A Miam Miam experience
If you are a pasta and/or dessert fan, you cannot miss out on giving Miam Miam a try. "Miam Miam" means"Yum Yum" in French, and my tummy certainly had a yummy time when I was there.
The infusion of Japanese flavours into French cuisine (or is it the other way round) promises a gastronomic experience for their customers. And if you love your food cooked on the spot upon ordering, you can be sure Miam Miam will not disappoint as they pride themselves for cooking every dish from scratch, although I must say this may be an issue during peak periods as it may prolong the waiting time for food to be served. However, what's a little bit of waiting for good food?
The man and I visited the Miam Miam outlet at Bugis Junction 2 weeks ago. Perfect day to be dining out since we were on leave and the boy was in school. It has been some time since we were able to "paktor" (means to be on a date); have a meal without rushing through it and simply just hanging out like we used to.
Bugis Junction has changed quite a bit since I last visited, which probably was more than a year or two ago. Miam Miam sits on level 2, right where the glass lifts open to, where BHG used to be. You won't miss it as it is pretty much open concept with some rather retro yet pretty looking furnishing.

We started with some drinks. The man being the coffee lover, and me, a tea lover, it is not hard to guess what we each ordered.
Miam Miam's hand dripped coffee is full bodied with an earthy flavor, and having it with ice made it a nice beverage to go with the warm desserts such as the french toast served.
I picked their hot matcha which is made with the highest quality matcha which explains the intensed flavor. I thought it was nice to help wash down the food we have tasted.

Moving on to the food, we managed to try quite a bit of what was on Miam Miam's menu that included the Miam Miam Spaghetti, Souffle de Nuage, Riz Au Curry, Riz Noir Squid Ink Rice, Chicken Teriyaki Spaghetti and Carbonara.
So much to eat yet hard to resist especially when I am a huge carbo(hydrates) fan.
|Riz Au Curry - $15.50|
This is really baked Japanese curry rice with egg and frankfurter. I have always loved Japanese curry, so this to me is comforting. I would loved it with a little less cheese though.
|Famous French Toast - $9.80|
OK! This is really a must have! If you don't order anything else here... this french toast will have to be the ONLY thing you order. Thick toast, coated nicely with egg sprinkled with sugar. Not too soggy or oily. Love it.
Miam Miam is also at Westgate Mall for all westies like us, so there's no excuse for you not to visit Miam Miam, even if it is just for tea. Being on level one, with alfresco seating at the courtyard, I would say Miam Miam's location at Westgate is perfect for families with little kids like mine. Space to run around while the adults enjoy their meal.
