Hail the Pasta and Souffle

Another Hoshino? Maybe? Maybe not. For full review and pics visit here

The Miam Miam Spaghetti was our favourite. Like a typical Japanese wafu pasta, the cream is kept to a minimum or literally non existent. But when French butter, onion, shoyu and some secret broth is reduced in a right way and tossed with sausages, spinach and bacon, the dish  ($16.80++)  turned out brilliant, better than it should be for what went into it. 

Interestingly, the Riz Noir ($16.50++) which resembled a Spanish squid ink paella, is made with Hokkaido's top grade ika sumi powder. The grains had a delectable firm chewy bites and garlicky flavour, though the scrambled eggs were far from the soft runny Japanese style omelette. Meanwhile, it was the opposite situation for the Souffle de Nuage ($17.50++); slightly clumpy glutinous rice-like tomato grains that are cleverly masqueraded beneath the golden and cheesy tasting whipped eggs. 

For the sweets, french toasts  ($10.80++) with their irresistible buttery aroma are probably the best morning call one like to receive but these stiff, slightly dry brioche deprived of the moist eggy flavour seems to lack a bit of that charm. Matcha desserts such as matcha parfait  ($11.80++)  or matcha souffle ($11.80++) are made with top grade matcha powder from Japan but unfortunately the taste did not come forth. Stick to the Varlhona chocolate soufflé ($13.80++). It was excellent.

matcha softee

The matcha softee is a bit too bitter to my taste. caramelised bananas pancake with soffte is good must try!

Fixed up feelings

The service there kinda put my dinning appetite off. Maybe I went there where they were not having a good day. Probably the only few service staff that actually greeted you wholeheartedly were the lady handing out menus and checking the number of seats for your party and the filipino staff helping out. The rest seems to give you a sulky nonchalant look. No cutlery was given when the food was served until you ask them for it.

Food was not too bad although the Squid Ink rice was on the oily side. The lobster bisque pasta was not too bad. For me, the salvaging portion was the chocolate souffle.

French cuisine with a twist of Japanese cooking arts

You will be surprise to know that they change their menu every six to nine months, await for new surprises! The reason why dishes takes so long to arrive at your table, is because they cook it on the spot when you order it (literally a la carte). And the highest priced item is only at $18.80!

Some dishes were really good and some has room for improvement. My personal favourites for mains would be Riz Au Curry [$15.50] and Riz Noir Squid Ink Rice [$16.50]. Whereas I think Soufflé De Nuage and Mac & Cheese lack the flavour I was expecting (well it's could individual preference).

Dessert wise, I find that their Famous French Toast [$9.80] is better than the other cafes that served pretty similar ones. I personally love the Soufflé Pancake (not very much with the cream chesse though).
