Hello Fellow Nom Seekers!

I feel uncharacteristically at peace with myself and with the universe after a meal at Om.  Perhaps it is the inspirational quote on their wall:

Or perhaps it's their light yet nourishing vegetarian lunch for $6.50.  Yes, $6.50!  Where can you get a meal in the CBD for that?  So maybe I'm lulled into a sense of serenity by the price point.  Also I am being fed a vegetarian meal that actually tastes good.  Perhaps the all-you-can-eat chappatis tipped me into a carb-cocoon afterglow?  Whatever the reason, I leave Om feeling I can do and should do amazing things because you get out of life what you put in.  

To elaborate on what you get for your $6.50:  pilau of some sort, dhal, vegetarian curry, a little dollop of pickles and chappatis.  Oh, the chappatis!  They were crispy and airy with just a smidge of butter.  A lady walked around with a basketful of them and tops up your plate when you run low.  I could just feast on the chappatis alone.

A tip:  Although the address for Om is on Collins St, the entrance is actually in an arcade off Swanston.  Well worth keeping your eyes peeled for it.
