Food Hunting at [Oh My Bacon! a.k.a. OMB!]

Here's another food hunting blog post! Recently, I came across this bacon-themed cafe online and found it pretty interesting. The thing about themed cafes is that more often than not people will not visit them twice, not just because cafes are generally pricey, but who would want to eat appetizers, main course and dessert made of the same main ingredient over and over again? Unless you have some inexplicable fondness towards it, if not, it's more of a one-time off thing.

My sister, Bii and I decided to pay this rather new bacon-inspired cafe -Oh My Bacon! (a.k.a. OMB!) at Dunlop Street a visit and try their bacons out! If you are a bacon-lover like Bii, be sure to visit them at least once!

How to get there

The nearest MRT station from OMB! is Bugis MRT station. Once you get out of the MRT station, you will have to walk for 7-10 minutes via Rochor Road and Jalan Besar to arrive at the rows of shop houses along Dunlop Street. The entrance of OMB! is not fancy, so you will have to sharpen your eyes and spot it among the shops. 

For taxi-takers, here you go:
7 Dunlop Street,
Singapore 209337.

To avoid disappointment, their opening hours are as follows:
Tue-Fri: 12pm-10pm
Sat-Sun: 10am-10pm
(closed on Mondays)

Bacon lover? Fred not, bacon-inspired merchandises are sold here too!
This cafe has a minimalistic interior - clean white walls with positive quotes everywhere! The cafe is pretty spacious as compared to others, perfect for group gatherings! The creative fonts on the walls and hanging canvas painting inject a strong vibrant and happy vibe to the atmosphere!

What did we eat

Table top
First of all, skim through the menu, pick your favourites (do not hesitate to approach the staff for recommendations) and proceed to the counter to order! They have a pay-before-you-eat policy, so you queue and pay at the counter before your food comes!

Now, onto the food!

Based on recommendations, we ordered:

The NPH Platter 
Bacon and Egg Cup
The Bacon Bomb
English breakfast with waffles
How is that a complete meal without dessert?

Bacon brownie and bacon ice-cream
That was our first time eating such a bacon-heavy meal! I would say it's worth the try because their bacon sets were really splendid! Never thought bacon could be eaten in so many ways (can be pretty salty if you are not used to salty food)! We would highly recommend the NPH Platter and Bacon Bomb. The Bacon brownie and ice-cream sounded ridiculous but hey it tasted not bad (I feel the brownie was a bit too cakey but the ice-cream was good). 

Overall verdict: 6.5/10
