With Singaporeans everlasting love for Japanese cuisine and Korean Kpop and drama, it’s no surprise that more and more people are venturing into businesses relating to these cultures. Not too long ago, a restaurant serving surprisingly good fusion where Japanese meets Korean was born.
OMOOMODON: The name ‘OMO-OMO‘ stands for ‘OH MY‘ in Korean slang, and the word ‘DON‘ means Bowl in Japanese – together they become ‘OH MY DON‘. What an ingenious business name.
A happy fusion of the two well-loved cuisines and the wide variety of delicious-sounding rice/noodle bowls available on the menu of this eatery will make you go ‘OMO’ indeed.
At OMOOMODON, it all begins with a self-service, digitalised concept (similar to that of Macdonalds) and ends with a tray return system to promote a quick and fuss-free dining experience. OMOOMODON has got 18 signature dons for you to select from if you do not want to make your own.
‘Build My Don‘ price starts from $8. The prices vary with the different ingredients chosen. You will have to choose your base, proteins, garnishes and either soup or sauce when creating your personalised bowl.
Top up an additional $5 for a set which includes a soft drink and a side dish of your choice. Don’t forget to complete your meal with Korean Bingsoo desserts.

This eatery seemed promising, and it certainly didn’t disappoint. The individual items that we had were flavourful enough on their own. If you are looking for an affordable, satisfying meal, this is the place to go. The atmosphere and environment were also pretty chill making our lunch enjoyable. It may be difficult to cater to a large group at times with the many different food dietary requirements, but OMOOMODON has got you covered. This restaurant is halal certified and it has got vegan options as well!
