Lava Style OMUrice Is Everything You Ever Want @ OMU Singapore

James Chan

OMU Singapore

Following their success in Bangkok, Thailand (with 6 branches spread across the land of smiles), OMU opens its first outlet in Singapore! I say first outlet because I’m pretty sure there will be more to come. With long, snaking queues that stretch all the way to the Esplanade MRT station (on occasion), expansion is but a natural phenomenon.

So what’s got Singaporeans so riled up? It’s just Omurice! Or so I thought when I stepped into OMU Singapore. Then came the Lava Style Omurice. Suddenly, everything became crystal clear.

The Food

AT OMU Singapore, you’re spoilt for choice with numerous omurice offerings in different sauces. There’s Tomato Sauce, Demiglace Sauce, Curry Sauce, Cream Sauce & Japanese Style Sauce to choose from.

The thing I want to touch on most is that Lava Style Omurice. It’s a special way of making omelets where the surface of the egg is cooked but the inside is half cooked, borderline runny, creamy and full of texture. It’s really enjoyable to break the surface of the omelet to allow its beautiful interior to break free of the mold. I’m told that the chefs undergo intensive training in order to master this art.

With that in mind, you’d think that the dishes might be slightly steep on the wallet but the most expensive item on the menu is capped at $14.80 (excludes additional toppings or opting for the lava style omurice). That’s probably another reason why there’s a long queue.

Pork Hamburger Steak Omurice with Demiglace Sauce, $13.80

I obviously opted for the lava style version (trust me when I say it’ll be an additional $2 well spent). Boy oh boy. Best decision EVER! You’ve got a semi runny egg yolk enveloping a bed of tomato fried rice. And then there’s the sauce. That savory demiglace sauce is a sure fire winner. It’s not overly sweet with a hint of sourness and highly addictive. I could drink it like a soup even! Drizzle that over that perfectly cooked hamburger steak (that tastes exactly like the ones I ate when I was in Tokyo) or don’t. It’ll taste great both ways.

Mentaiko Cream Sauce Omurice, $13.80

This comes from the Japanese Styled Sauce Section and I’m told that in Bangkok, this was a promotional menu item which was a huge hit with the locals. Singaporeans tend to order this dish frequently as well. Why? Probably because the mentaiko cream sauce is light and not overtly rich on the palate. I recommend a meat add on if you’re not watching the waistline. It still tastes great without but I need a chewy protein in my meals. I also had this lava style.

Nagoya Style Red Miso Sauce Omurice, $13.80

This was my last dish and I opted for a normal version instead of the lava style to get a more wholesome understanding of omurice. Red miso is known for its not so subtle umami flavors and I think it’s perfect. There are many elements present in this dish (tomato rice, sautéed chicken, mushrooms, the pork cutlet and of course the omelet) and if a milder miso sauce was used, it would probably have been lost somewhere along the line.

Having tried the non-lava style omurice, even though I think it’s good, it would have been EVEN BETTER with the lava style option. What I’m trying to say here is, just pay the additional $2. It’s so worth it. Oh but that pork cutlet was pretty dope with its crispy exterior and super tender-to-the-bite meat!

 

Is The Juice Worth The Squeeze?

A hearty and overwhelming definite YES from me. OMU Singapore has managed to capture my stomach in just one visit. I cannot further describe how great the lava style omurice is. You just have to try if for yourself to be a believer. Let the long queues be a testament to my review then. If you don’t want to queue, you might probably want to avoid the peak hours.

How The Heck Does Eggs ‘n Things Make That Insane Whipped Cream On Them Pancakes?

James Chan

Eggs ‘n Things

Following their recent opening at the new wing of Plaza Singapura, with a name like Eggs ‘n Things, I couldn’t help but feel excited at the prospect of a high protein meal.

Eggs ‘n Things decor

The eatery couldn’t be any prettier with a strong Hawaiian theme evident to anyone who walks by. Instagram feeds are definitely going to explode with their pictures for sure. If you haven’t heard of them, let’s just say they’re really popular in Harujuku, Tokyo Japan.

Eggs ‘n Things Omelette
The Food

All their ingredients arrive fresh from Japan and they make most things in-house. I’m told that Japanese eggs are the best as they are tastier and a whole lot richer compared to our local eggs. You can easily spot a Japanese egg by their orange-hued egg yolk. Slurps.

Eggs ‘n Things Surf and Turf and Eggs

Meats & Eggs – Surf ‘n Turf ‘n Eggs, $27.90

You can choose how you want your eggs done but I went with scrambled. Nothing really stood out for me other than the prawns being a tad saltier than I would like them to be. It’s also the priciest item on the menu (probably because they use organic beef).

Eggs ‘n Things Spinach and Bacon Eggs Benedict
Eggs Benedicts – Spinach ‘n Bacon, $19.90

Just like that, a star is born. Everything about this dish is PERFECT. The bagel (made in-house), the pasteurized poached eggs with rich orange colored yolk and the bits of bacon strategically placed in the spinach. Wow. It’s a real eye opener and that’s saying something considering my Chinese heritage (I have small eyes).

Eggs ‘n Things Potato and Bacon Omelette
Omelets – Potato, Bacon ‘n Cheese, $19.90

This pales in comparison to the Spinach ‘n Bacon Eggs Benedict. There’s no going back after you’ve had a taste of heaven. I’m pretty sure this is why this dish didn’t sit very well with my palette. I felt it was a little dry to be honest. For the exact same price, I recommend the Eggs Benedict for sure.

Eggs ‘n Things Strawberry Pancakes
Pancakes – Fresh Strawberry, Whipped Cream and Macadamia Nuts, $19.90

Oh my goodness. Definitely the winner of the day (it was a close fight with Eggs Benedict). What won my heart or stomach rather was surprisingly the Whipped Cream. It was light, refreshing and just highly addictive. The pancakes themselves were fluffy and one of the better pancakes I’ve had in my life. If you want to take a picture of this dish in all its glory, you’d want to do it immediately as soon as it arrives. The tower of whipped cream loses its structural integrity really quickly (it starts collapsing in less than 5 minutes). This is a MUST ORDER.

Pair them pancakes with a series of syrups that they make in-house. Flavours include Guava (unique af), coconut and your standard maple. I personally loved the coconut.

Is The Juice Worth The Squeeze?

Hell yeah. The Eggs Benedict and the Pancakes are more than enough reason for me to revisit Eggs ‘n Things multiple times for sure. Also, based off their success in Japan (people can queue for hours to have a taste), I would say they can expect the same level of success here in Singapore. So check them out before things get too crowded!
