Onaka stands for ‘stomach’ in Jap and is short for Optimum Nutrition And Kitchen Arts.
It’s not often I say this but Onaka is a restaurant after my own heart.
Why do I love this place so much? Because it’s exactly how I think eating should be. They have a ‘No White Bread, No White Rice, No White Sugar’ policy and
every plate presented to you is about the texture, the color, the taste,
the presentation backed by a clear understanding of the nutritional
value of the food. The restaurant’s philosophy is all about Conscious Living- a sensible, pragmatic approach to eating. No counting calories, no weighing, nothing. Just beautifully tasty nutritious food, totally nourishing- just how food should be!
Other plus point would be the extremely great service and friendly staff! This is one of the very few restaurants in Singapore that I’d be happy to dine here everyday, all day! Thumbs up for Onaka! I’m in love with the place!
and drinks using all natural ingredients without chemicals, MSG,
transfat, flavouring and artificial additives. (score!) About half of
the menu is also vegetarian and are helpfully marked out for the
customer if they are looking for Gluten Free or vegan options. A quick
scan through the menu made my heart all aflutter- absolutely everything
here was something I would be happy to try. Everything seemed a well
thought out, balanced and nutrient- rich combination!
Totally doesn’t look like watermelon right? It actually tasted fishy as well (though when you bit into it, it still tasted of watermelon) I was so intrigued I had to ask the waiter how it was done. He described the steps and said slow cooking a watermelon makes it look like maguro! It was unique and really novel and worth a try but I’ll likely not reorder this again the next time I go. Nothing against the food, I generally don’t like strong fishy tastes.
