I generally have good luck when picking cafes to eat at, but today my luck ran out.... kinda knew there was something wrong when the waitress can't compliment the dish I ordered.... should just have stuck with the usual...
I discovered this place with a friend when we were at Westgate.... easily the best pasta at Miam is the Modern Yaki pasta.... but hey... sad, it is not pork free .... ( I am on a strict non-pork diet... cos pork gives me massive indigestion... this is very very sad.. but it has come to this....:( )
For a Japanese interpretation European dish, the Modern Yaki is pretty good, very tasty, filling, Good sauce, which has a base of Pork.. yeah.. it is a kind of tonkatsu sauce. very savory.... nice taste mixture with the sauce, seaweed, seaseme, benito flakes, japanese mayo and a light egg. ... which makes it a bit creamy...
Today I got their squid ink pasta, ( BAD CHOICE)...I mean I like al dente pasta... but honestly, today's pasta was a tad too hard.. could have spent a bit more time boiling in the water... Also the biggest problem with the squid ink sauce was that it was bad squid ink sauce... honestly man... the very very first squid ink sauce I have ever tasted which I thought was the best was in a restaurant in Venice... (yes, the city with canals) but the one at Miam was frankly, really fishy... I THINK it was saved in part by the wasabi oil, which made the pasta a bit spicy, which is okay, and masked a bit of the fishiness, but hey, it IS BAD squid ink sauce pasta... Also the pasta was a bit short on ingredients.. I mean.. there were a few rings of squid (which were hard) and a few cherry tomatoes... this was rather sad... perhaps more toppings of seafood would have helped the dish.
I in fact think that the squid ink pasta at Saizariya is a tad better... this is saying a lot...(since great food dun come out of Saizariya ... ppls like me go there cos it is great in terms of $$.)
BUT, I must say... I probably unfairly judge the squid ink, cos man... NO ONE can beat the Italians at cooking Italian food.
Now the souffles.. that's what Maim is really good at I think...
Anyway I had the valrhona souffle... very very nice.... nice slight crispy souffle crust, and very creamy on the inside.. I mean I have always liked Valrhona chocs... possibly the best french brand for dark chocs... I used to go to Taka back when the brand sold the dark choc bars in SG.... I mean it was expensive and I was a student then too .. but worth it....
so pasta bad, souffle desert good.... all in all I will not go there again for food.. maybe desert..
Bear in mind, that I ate all of it when I was good and hungry.... generally when I am hungry.. I am pretty forgiving about taste..... so only go for desert and tea... and unless the pasta is Modern Yaki or somthing similar.. otherwise can't reccomend.... stick with souffles.
I noticed no one else ordered the squid ink... maybe everyone has same idea...
There are no lack of choices at Miam Miam with home made spaghettis, French bisques and sandwiches, pancakes, soufflés, parfaits, rice and a selection of matcha drinks and coffee. Every food dish is made from scratch, therefore you will need to wait a little while from between 15 to 30 minutes for your food.
The ambience and atmosphere at the Westgate outlet are just Plain Amazing. Love the choice of lightings and colourful selection of chairs and plush sofa corner seats that are comfy!
