Soul Food, Greek Style at Meraki by Oh My Greek in SM Mall of Asia

Fresh and healthy Greek cuisine, elevated to the next level. That's right. And you'll find it here at the newest dining concept from Visum Ventures, Inc. at Meraki by Oh My Greek...

Visum Ventures, Inc. unveils yet another innovating dining concept with its sumptuous array of Greek dishes at Meraki by Oh My Greek. Now open at Ikea along Seashell Lane in Mall of Asia, the new concept highlights the Greek specialty dishes of Oh My Greek with a more complex yet delicate play on deeper, richer and nuanced notes. It's Greek cuisine leveled up with an elegant touch of soul. Curious? Then, read on...

The success of Oh My Greek reveals what we already know, diners appreciate freshness, quality and authenticity in a cluttered culinary landscape of countless options. An aggressive expansion led to the continuous roll-out of new branches at the height of the pandemic, and more diners are increasingly aware of the brand. But Visum Ventures, Inc. didn't stop there, creating a new brand with the DNA of Oh My Greek at its core with Meraki by Oh My Greek (for more Oh My Greek, see my earlier post, Breakfast, Brunch, Lunch, Tapas, Cocktails, Dinner and Dessert All in One Strip: Oh My Greek, Zig Healthy Made Happy and Koomi Now Open at Greenhills Promenade).

The passion for fresh and healthy dishes comes through at this newest concept from Visum Ventures, Inc. in a clean and modern layout. Located right next to Santé by Zig, another creative spin on their Zig Healthy Made Happy brand (see more on my previous post here at Raise a Toast to Good Health at Sante by Zig, Now Open at Ikea in SM Mall of Asia), the warm palette of understated hues at Meraki by Oh My Greek are both welcoming and comforting. Inspired by the Greek word for doing something with passion, creativity, love and soul, Meraki by Oh My Greek transforms the casual vibe of the original concept with a more refined and elegant twist while staying true to fresh and authentic Greek cuisine. 

The open kitchen layout at Meraki by Oh My Greek provides diners a glimpse of the magic behind each dish served at the latest concept from Visum Ventures, Inc. The kitchen is shared with Santé by Zig located beside Meraki by Oh My Greek, and you can also order from their menu. 

If you prefer to dine al fresco, Meraki by Oh My Greek has that option as well. In this new normal, dining al fresco is a much appreciated feature. Once seated, rediscover Greek cuisine in a refreshing new light at Meraki by Oh My Greek...

....starting with the hearty and comforting Beef Moussaka (P 460) with savory beef, potatoes and eggplant. 

A traditional Greek dish, Meraki by Oh My Greek recreates this classic with a rustic flair with layers of flavors from the beef, potatoes and eggplant. Each spoonful warms the palate, releasing bold and fresh savory notes. You'll find the best-selling gyros from Oh My Greek at Meraki as well, but you you may want to try the sumptuous mains... the Lemon Chicken (P 520), pan-seared chicken with potatoes, oregano, lemon and fresh thyme. The delicate flavors of the juicy chicken are enhanced by the bright and zesty hints of lemon with the subtle herbal notes from the oregano and thyme completing the dish. It's a light yet satisfying meal, prepared exceptionally well. 

For those looking for seafood, the Salmon Tzatziki (P 640) with asparagus, lemon and fresh thyme is recommended. Pan-seared, the buttery richness of the premium slab of salmon is enjoyed with each bite followed by hints of lemon and thyme for that contrasting balance. The freshness and quality of each component, from the asparagus to the salmon, is consistent with the culinary style you'd expect from Oh My Greek. Freshness and flavor come together in a perfectly executed dish using the finest ingredients at Meraki by Oh My Greek.

For those with heftier appetites, the tender Filet Mignon (P 730) should hit the spot. The tempting slab of beef tenderloin is laid on silky smooth pomme purée topped with peppercorn sauce with a side of tapenade and fresh rosemary.

Grilled to your preferred doneness, each slice and bite delivers bold beefy flavors complemented by the buttery pomme purée and the subtle sharpness of the peppercorn sauce. 

Chicken, beef or seafood, the savory mains at Meraki by Oh My Greek present a wide range of options. Meraki by Oh My Greek also offers Lamb Chops, Salmon & Feta Linguine and Pork, Chicken or Halloumi (vegetarian) Gyros (see full menu below). Passionate with their unique and healthy offerings, the new savory mains reflects a modern approach to comforting yet healthy dining. And there's a whole lot of soul in the comforting dishes at Meraki by Oh My Greek. 

To cap your meal at Meraki by Oh My Greek, indulge with dessert offerings like the sweet and tart Apple Crumble (P 375) with green apples, cranberries and almond dacquoise topped with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream. The subtle tartness of the green apples and cranberries tease the palate, smoothened by vanilla bean ice cream pairing well with their specialty Glikos Greek Coffee.

Love chocolate? The Chocolate Lava Cake (P 445) is guaranteed to satisfy any chocolate craving. Almond dacquoise, vanilla bean ice cream and dehydrated strawberries complete the decadent play on flavors and textures.

For me, there's one dessert that ends any visit to Meraki by Oh My Greek on a lavish sweet note and that's the Yaoriti (P 165) with natural Greek yogurt, honey and walnuts. Simple, uncomplicated yet indulgent. A quick scan at the menu reveals a wide range of options from breakfast to mains, desserts, beverages and Glikos Greek coffee to tapas and cocktails.  

We all love the casual vibe at Oh My Greek. Yet Meraki by Oh My Greek is different and similar at the same time. It's the subdued elegance of the place that makes dining at Meraki by Oh My Greek special...

...and its selection of sumptuous and healthy Greek-inspired offerings that makes this newest concept from Visum Ventures, Inc. a welcome addition to the culinary scene that's bouncing back from the quarantine experience.
