Food Review - Miam Miam (Westgate)

Thursday, May 15, 2014

You know, most of the time, you would have an inkling of what the cafe serves or what it is like with just their name. For example, if you hear Waffleslayers - waffles. If you hear DOC - good coffee. But there's this one place where you will never make out what they actually are with just their name, and will even make you feel irritated.

"Let's go Miam Miam!"

"Yum yum? You want yummy food?"

"No, Miam Miam!"

"Huh? Your hand niam niam (Hokkien for sticky) is it? Go wash hand lor."


"MIAM MIAM MIAM MIAM NI LAN LA!" (For those who don't know what this means, ask someone who is proficient in Hokkien to explain to you)


Hot Cafe Au Lait ($5.80)

Hot Cafe Au Lait

I love the coffee. Very fragrant and rich. The milk is creamy enough to mask the bitter taste of coffee, don't even need to add sugar for it to be nice! The handle feels like it is gonna break anytime soon though, so treat it gently okay?

Miam Miam Spaghetti ($15.80)

Miam Miam Spaghetti

This is one of their signature dish called the Miam Miam Spaghetti, which is sauteed with frankfurters, tomatoes, baby spinach and bacon. It is also tossed with french butter, their secret broth and shoyu. It tasted okay, nothing phenomenal. 

One thing they can definitely improve on is the plating. It just looked like they just throw all their ingredients onto the plate. The frankfurt is also too little, just two small bits in this large plate of spaghetti. I wouldn't mind if they serve me the "secret broth" in a small bowl as well, because honestly, I couldn't taste any special secret with this spaghetti. It's okay, but for $15.80, as well as being one of their signature dish, I expected more.

Riz Au Curry ($15.50)

Riz Au Curry

This is baked rice with homemade Japanese curry, pork frankfurters, broccoli cheese and egg. As we all know, Japanese curry is normally on the sweeter side. Together with the cheese, the whole dish will make you "gelat" in just a few mouthfuls. 

Valrhona Chocolate Souffle ($13.80)

This is AWESOME when you put that warm, rich melted goodness inside your mouth... for the first time. After that, the moist texture of the souffle gets to you and becomes overwhelmingly "gelat". Just imagine someone soaking a cupcake inside water and asking you to eat it. YES, that kind of feeling. So, this is definitely a dish you must share with your friends. 

Overall, Miam Miam is just like another Hoshino, serving almost the same kind of Japanese food, just that Miam Miam is a French+Japanese fusion. It is more well-known for its dessert rather than the main dishes, so I will need to go there again for their desserts to have a fairer evaluation. But for now, judging by the food that I ate, Miam Miam gets:
