Hot Matcha Latte 4/5
As usual I am early for my dinner appointment so I started with a glass of Hot Matcha Latte ($6.80). Using premium Matcha and delicately steamed with milk, the rich and smooth matcha latte warming up the appetite for the dinner to come.
Miam Miam Spaghetti 4/5
Dinner started with a huge plate of Miam Miam Spaghetti ($15.80) that is served with sauteed with frankfurters, tomatoes, baby spinach, egg plant, bacon and a soft boiled egg. The portion is though for one is good for two. I prefer my pasta to be creamy so I didn't think I would like it until I have a taste of it. We were advice to break the egg and mixed it together with the whole plate. Tossed together with french butter, shayu and a secret broth the plate of pasta definitely won be over.
Riz Noir Squid Ink Rice 3.8/5
We usually have squid ink pasta and I like the interesting twist of the Riz Nori Squid Ink Rice ($16.50). The delish squid ink rice with assorted seafood is topped with an omu egg. My only disappointment is the omu egg that came across as a tad flat unlike those Japanese type that is thick and runny.
Riz Au Curry 3.8/5
The other rice item on the menu is the Riz Au Curry ($15.50). The baked rice with homemade Japanese curry, pork frankfurters, broccoli, cheese and egg was bursting with strong flavours. It is a beautiful dish but I prefer it to be a hint more spicy.
Souffle De Nuage 4/5
The Souffle De Nuage ($15.50) is probably one of the most unique dish I have tired this year. Diving the spoon through the airy egg and cheese cloud , lands into a sea of red rice grains field. The home style fresh tomato sauteed rice was fragrant and so interesting that you just need to give it a try.
Chocolate Molleaux 3/5
While the Chocolate Molleaux ($9.80) was moist but I was a bit disappointed that it does not have that lava flowing effect that will get everyone excited before digging in.
Caramelised Banana Pancake 4.2/5
The Caramelised Banana Pancake ($12.80) is served with bananas cooked in a deep golden caramel sauce and topped with premium gelato vanilla soft serve with toasted almond nibs. I was actually quite puzzle because the texture was closer to that of a cake than a pancake. The pancake was indeed light and airy. Seldom will I go back for more and that says a lot.
Hot Coffee 4/5
If you are coffee lover, do try their Hot Coffee ($5.20) brewed the old fashioned way, hand dripped from carefully selected 100% Arabica Beans.
Valrhona Chocolate Souffle 3.5/5
If you want to try the Valrhona Chocolate Souffle ($13.80), do prepare to wait for a good 20 minutes or more as it is freshly baked a la minute. The perfectly raised souffle was topped with a heavenly decadent melted chocolate to enrich the moment of ecstasy.
Overall the food at Miam Miam is pretty good and affordable, the highest price item is at $18.80. Patrons can also look forward to new surprises every six to nine months. The expanding brand will be opening their 2nd outlet at Westgate in end Decemeber 2013. The team is a also planning global expansion into Philippines, Indonesia, Cambodia, China, US, Canada, other parts of Malaysia and Australia with existing presence in Singapore, Melbourne and Penang.
