Plain and simple, cooking isn’t for everyone. But if you’re trying to resist another night of takeout, Omsom makes it easy to create restaurant-quality meals at home in under 30 minutes with its Asian dish starters. Even non-chefs will love it.

Think of Omsom starters like a shortcut: They combine all the sauces, aromatics and seasonings you need to make a specific Asian dish, recipe provided. Just add your choice of protein and veggies.

The starters make dishes from both East Asian and Southeast Asian cuisines, like Korean Spicy Bulgogi, Vietnamese Lemongrass BBQ, Japanese Yuzu Misoyaki and more.

Sisters and co-founders of Omsom, Vanessa and Kim Pham, are the daughters of Vietnamese refugees. The sisters grew up watching their mother cook everything from scratch.

“We started Omsom to bring proud, loud Asian flavors to your fingertips any day of the week, sitting in your pantry right between the tomato sauce and olive oil. No more diluted dishes, no more cultural compromise. Real deal Asian cuisine and communities are too damn delicious to deny,” the brand’s website reads.

Omsom is available exclusively online, and orders arrive in about a week. The dish starters cost $12 for a pack of three, with each pack making two to three servings. That nets out to $4 per starter and about $2 per serving. Not only do the starters contain quality ingredients, but they’re a great bang for your buck.

Nonetheless, if you can’t choose just one, you don’t have to. You can also get the East Asian Omsom Sampler Kit and the Southeast Asian Omsom Sampler Kit for $29 each, which both include three types of dish starters (there’s six total starters in each sampler). Or try it all and get the Omsom bundle with every single one of Omsom’s offerings for $55.
