Omoni Restaurant - Bandar Sri Damansara, KL

What's new in Sri Damansara? To be honest nothing much. Just a nice place to stay but I must enter a caveat here. Nowadays predators are lying in wait for the unsuspecting. Offices being broken into. Diner had his notebook snatched while surfing at the mamak shop. Mother with children being robbed outside her home. Home burgled when family out for B/F for 2 hours on a Sunday morning! Something to learn from the the security companies transporting ATM cash. They are much better armed compared to just a year or two ago. For ordinary folks, exercise common sense to enhance personal security. Perhaps investing in an alarm system for home security.

Back to food, Omoni Restaurant was recommended to me by a friend who have been staying in BSD for a long time. We have gone there twice and the food is reasonable "tai chow" stuff. Nice for an unrushed eat when in a rush. I am sure KLites will catch my drift here. Going to 1 U, Ikano, Curve or Kepong is still an option but traveling time is a big deterrent.

Three plus points for Omoni: Air-con, spacious 25+ feet frontage and reasonable prices.

We had this Fish Head Curry on both occasions we were there. Above average with fresh grouper (kerapu) heads. Yes "heads" for we have 2 smaller ones. We also tried to ordered otak-otak another of their signature dish but was discouraged as we were already having a curry dish.
Their signature round tofu cake. Cake was lightly deep-fried. The outer layer is crusted skin. Good feel when eaten. Came with good amount of toppings (dried prawns mix) that flavoured the smooth and rich but bland soy taste. Very good.
"Yeu Mak" with garlic. Flat. Preferred those with a ladle full of stock added in to provide the taste to the vege.
Omoni is in Jalan Tanjung SD13/1.

The tofu is big in size, so fragile, wonder how they manage to deep fry it.

In these dangerous times , we need to be lean & mean, means carry only 49 ringgit cash maximum in our wallets ( yes carry only 1 wallet ) and a used old notebook to surf outside . and travel in a bigger group like what team bsg does ! We will attack first...beware
LOL !

SimpleGirl said...

CUMI & CIKI said...

so dangerous.. that day cumi said to me, consider leaving the handbag and stuff everything into your pockets. How to upgrade to bigger camera la then.. :P

Seldom c tofu in round shape~~

worldwindows said...

teckiee... taste good too.

BB... Just be careful esp. those who like to work in cafes and coffee shops.

tnG... The worst of times.

LI... Tai Chi?!

FP... Maybe the triangle ones are coming:)

Selba... Not too far away, ya.

worldwindows said...

BSG... RM49 good idea in small change. That's what I do overseas with small change ready without exposing the big notes!

SG... I like the Indian style curry, best.

BKL... I like to surf with my Nokia E90 but indoors and in the middle of shop, feel safer.

FB... Either the grouper or the Chinese carp for me.

CampC... DSLR for posh joints. Outdoors put the sling around the neck and get Cumi as a bodyguard.

MD... The only practical reason for square or rectangular is for easy storage. Round shapes have a lot of unused spaces if put into boxes.

Allie said...

the round tofu cake makes me hungry now... You so bad! Now i'm craving for it d... whr can I get round tofu cake now??

Big Boys Oven said...

I love how the tofu, looks great n very appealing to me!

worldwindows said...

Allie... Sorry for that maybe some soya bean drink will help:)

BBO... Imaginative work though more efforts needed for storage space.
