Jom Corner – Melbourne – easy chicken rice lunch in Melbourne’s central business district

Nestled in Melbourne’s central business district just off Bourke Street in one of its many arcades, the Kmart Centre, is Jom Corner. It’s a cafe/restaurant that opened its door in 2021. I came looking for interesting food during my lunch session and ended up plenty happy feasting on Jom Corner’s chicken rice.

Jom Corner represents Malaysian cuisine and has a great menu to boot. It has butter or peanut butter toast for AUD$4.90, Kaya toast for $4.90, curry puff for $4.50, curry chicken noodle for $13.99 and various lunch sets such as their rolled rice noodles and teh tarik for $13.99, bak kut teh and teh tarik for $15.99 and nasi lemak and teh tarik for $13.00. The menu is simple and focused on key dishes.

I went with their signature Jom’s Chicken Rice for $13.99 which had fragrant chicken rice, bean shoots, cucumber, chili sauce and some tender chicken topped with their special spicy sauce. The dish smelt and tasted great. It was an easy eat with just a spoon in hand. It didn’t come with chicken soup, but I didn’t mind because the rest of the dish was excellent.

The interior of the restaurant is small, yet cosy. It caters for smaller crowds and is perfect for that quick tuck in lunch if you are in the city. My plate of food was brought to my table.

Jom Corner is located within one of Melbourne’s many shopping arcades at 222 Bourke Street, Melbourne VIC 3000:
