PoMo (former Paradiz Centre), 1 Selegie Road
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.
