My Soho friends have been raving about the Japanese restaurant Omen to me for a while now. Nestled in on a quiet Thompson street block, this spot is almost hidden away. My meal here was really good, but not cheap. There is a quiet authenticity about this place, which is nice.
A Kampai uni shot ($13), with a quail egg, served in a lemon cup was fantastic. If you are a fan of uni like I am, order one, you'll be happy!
I of course ordered their namesake Omen ($19), homemade udon noodles, served with vegetables, seaweed, sesame seed, and Japanese broth. These noodles had the most perfect delicate texture and consistency, and were very pleasurable. I must say though that $19, seems a bit pricey for just noodles, and I'm still confused how they could charge so much. But, if money is no object, then go for it!
