OOMA Japanese Rice Bar is a bold Japanese restaurant concept by Chef Bruce Ricketts of Mecha Uma with The Moment Group. It aims to be an affordable Japanese comfort food place (at less than P500/dish), featuring intense flavors that Pinoys will love and, of course, unlimited rice!
The name is a play on Uma, which means "good". The use of the O's is meant to represent their "orgasmically" good food.
There have been talks that this is just a commercialized fast food version of Sensei Sushi, or a Hi-Lo concept strategy for Mecha Uma. Read on to see what we think of Ooma...
