The main star of the dish is the mouth-watering braised pork! Tasty and tender, you can truly feel the umami taste from the pork juice. Served with white rice, Japanese egg, cucumber and mushrooms.

At first it was quite nice. The sauce was sweet instead of normal shoyu sauce. However, after a while it became quite jelat. The dish felt so thick and heavy because of the sweet sauce mixed with onsen egg. Furthermore, the wagyu beef has some fat layers, resulted in ‘super oily’ feeling.

Based on the price point, it was not a bad deal; yet not what somethint I would go back for.

The chirashi is decent, yet nothing extraordinary. The fish roe given is generous, the sashimi are fresh, however, the portion is not as huge as I expected as it is quite pricey ($22); compared to the other dishes.

For 1-for-1 offer, it is not a bad option, but I would not go for a full-price. I would think twice if I would like to visit again! Especially if the service team is still not friendly as per what I experienced during my first visit.

Wah never expected the sushi in a ramen place will be this good! Honestly, I like the sushi better than the ramen. The rice was wrapped with 2 roasted salmon, topped with warm mentai sauce... yummm, the melting sensation is unforgetable. The dish is served very fast (within 10 minutes), making it a perfect appetizer.

Definitely one of the most underrated dishes in this place. The salmon comes in huge chunks, bringing out the fresh chewy salmon texture as you can bite and chew! Honestly I prefer my salmon to be served in chunks rather than diced into small cubes. The tamago and cucumber are also quite fresh.

I find this menu less jelat than the salmon mentai and truffle wagyu. There are 2 sizes - small ($13.90) and regular ($18.90). Small is just nice for a small eater like me.

Notes: Omote just launched their Menu 2.0 on 17 July 2019.

This menu is part of Omote’s 2.0 menu, under the new contemporary modern donburi, offering 3 variations of don:
1. Salmon Mentai - definitely my favourite part of the dish; the mentai sauce is super creamy while the salmon is torched in aburi style. It was executed well as the aburi salmon is still juicy and not too dry!
2. Cubed Salmon in Spicy Cheese Sauce - the wasabi taste is a bit strong for me. The salmon cubes are cold with crunchy texture.
3. Assortment Chirashi - Omoté’s classic dish which never goes wrong! The chirashi is fresh with generous chunks of salmon, tuna and tako.

The scallops (hotate) are super huge! They torched them for a while and served while still warm. The moment you bite the scallop, it melts in your mouth! Yummm... the scallop melts yet still juicy and crunchy, enabling you to chew them. The mentai sauce is a perfect combi as it gives you that ‘umami’ taste, preventing you feeling too ‘gao’ from eating those gigantic scallop

Shiok Maki 1 is definitely the go-to sushi!
The fusion sushi roll comprises of thick torched salmon, cucumber with lots lots lots of tobiko and special shiok sauce (my fave). The sauce taste is like sweet thick mayonnaise. Opt for less tobiko if you are not a big fan of fish roe.

They will serve the sushi with ginger as garnish.

Too salty! And it was not as juicy as normal gyoza. I have to eat the gyoza (without dipping it to soya sauce) with white rice so it balances the flavour.

The original flavour is still the best.

Salmon belly, aburi salmon, snow crab, ikura and house-made pickles [based on menu]

My favourite is, unexpectedly, the snow crab! Soft and milky texture, it really goes well with the rice seasoned with special blend of furikake and tare.

The salmon is quite fresh and thick, however, I was wondering where’s my aburi salmon! The salmon I got was 3 pieces of salmon sashimi (raw) and another 3 pieces of salmon belly sashimi (raw).

The portion is not as big as I expected, however, it is sufficient to make my tinytummy happy.

My 5th time coming back for this aburi salmon bowl topped with sinful-mayo sauce! The salmon cubes were marinated with shoyu before it was lightly torched. Honto oishii desu! Strongly recommend this if you like sweet and thick sauces.

One thing to note is only cash payment accepted.

Love it as noodle is thick and chewy! The fried chicken (karaage) is a bit oily while the char siew is not as juicy as I expected.

The place is small though (only 20+ seaters) so be prepared to queue for a while during dinner time.
