Dear fellow tasters,
Omo! Last week was truly a foodie blessing and it was the third free meal for me. This time I got the invitation from a twitter quiz for the opening party of Omo! Chicken’s second outlet at Central Park Mall. Introducing great tasting Korean chicken cooked with canola oil which is supposedly healthier and friendlier to your throat, Omo! Chicken offers an alternative fast food menu, mostly chicken items and other side dishes with a Korean touch – even the flat screen panels are playing SNSD, Super Junior, and other K-Pop idols music videos. Well, I surely forgot to mention that Omo! is a Korean expression meaning ‘oh my’ or ‘oh my gosh’ (if you watch k-dramas then you will hear it a lot especially spoken by the ahjumma characters).
The Central Park restaurant looks a bit small and cramped on the inside, but they apparently have a spacious outdoor area with quite a nice view, most wonderful on cloudy days or during the night. The party started quite early before lunch time with some presentation and entertaining games by the hosts which I didn’t really bother to participate in, first because I didn’t follow the red dress code, and second I just didn’t feel like joining the already crowded commotion.
Finally it was time to eat and my friend and I decided to wait for the queue of hungry Omo! tweeps to subside before grabbing our lunch from the already prepared buffet. Thankfully, they keep restocking the food with more chicken wings, rice balls, and the tasty chicken curry burger which I quite liked. For the taste, the chicken wings were quite enjoyable. I liked the hot chicken wings better than the other ones. Looking at the menu, there are actually two other versions besides hot: soya or tomato, but I couldn’t really tell which one it was. Nevertheless, both were pretty delicious and spicy with a great gingerly taste in them.
My friend and I also liked the tasty anchovy and seaweed rice balls, and the cute colorfully-bottled Pororo drinks by Yakult which tasted similar to Yakult but with different fruit flavors. After the lunch, more games and door prizes were held but apparently no luck for me. However upon leaving, all were given a goodie bag loaded with various stuffs in it. Thank you Omo! Chicken for the invitation.
잘 먹었습니다. Jal meogeosseumnida!
