A couple of weeks ago, I have started a new term in a new department, which is pretty enjoyable! Prior to starting, I treated myself to some brunch in Cafe O-Mai, which is a Vietnamese breakfast with Western influenced cafe.
There's plenty of street parking available and it was really convenient! Reading through the menu, I was contemplating between traditional Vietnamese breakfast (pho), banh mi and the usual breakfast options.
Finally, I decided on the 'Aunty Five's claypot baked eggs' over the pork meatballs in rich tomato sauce...

This Aunty Five's claypot baked eggs is certainly not the usual tomato base baked eggs that we can get from other cafe. The eggs were cooked in a base of tamarind sauce, which I think is more of on the sweeter side rather than sour. I love their pork sausage which has a hint of lemongrass and some spiciness from the chilli. Yum!
I was tempted by their sweet corn and zucchini fritters so I ordered one as a side dish.

Hehe! I like their fritter. Crunchy on the edges and flavourful! :)
Well, I downed my food with a cup of flat white, which is pretty good.
Cafe O-Mai is a lovely place, although it can be touch busy and noisy on the weekend. Hope to return one day to try their pho and banh mi!
