Nomu Nomu Cafe located at the fourth floor of Westgate shopping mall offers modern Japanese inspired cuisine bringing a different dining experience to the heartland mall.
Seaweed Chikin Wings 3/5
The Seaweed Chikin Wings ($7.90) is deep fried and served with seaweed mayonnaise. Yes it is spelt as chikin and not chicken in the menu. Appearance wise it definitely didn't look anything like it and it looked dry. The crispy chicken wings actuall tasted quite nice but then I still prefer my wings that is plump and juicy.
Winter Soba 3.5/5
This is quite an refreshing and interesting dish. The Winter Soba ($12.90) comes with thin slices of grilled pork, cabbage, soft boiled egg and shiitake mushroom. If you prefer something light, this will be perfect for the day with the shoyu based broth.
Spicy Goma Soba 3/5
Another modern take is the Spicy Goma Soba ($12.90) served with grilled chicken. I like goma sauce with salad but I have yet to try it with soba. It actually tasted quite nice with hints of spiciness. The goma sauce gave the noodles a nice sesame aroma too.
Charcoal Roasted Coffee 3.5/5
Lastly I ended my lunch with the Charcoal Roasted Coffee ($5). A delicious dark roasted coffee with a strong bold character, a unique result from roasting with Japanese binchotan or white charcoal. Smooth finish with hints of citrus fruit notes.
Overall I think Nomu Nomu Cafe brought some interesting modern Japanese inspired dishes to the locals. However I thought the food was decent but lacking the wow factor. A place for a quick and affordable meal if you want to beat the long queues at other more popular restaurants.
