With my Groupon ending soon, I headed over to Oms/B one day for lunch. I like Japanese rice balls (onigiri) and wanted to try a new place. I've read about Oms/B on Midtown Lunch a few times with mixed reviews. I was still willing to give it go with my own palate.
I arrived at the small storefront with people already in line. However, it moved pretty quickly so I was happy. Although I had some packaged meals in mind, I realized that they were set meals with specific rice balls. Not happy with the option, I ordered a la carte.
I started with the seaweed salad ($2) which was just okay. I didn't expect anything more or less. It was just what I wanted and was very happy with it. Does anyone know where I can get this in bulk? Or how I can make it at home? I really do like seaweed salad a whole lot.
If that wasn't enough, I also ordered some edamame ($2) which was pretty bad. They precook it and store it in enclosed plastic containers. This let to extra steaming and a bad spoiled funk. You know when you leave something wet in a bag for too long? Yeah, same here. I took one bite and spit it right now. Not recommended.
