Om Nom Dessert Bar

If you are a dessert enthusiasts you may have heard of Om Nom. Christy Tania who heads up the restaurant located in the Adelphi Hotel, was dubbed the female Zumbo in recent episodes of Masterchef. So naturally I came here for nothing, but dessert.

I came with a few friends after dinner, this was prior to the Masterchef exposure, to celebrate F's birthday in advance. I was quite surprise to see how full it was for 9.30pm on a Saturday night.

We got Raspberry Fields which was a combination of lychee sorbet, raspberries and panna cotta. I loved the concept and the design. The lychee sorbet was refreshing, but there wasn't a lot on the plate. However what was there was done well.

Apple Sphere had flavours of ginger, lemongrass, vanilla and white chocolate laced shell on a bed of crushed cookies. Very bold combination of flavours.

Banana Flambe is a banana flamed over cinnamon and rum. Served with soft chocolate sponge with smooth white chocolate ice cream on the side. I loved the effect but I don't think I'll order it again, if you leave the banana in the flame for too long, the flavour becomes very smokey to the point it's almost bitter.


Fruits of the forest was a giant meringue filled with raspberry and blueberry sorbet. This was probably the least original idea but I enjoyed this one the most. The presentation was beautiful with the pop of purple from the flower.


Basil Garden had a delicious bed of chocolate soil, vanilla served with honey, basil ice cream in a chocolate pot. If you like basil, you will enjoy this one. If not the flavours might be a bit strange. 



Overall 17.5/20 I had a very enjoyable experience. It was art on a plate and you can appreciate the time and work that went into each dessert. I just wish some of them was a little bigger. This really takes the art of desserts to the next level.
