Yes yes it’s finally an update from me. I was away in Perth for a while to visit the Mr’s family and then arrived back in Melbourne for one night. The next day I jetted off to Sydney for work. It has been a few hectic weeks and now I made the time to blog.
WOOHOO I finally going to blog about one of my favourite restaurants in Melbourne YES it’s Omah’s. This was my 4th visit when my friend Miss A was visiting Melbourne. Miss A is a big fan of crabs so we had to take her to Omah’s. Omah’s have a fixed price of crabs of $45.9 (increased from $40 previously). As usual every time before I visit I make sure to pre-order the crabs at least a day in advance. This time it was no different. Funnily there wasn’t any crabs when we arrived even when we pre-ordered. But luckily they made a trip within 15 minutes and came back to us with a crab yay! Last night there was a big order of 25 crabs the night before which is why the missing crabs
My number one choice for crab is definitely the Salted egg crab. I have previously tried black pepper and chilli crab which were both fantastic but nothing hit my mouth with drooling saliva like the salted egg crab. I think it has happy crack 😀
Next we ordered loh bak, minced chicken marinated with 5-spice, fried in bean curd skin. Miss A is having the Loh Bak for the first time and fell in love with it. I gave Omah’s version a thumbs up too it was very crispy and tasted delicious. I tried quite a few versions of loh Bak and now Omah’s tops it 🙂
Ikan bakar fish – mild spiced fish with onion and orka on banana leaf. We make sure to order a more mild fish dish this time. Previously we tried the nyonya fish and it was the so spicy. This fish suited my spice palette more.
One small negative is we couldn’t takeaway our food! I wouldn’t mind paying a takeaway fee on top – oh well! Side note Omah’s in Port Melbourne is Opal’s now. There is also some gluten free options of the menu which is handy 🙂
