A relaxing saturday afternoon with Mrs SOL spent at Miam Miam, Westgate. We do treasure such rare afternoon tea session on a weekend as usually, we will be spending time working at home. Yes yes, you might say where is the work-life balance! However, you will understand if you have read my thoughts on work-life balance. We do still have some ‘life’, just that sometimes is just more work less life or more life less work, depending on our work demand.
Nonetheless, having such lavish (in the aspect of time and money) tea break session do make my weekend more complete, at least not just all work. I love spending quality time with Mrs SOL, where we can discuss our plans over a tea break.
A short introduction on Miam Miam
Miam Miam is a casual Artisanal French cafe that brings together a mixture of French Artisanal Cuisine & Techniques with influences derived from traditional Japanese preparation and cooking arts. Currently, they have two outlets, one in Westgate and the other being located in Bugis Junction.
Their menu has much to offer, from sandwiches, pancakes, soufflés, spaghetti, parfait and rice, suited for you to visit at any time of the day.
I like how they designed their interior, it gives off message that the contemporary flavour is oozing out from a quaint setting.
What we ordered
We ordered the following:
1. Famous French Toast – S$9.80
This is a popular dessert and definitely one of the recommended dish in Miam Miam. It tasted yummy when doused with maple syrup and daubed with whipped cream that both of us savoured to the very last bit.
2. Matcha Souffles – S$10.80
Souffles is definitely another highlight of Miam Miam. They have three types; Vanilla, Chocolate and Matcha. Being Matcha fans, we ordered the Matcha Souffles to try. Overall, appearance wise not too bad, but both of us felt that the taste could be better if it could make it more ‘airy’. What we have felt soggy and less fluffy than what we expected.
3. Hot Matcha Latte – S$6.80
I preferred to drink hot matcha (when the environment allows so), whereas the lady preferred to have the iced version. The taste is near to what St Marc Cafe is offering which is milky yet that comes with faint green tea aroma.
4. Iced Matcha Latte – S$7.80
Mrs SOL’s cup of iced version of the similar drink. Honestly, I would say the iced version do taste better than the hot one. Reason is that with the iced in the drink, it seemed to be less sweet and milky.
Miam Miam indeed served a different feel of food that will attract foodies who have a sweet tooth or inclination to the french cuisines. It does gives off the fusion element both in their shop design and food flavour. Mrs SOL and I will definitely visit this cafe again in the near future.
For now is a yay to a rejuvenating Saturday! Indeed a weekend well-spent! 🙂
