Ooh Mami opens in Bulimba
Alicia Moo | On 23, Aug 2014
There is nothing more comforting than a home cooked meal at the end of a long day. So to satisfy hungry tummies, a new canteen named Ooh Mami swings open its doors.
The new eatery, positioned on a corner block off Oxford Street in leafy Bulimba takes cues from â€˜homestyle cookingâ€™ and meals prepared by â€˜mamiâ€™.Â Its name alsoÂ plays on the word â€˜umamiâ€™ – the often forgottenÂ basic taste alongside salty, sour, sweet and bitter.
Ooh Mamiâ€™s founders, two brothers and their best mate, hail from Sydney and love nothing more than a home-cooked meal made with fresh ingredientsÂ andÂ minimalÂ fuss. Theyâ€™ve designed the new dining spot to serve busy locals, who are lookingfor a quick, yet nutritious feed that tastes just like it would at home.
For Ooh Mami, they have drawn inspiration from their own mother to create a place that is reminiscent of traditional family life â€“ even the kitchen is exposed to customers, so that it really feels like you have arrived home to a hearty meal. â€œOur motherâ€™s love goes into each and every one of her recipes, so there is nothing as loving as a home cooked meal,â€ said Mohammed Khcheiche, one of the founders.
â€œOur story, like our food, will give you a nice feeling and remind you of the meals your mother used to cook at home,â€ he said. â€œWe wanted home-style cooking to be more accessible to people who have limited time to prepare weeknight meals, but are looking for a healthy option â€“ either to takeaway or dine-in.â€
With hearty salads such as quinoa and pumpkin and ‘Mami’s square meals’ ranging from fresh salmon to slow braised beef served with a Memphis slaw this canteen is far beyond the old school yard.
Ooh Mami is all about family,health and home and with these three principles you are sure to have a good time.
