Ishi Mura
PoMo (former Paradiz Centre), 1 Selegie Road
Level 3

After reading that the former Paradiz Centre has undergone a $20 million facelift some time ago, I've been wanting to check out the Japanese-themed foodcourt that is one of the new highlights of the mall. When Xin Hui, Hui Yi and I were there in the late afternoon, the place was completely deserted. The exterior of the foodcourt was nicely decorated and looked pretty much like a Japanese restaurant.

I ordered the Ebi Okonomiyaki ($4.90) without mayonnaise which was neatly presented on a heavy grill pan with seaweed and bonito flakes topped on it. However, after the 1st few bites, I realised that this was the mixed seafood okonomiyaki instead as scallops and octopus were also included. Nevertheless, I rather liked it as there was plenty of cabbage and seafood. The teriyaki sauce was a tad too salty though.

Xin Hui ordered the Seafood Omu Rice ($5.90) instead of the pasta. If you want to change the pasta sauce from cream to tomato (or vice versa, depending on the menu), there's an additional charge of $0.50 which I think is ridiculous. I don't understand the logic behind it as it is not as if we are requesting for 2 different sauces, but just a substitute.

Hui Yi didn't really enjoy the Salmon Omu Rice ($5.90). I think the proportion of rice to salmon was too skewed as it seemed that too much rice was given.

I would say that the food will not blow your mind away but neither will it blow your pocket. With such reasonable prices, this is definitely good value for money as we walked away feeling full to the brim. However, I wonder how long will PoMo last as the human traffic seems really low. With another branch in Northpoint, I don't see myself returning here anytime soon.

In ancient Greek mythology, sirens are creatures which have the body of a bird and the head of a woman. They have such sweet voices that sailors who heard their songs were lured into grounding their boats on the rocks on which the nymphs sang.

To me, food are like the sirens in so many ways. Intoxicating, wonderful, beautiful and yet, so very deadly if you let them get the better of you. Food is a big part of my life and it’s meant to be appreciated and savored slowly. I admit that I am extremely particular about what I eat. If it’s not something I want to put in my body, I’d rather not eat. Some people eat to live while others live to eat. I’ve yet to discover which side of the camp I’m in… What about you?

I hope that you will enjoy reading about my food adventures as much as I like writing them. And many thanks to my family and friends who always wait patiently for me to take photos before digging in!
