Omah's

Omah's was a great little Malaysian restaurant that we went to with cost- conscious friends on Thursday night. This year, Omah's has been awarded 3 stars for The Age Cheap Eats 2007 guide. A few friends have said that they were great but I found the food at Omah's nothing out of the ordinary. Not to say that it isn't good, some dishes such as the beef rendang and
large wok-tossed Tamarind Prawns (with chilli, onion, & crisp apple) were really delicious with just the right blend of spices. But the spring rolls tasting plates were unfortunately very ordinary. Perhaps we didn't order the right things.. as apparently their soft shell crab and fried calamari are great but we didn't order them.


On the upside, their dessert is absolutely delicious! With 8 people, we were able to taste various desserts. - Tabioca (Cassava) pudding with coconut milk and eggs, pandan sago with coconut milk and palm sugar, and Banana fritter served with a drizzling of palm sugar & vanilla ice cream. The Pandan Sago was out of this world... I really want to replicate this at home! Have to buy palm sugar!

If you are in Port Melbourne, if not for dinner do drop by for dessert... especially for the Pandan Sago.

Hey Kazmic - I'm actually house sitting around there in a few weeks time, so I may just have to think of a good excuse to go and try their desserts :-)

BTW, I have moved the address of my blog. Can you redirect your link for tummy rumbles to http://www.tummyrumbles.com/ ? Thanks :-)

Just came across this blog and couldn't find a way of contacting you directly so I'm commenting here.

As you seem to like writing about Melbourne restaurants, I'm wondering if you would be interested in contributing to Melbourne Wiki at http://www.melwiki.com.
