Miam Miam, a French-Japanese Cafe which named after the French expression "yum yum", is located at the ground floor of Gurney Paragon. We get to know about this cafe from Ken Hunts Food and we were so tempted to try their Famous French Toast.

I'm clueless about the appropriate term that I can use to describe the design or concept of Miam Miam. Perhaps traditional-meets-modern concept? Quite eye-catching though.

The menu of Miam Miam is charming. Picture is included for all the food items in the menu. But choices are limited. 

The order chit.

Our table number. Free wifi is provided. 

Complimentary water is given to all the dine-in customers. 

Iced Matcha Latte with Softee (RM12.80). This matcha latte topped with matcha ice-cream was a marvellous drink. I like its unique rich taste and that whiff of aroma. A drink which can give me a boost. The taste is even more pleasant when the ice-cream melted into the matcha latte. And now I'm really hooked on matcha latte. Another drawback of this drink is there were too much ice cubes, so be sure to drink it fast.

Royal Milk Tea (RM 8.80). A tea mixed with sugar and milk. It is a very popular tea in the country of Japan. To me, it was smooth and soothing. Less sweet and I'd like to add a little more sugar to make it tastes sweeter. However, my friend was opposingly likes this cup of tea. To him, the milk tea doesn't tastes grim eventhough it is lack of sweetness and you may discover the more subtle flavour of tea that were over-powered by sweetness. 

"Miam Miam" Spaghetti (RM24.80). Spaghetti comes with half poached onsen egg, egg plant, bacon, shimeiji mushrooms and sausage. The most special spaghetti I ever tried. This is a Japanese style spaghetti carbonara where spaghetti is topped with onsen egg (slow-cooked egg) instead of cream. The onsen egg is the highlight of this spaghetti. Mix the onsen egg and the other ingredients with spaghetti on the plate and eat. I promise you this will bring you a delightfully rich and satisfying toothsome chew. In addition, this spaghetti is not too oily and the portion is big, for 1 to 2 persons.

Famous French Toast (RM 16.80). Two thumbs up for this, the best french toast I ever had. Unlike the other french toast you had in OldTown or Hong Kong style cafe/ restaurant, this french toast is not made by deep frying stacked sliced bread with butter peanut filling dipped in beaten egg, served with a slab of butter topped with syrup or honey. The bread is thicker (it is Japanese bread?) and not scorched, soft and rich in custardlike flavour, not too wet and soggy. The beaten egg/ custard is really entirely penetrate and saturate every nook and cranny of bread. 

Besides, the toast is lightly dusted with powdered sugar to give a slight hint of sweetness. Smooth and creamy home-made whipped cream and maple syrup are also served together with the toast. Eat this toast together with the whipped cream and a dollop of syrup for a taste of heaven. Overall, Miam Miam serves really unique and palatable foods, but the prices are slightly high, especially for the drink.

  1. I should really try their matcha series, but the two of us were too full that time. Maybe next trip.... lucky you, for ordering the correct pasta dish, the squid ink pasta we had was oily and too seasoned with salt, hope they are doing better right now :D
