Yes yes it’s finally an update from me. I was away in Perth for a while to visit the Mr’s family and then arrived back in Melbourne for one night. The next day I jetted off to Sydney for work. It has been a few hectic weeks and now I made the time to blog.

WOOHOO I finally going to blog about one of my favourite restaurants in Melbourne YES it’s Omah’s. This was my 4th visit when my friend Miss A was visiting Melbourne. Miss A is a big fan of crabs so we had to take her to Omah’s. Omah’s have a fixed price of crabs of $45.9 (increased from $40 previously). As usual every time before I visit I make sure to pre-order the crabs at least a day in advance. This time it was no different. Funnily there wasn’t any crabs when we arrived even when we pre-ordered. But luckily they made a trip within 15 minutes and came back to us with a crab yay! Last night there was a big order of 25 crabs the night before which is why the missing crabs

My number one choice for crab is definitely the Salted egg crab. I have previously tried black pepper and chilli crab which were both fantastic but nothing hit my mouth with drooling saliva like the salted egg crab. I think it has happy crack :D

Coconut rice. Wish they have chicken rice option but loved their coconut rice. Super fragrant.

Next we ordered loh bak, minced chicken marinated with 5-spice, fried in bean curd skin. Miss A is having the Loh Bak for the first time and fell in love with it. I gave Omah’s version a thumbs up too it was very crispy and tasted delicious. I tried quite a few versions of loh Bak and now Omah’s tops it :)

Ikan bakar fish – mild spiced fish with onion and orka on banana leaf. We make sure to order a more mild fish dish this time. Previously we tried the nyonya fish and it was the so spicy. This fish suited my spice palette more.

Belacan Veggies – watercress. I love their Belacan version, it’s mixed with prawns. No matter where I go I still like Omah’s belacan watercress the most :)

One small negative is we couldn’t takeaway our food! I wouldn’t mind paying a takeaway fee on top – oh well! Side note Omah’s in Port Melbourne is Opal’s now. There is also some gluten free options of the menu which is handy :)
