Om Nom Nom

Although there are just three mains on the regular menu at Om Nom Nom — chili con carne, pita bread stuffed with chili and a chilidog — customers are given the choice of two free toppings and can add additional ones for just an extra ¥50 each. These toppings include guacamole, salsa and sour cream, all of which are handmade in the restaurant, along with (among other things) cheese, olives, jalapenos or corn — there is something for everyone. The chili itself is not insanely spicy, and a selection of hot sauces, ranging from tongue-tinglers to knock-socks-offers, are free to use. The meals are normally sold as sets (lunchtime from ¥750, dinner from ¥1,200) and are very hearty, especially if you choose the chili, as an extra portion of rice is available for free. The set comes with a side of nachos, a salad, a soft drink and a dessert in the evenings, which is often handmade ice-cream. A larger portion of nachos is also available (¥500), or you can opt for the Mega version (¥800), which is big enough to feed a small family but so moreish you just might finish it yourself.

In line with the nationwide state of emergency declared on April 16, the government is strongly requesting that residents stay at home whenever possible and refrain from visiting bars, restaurants, music venues and other public spaces.
