What’s New in Ooma’s Menu?
Long-time fans know that a trip to Oomoa wouldn’t’ be complete without ordering the resto’s best-selling Aburi, Gyudon, Gyoza, and Hanger Steak. But with Ooma’s new menu, you’ll surely discover more favorites from their selection of Small Plates, Gunkans, Udon, and Katsu Hot Plates!
Exciting new starters await your palate, featuring clean yet appetizing flavors from Ooma’s recently launched Cauli & Nasu Poppers and Beef Tartare.
Awaken your appetite with Cauli & Nasu Poppers–a mix of cauliflower and eggplant tempura, tossed in a beautiful honey-miso sauce, and served with a curry mayo to elevate the dish with spice and earthiness!
Not to miss is the Tuna & Beet Tartare, a dish that showcases a balance of texture and taste. Served cold, you’ll love the contrast of meaty tuna and crunchy beet slices and the dance of citrus and sesame oil balancing the whole flavor.
Now that you’re taste buds are set for more fiery dishes, it’s time to indulge in Ooma’s Gunkans. Taking a spin on the classic “Battleship Sushi”, Ooma introduces these boat-shaped sushi bites that come in Salmon and Cheese, Chili Crab, and Spicy Scallop!
The Salmon and Cheese Gunkan is as delicious as it sounds, putting together salmon and cucumber in a sesame and scallion dressing, then topped with luscious blow-torched cheese.
Then, we have the Chili Crab Gunkan with crispy asparagus and soft crab meat, all mixed in a spicy rayu oil mayo. The gunkan is then blow-torched and then topped with Szechuan peppercorns and crunchy enoki.
Last but definitely not least, the Spicy Scallop Gunkan with layers of Tamago and scallop cubes tossed in two kinds of mayo then blow-torched to create a deeper, savory flavor!
That’s not where the fun ends! Ooma also added more substantial and satisfying eats to their menu: slurpable Udon dishes and thicker-than-usual Katsu plates!
Love noodles? This Spicy Pork Udon has chewy, silky noodles that have soaked up the umami of its sesame oil and kimchi broth base. The pork strips are juicy and the spice will hit you just right!
Ooma also offers other Udon varieties such as this Pork Katsu Curry Udon and Salmon Katsu Curry Udon. Sink your teeth into the thick cutlets–crispy on the exterior but tender and flavorful inside– while savoring the udon noodles swimming in a buttery, curry broth!
For Katsu fans out there, the Pork Katsu Hot Plate and Salmon Katsu Hot Plate are perfect for you! Breaded with panco and nori crust, these Katsus have more flavor and crunch. They’re served with a side of slaw and two sauces–tonkatsu sauce and lime-basil aioli!
