Miam Miam 23/12/2013 Bugis, Cafe, French, Fusion, Japanese ‘Miam’ is a French slang for ‘yum’, thus Miam Miam translates into something like yum yum. A quick look at their open kitchen tells us that everything is prepared fresh. We learnt from them that all their chefs were trained to follow a disciplined formula to ensure consistent taste and speed. It’s a Japanese thing here and hence the whole French-Japanese fusion. For example, this portion of spaghetti was cooked for exactly 7.5 minutes and the result was a just-nice texture. Spread the egg in for the extra oomph. My favourite dish was made up with a heap of ingredients – Japanese curry, pork frankfurters, broccoli, cheese, egg and rice. Carbs at its best. Another favourite. Though it’s a simple dish like omu (black) rice, the rich flavours struck an instant impression. I reckon that the Hokkaido imported squid ink powder does play a part. A popular dish with a fluffy crown of egg and cheese, and tomato rice beneath. I’m not a big fan of the airy and bubbly texture though. While all their savoury mains were great, I feel that their desserts do have room for improvement. Pancake is a tad hard and dry. Chocolate lava cake which a centre that doesn’t flow. Soufflés were the best bet among the desserts, but my photo is a lousy interpretation ’cause I left them for too long and their tops sank. Made from Grade 1 matcha, the latte caught my fancy. I asked for no sugar/syrup but was told that it was already premixed. But thankfully it didn’t turns out diabetic.
