O is for Oo’s Kitchen!
I am unsure what ‘Oo’s’ mean but I’m guessing it is something to do with the owner’s name or heritage?
Anyways, Oo’s Kitchen aims to deliver authentic Singaporean cuisine without the adding of MSG – which is a healthy style of cooking and one which my mum would appreciate!
Please be warned, that the seating of the store is fairly small. Try to get a booking if you can. We walked in on a Sunday lunch around 1pm, and didn’t get a table until almost 2pm (Party of 6). After waiting one hour, we were told the Special of the Day (FIsh curry) cannot be served anymore as they need to leave enough for the Evening. This was not a good start to our experience. We understand the need to conserve but it would have been good to tell us earlier. We would have done takeaway as we only wanted to dine in to share the fish curry.
We promptly ordered as we noticed the serving time is a little bit long, which we didn’t mind so if you are in a rush, best to order as soon as you can!
1. Lamb Nasi Lemak- very tasty and flavour lamb, meat was tender and easy to eat. Very yummy! I would eat this again ^_^ and looking at the lamb, I’m salivating!
2. Singaporean Katong Laksa – a typical Katong noodle soup with aromatic spices with coconut cream and rich in flavour.
This type of laksa is not as sweet as normal laksa and to me, has a more acidic and subtle aromatic base. Our table ordered two laksa’s and we compared them. One had more orange colour and the other was paler. I’m guessing the one with orange had more chilli oil and the other someone had pushed away the top layer. The one with more orange was preferred with more of a kick and more intense flavour.
Pictures of the interior, so you can see how small it is. It is indeed a great addition to the suburb of Fullarton!
Overall, it was an enjoyable meal. We enjoyed the lamb and the laksa, although it could do with a bit more flavour. Our friends did not enjoy the beef as it was tough and a bit dry. Opt for the lamb! 🙂
I am looking forward to trying more dishes. We would grade this place a B minus. Service can be improved from the beginning when we enter into the restaurant. Service was also average during the meal – they never gave us our table water, but we noticed every other table had a bottle of water. However, the man who helped clear our table was very friendly and welcoming.
A great addition and welcomed addition to Fullarton and takeaway available as well.
