Oh My Bacon-ey Goodness at OMB cafe
Decided to head down to OMB café at Dunlop to pig out on the Saturday (30th May) before the opening promotion of Bacon Bomb ends. I was rather looking forward to go to the café because I love pork and of course, that includes bacon!
The café is in shades of bright colors- turquoise and pink, a spin-off from the usual dull colors of café interiors. One thing I like the spaciousness, which is becoming a rarity in new cafes. OMB, Oh My Bacon, a café that is bacon-centric, from bacon starters (bacon & egg cup, bacon jam with baguette), bacon in greens (salads) to bacon mains and bacon meat candy!
The drinks ice mocha and latte which we think there is nothing much to shout about. I am guessing that since bacon is the limelight here, the mains will dazzle and impress. Read on to find out.
Before I forget, there is ice water provided here (self-service) and WIFI too if you are looking for a quiet spot to do your work.
And so our bacon dishes:
Bacon Bomb served with mashed potato side (Usual Price $28, the one featured here is the $14 opening promotion portion)
Imagine bacon encasing cheese, pork and beef, it is like a bacon explosion in your mouth or a firework party with the warm gooey cheese oozing out upon bite. While I liked this dish, I was hoping for more of the cheese, or even better a cheese dip.
Carbonara – cheese, egg and bacon ($15)
This carbonara was of the non-creamy type and it is a simple yet comforting and delicious dish.
Bacon Brownie with bacon bits + Bacon Ice Cream ($4.50 + $4.50)
Saw this on the desserts menu and I knew I have to get it as I love brownies! The combination works pretty well as the tiny bacon bits added a savory edge to the THICK dark chocolate brownie fudge.
In all, OMB café is a café where BACON takes the main-stage and shine as the star while the rest fades relatively. I liked all the three bacon dishes I tried and would be back for more – Jekyll & Hyde (Bacon strips dips in chocolate) is on my cards next!
