Experience

I absolutely love everything about this brand. As an Asian-American/Filipino, it's so exciting to see how their translating the no-so-healthy starters so synonymous with Asian cooking for new audiences. My favorite so far is the Yuzu Misoyaki. I got the sampler and am loving trying all of them.

Feedback

I'm not so sure about how sustainable the packaging is? While it is beautiful, I'm trying to be more conscious about what I consume.

I am not a cook...but i want to be! And this makes the creation of delicious + impressive flavors in my kitchen, possible! Especially during the pandemic, I’ve spent so much more ordering food in, and I’m trying to be better about cooking. These liven up my kitchen with its branding AND flavor!

Feedback

I wish these came in jars since i don’t use so much at a time. Only cooking for 1-2 meals at a time!

If you want to cook Asian food but find yourself intimidated by the ingredients lists, Omsom is a great place to start. Easy and really delicious meals - they continue to expand their product line, don’t sleep on this brand. You won’t regret it.

I've been wanting to try Omsom for a while, so I was ecstatic to find their stuff locally at a new independent home goods store in my neighborhood. I got the spicy bulgogi starter pack, which includes three sauce packets and a small booklet of recipes. I followed a recipe on the Omsom site for Korean spicy tofu, and I was incredibly impressed by how well it came out and how fast it was to make.

Pretty expensive and struggled to prepare in a vegetarian friendly manner

I gifted an Omsom sampler to a friend who loves to cook and eat and it was such a hit! The dish starters really do create delicious meals, and this is just such a cool brand -- in terms of its founders, its messaging, etc. -- that I really feel excited about supporting. (Also, the samplers make an amazing gift, because the packaging is so colorful and fun!)

I really really wanted to love this. I thought the yuzu misoyaki was overwhelmingly sweet and the larb just tasted like fish sauce and fell flat. Also, if you have a super sensitive nose or have a poorly ventilated kitchen, the larb/lemongrass starters may not be for you (it tastes ok but very funky smelling).

A+ for home cooks exploring different Asian cuisines, but even if you normally cook things like larb at home (like myself), this is a very quick meal option and cuts down prep time! I would say only the filipino sisig was new for me to cook, but I was familiar with all the other dishes.

Feedback

I do recommend going beyond using the packs and using fresh herbs will always be that cherry on top.

Omsom is unreal... I feel like a professional chef everytime I use one of these flavor packets! If I'm craving a real flavor kick for lunch or dinner. I'll cook with Omsom. The brand has opened me to the world of asian cuisine and I will never turn back. The Larb recipe with lettuce wraps is hands down my favorite. Would highly recommend and think this is a great gift for someone who likes to cook and try new things.
