Sesame Chicken Sandwich, $9.50
Onaka has an extensive menu with meals of the day options. We had the sesame chicken sandwich which tasted clean and fresh with all the vegetables (cucumber, tomatoes and onions). I was very impressed with the white sesame sauce (only found out from the menu later). My friend and I love the Japanese touch in its taste and thought the white sesame sauce was mayo and sesame oil initially. Hmm, wonder if they sell it??
Hummus and avocado Sandwich, $8.90 (photo taken by guest photographer, XM)
This goodness and vitamins loaded sandwich came with alfafa sprouts, cucumber, tomatoes and lettuce did not sound all too appealing at first. However, I totally enjoyed it! I wonder if it is the ambience of this cosy cafe or the way Onaka combined the ingredients. Everything tasted just so well-balanced. For people who are chickpeas phobic / vegeatables phobic, this is one good sandwich to start!
Green Tea Gelato, $4
Onaka currently has an opening promotion (tea/gelato for each meal ordered, limited period, while stocks last), we tried the ginger tea ($3.50) and green tea gelato ($4) for FREE! Ginger tea was strong enough for me and the faint scent of gula melaka can be quite addictive. The texture of gelato was rather grainy and nice! I always like smooth gelato and didn't realise till today that grainy texture can be very naturally yummy as well!
Onaka is a quiet and charming cafe. Its prices are reasonable (no service charge, no GST). The staff were pleasant and helpful. There is a small corner which sells organic product and I got a bottle of Meridian organic peanut butter for just $6. Onaka is beyond Eden.
