My journal of foood musings and eating memoirs
I’ve been seeing hoardings of the “Om made café” around Koramangala and hearing about it too. So we visited and it turned out to be the kind of places I love to be at. This is a pretty place. Tucked away on the roof top of a very regular building but transforming into a taking you away from Bangalore restaurant. It is an uncluttered space, clad in white and hints of orange and mustardy yellow, simplistic design, pop art, a mix and match of furniture, old wooden doors, and simple white plates with blue rims. Everywhere you look you will find something quirky and very Indian, like the autorickshaw meters hanging outside the loos (restrooms). I was wondering where this little piece of niceness came from and discovered that the Om made cafe is at Anjuna Goa and has recently been brought to Bangalore.
Now the Foood.It’s European styled, serving you breakfast, lunch, dinner and the in between. The menu consists of the likes of sweet and savoury pancakes, burgers, quiche’s, sandwiches, flat breads, pastas and risottos, grilled and skewered food ,the famed “ living food” corner and a bakery counter ( We noticed some very plump & nice looking muffins in there ).
After the iced teas, which were quiet refreshing on a sunny afternoon, we dived straight into mains to satisfy our hungry souls. We ordered flat bread with onion rings, ham & mushroom and chicken brochettes, chicken glazed in honey and soy with a crust of sesame seed, skewered, served with coriander butter rice and a light salad. The flat bread had a really “flat crust” with a topping of a perfect concoction of flavors. The chicken brochettes were also very good, especially the coriander butter rice served with it. The flavors were all there and just right. Both very nicely made and very flavorsome. I can’t pick between the two as both turned out more than fine. For dessert, it was the crème caramel, light and very good. A sunny afternoon well spent at a lovely space accompanied with simple yet tasty food.
Quirky, simplistic, transporting you to another place and good flavorful food is how I’d describe the Om made cafe. I will definitely be visiting again and again.
