Hello everyone! Hope you liked our first feature about Food Hop 2017 food crawl by Zomato and The Grove by Rockwell. Now, it’s time to write about our EATSperience in our 2nd stop, Om Indian Kitchen, and it is just a few steps away from Pi Breakfast and Pies. Om Indian Kitchen is a contemporary Indian restaurant that prides itself of great-tasting samosas, curry dishes, and many more. We were really looking forward to this EATSperience because we have heard a lot of good things about their food. Last Saturday, we finally had the time to see whether Om Indian Kitchen is really buzz worthy. Join us as we EATSperience some of their bestselling dishes in this edition of EATSplorations!
Named after the Sanskrit word “Om” which is a sacred sound and spiritual icon in the Hindu religion. Om Indian Kitchen definitely wants to give their diners a place where they can unwind after a stressful day or just to simply have a lovely meal with a relaxing ambiance. The place may be small but it gives diners an intimate EATSperience not only because of its vibrant interior, but also because of the inviting aroma coming from their busy kitchen.
Say hello to Om Indian Kitchen’s Kebab, Samosa, Naan, and Butter Chicken! Are you hungry yet? Well, at this point of the Food Hop 2017 food crawl, we were still pretty hungry. That’s why when these beautiful and fragrant dishes made their way onto our table, we quickly snap some shots and proceeded to the tasting part right away. Now, let’s take a closer look one dish at a time!
[Mr. Eats] Perfectly fried crust! Crispy but not greasy at all. The spiced potato and green peas filling was tasty without being too spicy. Best eaten with Om’s tamarind chutney. My favorite of this EATSperience!
[Mrs. Eats] Upon getting my share of the Samosa, I felt the weight of it, that gave me an impression that it is packed with filling. It is not just packed but the filling itself was delicious. The potatoes and the green peas were seasoned well and the Tamarind Chutney complemented every bite.
[Mr. Eats] I have always been a big fan of the classic Naan and Butter Chicken tandem. However, I wasn’t so happy with this one because the Naan was not the usual crusty bread that was cooked in the Tandoori oven. Good thing the Butter Chicken was pretty good. I was able to enjoy it because of its mild curry and tender slices of chicken.
[Mrs. Eats] I loved their Butter Chicken. The chicken was tender and the sauce was rich and creamy. What I enjoyed most was that it was mildly spiced and I was able to appreciate the spices used for it.
[Mr. Eats] I was too excited to try this one that I forgot to put some mint-yogurt chutney on it. Too bad. However, I loved this dish because of the bold flavors coming from the spices that Om Indian Kitchen used. I almost ordered some biryani to pair up with this superb skewered dish. Well done!
[Mrs. Eats] I definitely agree with my husband—biryani rice would be good to eat this skewers with. Tender and well-spiced minced pork, plus the mint-yogurt chutney gave a refreshing taste to it.
All in all, we enjoyed our EATSperience at Om Indian Kitchen. It was a short yet worthwhile EATSperience, as we enjoyed the ambiance and the food. We would love to be back to try out their other dishes and slow things down to simply appreciate every single dish. Watch out as we write about our third and last stop for Zomato and the Grove by Rockwell’s Food Hop 2017 food crawl.
