Remember I said that I’ll go back to Onaka again and again? Empty words they are not, as we’ve been back a couple of times for brunch (lost all my tofu scramble/eggplant bacon photos, oops) and dinner!
Worthy of mention is the stuffed tofu, a hearty starter with a delish sauce which I wish my mom can whip up at home. Unfortunately, she’s not a good cook (she admits it!) and this seems to have been taken out of the recently launched new menu (oh why why why~).
Stuffed Tofu ($8++)
steamed tofu, brown rice and mushroom stuffing, edamame, shimeji, tamari and sesame dressing
Omega 3 Rice ($18++)
organic brown rice, seared salmon flakes, steamed edamame, freeze dried sweet corn, orange soy sauce
Also worthy of mention is Omega 3 Rice — but for completely different reasons. $21 for such a meagre portion of flaked salmon is overpriced, period.
Pear & Salmon ($22++)
seared 47°C salmon, asian pear julienne, soft boiled egg, spring onions, pine nuts, sesame-soy dressing
This one needs no mention. Definitely still my favourite dish at Onaka!
