OMG (Wheaton)

 

OMG WEBSITE

Good Morning Gators!

It’s been a while. I had a lot  going on but I’m back. Did you miss me? Of course you did.

Some of you gators may know that I’ve reviewed OMG before.  Mary (the owner) has opened a second location. This spot is a smaller streamlined version right near the train station. It has a scaled back menu tailored to the quick bite crowd. This is probably the shortest review that I’ve done due to the fact that there isn’t a lot to review. A few sandwiches, a few scrambles, and a few extras perfectly suited for the location. It’s another cute spot. Simpler but similar decor to her big sister. The music was of the festive Christmas variety. Humbug

It’s about 6:15am Lets get going

No table service. It’s order at the counter. I was given the 411 by our excellent hostess Larniecia or her alias Dominique. (I failed to ask why).

As per usual Coffee and water. The Coffee was sourced by a local supplier. I Have A Bean Coffee that believes in second chance employment. The Coffee was a medium roast which is my preference. When coffee is roasted medium to medium light you can taste the personality. It was a reasonably strong   8   

First up

Bacon Cornbread Muffin

Good and Corny  with Bacon as advertised. A touch dry but Butter fixed that issue.   8

Lastly and Leastly

Irish Bacon Croissantwich

Some of you Gators know that I am not a big fan of sandwiches for breakfast. Unfortunately this didn’t change my mind. In all fairness to OMG they had the deck stacked against them. It was ok it just didn’t wow me.   I think it needs some sort of unique sauce   6/7   Your milage may vary.

OMG is very cute. It has a style that defies description. it’s sort of 1970’s dark woodish. It is completely devoid of chicken related items   10   Clean neat carpet free. 60’s 70’s easy rock music   9

Yep. Mary wasn’t kidding. There are a lot of new choices. OMG is not your Local Bacon and Eggs Joint. If you want basics go to Mr Allison’s in Arlington Heights. (Get the HAM!) But I digress.

Mary starts the show with Creamsicle Cupcakes! Thanks Mary how sweet! (pun intended)  Delicious Dreamy and Creamy   8   A great start. OH and Coffee   8

My first choice was easy.

Scallops Eggs Benedict

grit cakes, two poached eggs, arugula, sauce maltaise

I love Scallops so this was a natural choice. The Grit Cake was crunchy on the outside and tender on the inside.Could have used a touch of salt   8   Eggy Citrusy goodness  8   The Scallops were over but had a proper sear   7   The Eggs were under   6    Overall a good choice   8

Next the Controversial

DIM SUM

A source of contention between the Chefs and Mary. Mary is For and the Chefs against. When someone orders it they make Mary cook it. I ordered it. She cooked it.

Fluffy and Puffy with a good pork filling. They could use a bit more filling.   A tasty   8

Breakfast Shepherd’s Pie

What’s for Sweets Sami? I asked. Banana Bread French Toast says she. Bad idea me thinks but she is persistent. I tell her that I have been chasing the Banana Bread French Toast Unicorn for a long time. She is un bending. OK bring it on. So she Did. Take a break from this lengthy review and take a look at the rant page to familiarize yourself with my stance on French Toast. Bottom line is that the Banana bread is delish but it wasn’t French Toast. It was grilled Banana Bread.   Good non FT BB   8   You win again Unicorn.

I thought that was it but what would appear? One more dish. The Chef decided to show off a special signature dish that is not on the menu

Corn Bread Chorizo Scrambled Eggs and Guacamole

All of the elements of this dish were good. I feel like it needed something like a Mole Sauce or something to tie it together. It was an   8   With some tweaking this has a 9 possibilities
