donburi, I loved the Chicken Yakitori and the Chicken Skin Yakitori. I was a little skeptical when I saw the Chicken Ramen though (comes in clear and creamy broth options) but the first bite of the chicken meat and all my reservations went out the door. It’s just pure bliss.
The Chicken Ramen is priced at $10
What’s good here? The Mochi of course! Diners are spoilt for choice with a wide range of assorted flavors to choose from. I went with Matcha, Thai Ice Tea & Taro. That lovely ice cream interior blends perfectly with the light and fluffy Mochi exterior. They’re as good as they look and you wouldn’t want to miss it for the world!
The Mochi Platter costs $7.80 served on an extremely instagrammable wood board with mixed fruits.
If you want to feel full, don’t want to splurge but yet want to have something tasty, Kakak Kentang is definitely your go to place. Imagine, a Bergedil (potato ball) the size of TWO OF MY FISTS COMBINED half submerged in a savory broth for less than 10 bucks. That’s mad.
I prefer the Chicken option (Chikabom) as it comes with an extremely spicy chilli and taste like Mee Soto sans the mee. The beef version (Bombastik) was a little too rich for my palette and leaning closer to the sweeter side of things.
The regular sized option costs $6.90
While its bigger sized counterpart costs $9.90
I recommend sharing the big one with at least 4 people.
The pimply, young, adolescent me probably re-watched The Godfather like 5 times in my life and I was pretty stoked that they gave Mafia/Gangsta references to almost all their dishes. I tried their best sellers, The Al Capone which is essentially a Laksa Pasta and Call Me Meaty, a meat pizza.
I have no complaints. They do their pizza dough from scratch so instead of leaving the crusts like how I do with most pizzas, I walloped this crust down with relish!
With prices like $13.90 for the Al Capone
And $14.90 for a 10 inch Call Me Meaty, it’s definitely “an offer you can’t refuse”.
Chops Grill & Sides
In a carnivorous mood? Get the XXL Platter and you’ll get a meat galore! Cajun Chicken, Chicken Breast, Fried Breaded Fish, Grilled Salmon, Ribeye Steak and BBQ Lambshank! I’ve tried everything and I’m telling you, the steak is the cash cow (pun intended) for this place. It’s juicy, tender and just a delight with every bite.
The XXL Platter goes for $59.90
While The Grilled Steak is a cool $12.90 (Priced a lot lower than some places we know and I’m not going to mention names)
Chill Out, Relax
If you’re not there for some grub, drag a couple of mates and just chill out while having a tower (or two) of Asahi or Kronenbourg. Play a game of beer pong even!
If beer isn’t your jam, they even sell bottles of Spanish Blue Wine @ $85 nett!
Asahi towers – $55 for 1 $90 for 2
Kronenbourg towers – $65 for 1 $110 for 2
FOMO is fast becoming a gathering area for expats, youngsters and office peeps. Considering its strategic location, it’s just a matter of time before they’ll have to start a reservation system. Pretty unheard for a food court yeah? It’ll happen, mark my words. Beat the crowd and check them out soon!
