I have always walked past Ohayo Mama San, located at [email protected], thinking how pretty the restaurant was, but had never ventured in.
Ohayo Mama San is decorated in pastel coral and blue notes, with intricate designs on the walls.
We were first served the Afternoon Tea Party Set (S$38++), which consists of six different small bites, which may be subjected to seasonal changes. This was served alongside a pot of TWG Tea, which was a fragrant green tea infused with floral notes.
After trying all six, these two small bites were our favourites— the Crispy Crabmeat Basket and the Mini Wagyu Burger. Clearly, you can tell that we are savoury girls.
The Crispy Crabmeat Basket had an ice-cream cone-esque outer covering, which was savoury, and the inner crab mayonnaise mix with cucumber was crunchy and sweet. Overall, the bite was extremely refreshing and I wished there were more of this in the high tea. Unfortunately, there were only two pieces— one piece for me, and one for my companion.
Ohayo Mama San’s Mini Wagyu Burger was extremely delectable too. The beef melts in your mouth, and it was of good quality. The crisp lettuce cuts through the little grease the patty has, which makes for a well-rounded bite.
It had a wanton-like skin shell with seaweed and was crispy with every bite. People who enjoy seaweed chicken will enjoy this dish too. The green tobiko was slightly salty and added texture when bitten into, as it bursts in your mouth.
Next, we had Ohayo Mama San’s Fish Kebab with Baked Sweet Potato (S$20) which consisted of six chunky salmon pieces, with tomatoes and greens skewered together. The salmon oil is then allowed to drip onto the baked sweet potatoes, giving it a nice greasy finish.
The salmon itself is oily, fatty and soft. When I bit into it, I was pleasantly surprised as it was so juicy and luxurious, and came with a touch of charred flavour too. My companion and I greatly enjoyed this dish.
Lastly, we were given the opportunity to try a new menu that will only be coming out mid-June 2022: Boss Salmon Sushi Party Platter (S$46). This consists of Salmon Aburi Mentai Roll, Riceless Avocado Sushi Roll, Crispy Salmon Gunkan, Salmon Nigiri and Salmon Aburi Mentai.
This clearly had an abundance of salmon, and being salmon lovers, it was an enjoyable experience.
Our favourite was the Crispy Salmon Gunkan. It had tempura flakes on top of salmon bits, which were slightly spicy. The sweet salmon cubes held the sushi together, and it was an enjoyable piece of sushi.
All in all, Ohayo Mama San was a really great experience as I got to try so many variations of salmon, avocado and rice. I would definitely come back again for the Fish Kebab with Baked Sweet Potato and the Afternoon Tea Party Set, especially for special occasions as the items are on the pricier end.
