I used to go to THREE at The Seletar Mall to satisfy my pasta fixed and after having one of the good Carbonara (at least to me) in The Daily Fix Cafe (Malacca), I am still searching for one that can BLOW my mind off!
So that particular Sunday, I have this craving for carbonara and sadly, Creation Cafe is closed on Sunday, I decided to pop by to Miam Miam @ Bugis to try their pasta (as my colleague mentioned that their pasta is not bad).
Before you read on, I need to re-emphasize that I am not a food blogger. HAHHAHA
Miam Miam is a casual Artisanal French café-restaurant that brings together a mixture of French Artisanal Cuisine & Techniques with influences derived from traditional Japanese preparation & cooking arts.

Since we are here for the pasta, how can we not order Spaghetti!
We started off with the Onsen Egg with Mushroom Soup as the appetizer. I know that it might be a little over-rated but it is new! Onsen EGG!!!I would say that the idea of having the Onsen Egg in the mushroom soup is new to me and I am VERY skeptical on the taste. HOWEVER, I need to admit that the Onsen Egg goes well with mushroom soup. I feel that it is not creamy enough as I could taste the stock used. I prefer French table (at least to me)!
Next up, our main! We order 3 mains for the 3 of us (The big guy, the small kiddo and me! I had their Carbonara Spaghetti:The Carbonara was not thick enough but I really need to give *two thumbs up* for their pasta as it was cooked to al dente! Overall, it was a little too liquidity and salty for my liking.
The big guy had Teriyaki Chicken Aglio Olio without Leek (they actually cook that with leek):The aroma of the roasted garlic just won me over. Al dente spaghetti with the right amount of oil and roasted garlic. This definitely taste better than my Carbonara. Although it is supposed to be Aglio Olio, but I could not taste the chilli (mMmm)..
Not forgetting kids meal for our little kiddo:I have to thanks their effort what was served looks almost the same as the photo in the menu. Even though it was for the kids, the kitchen staff also maintain the same standard and my kid actually finished the plate of spaghetti.!
How can we not order something to “close” off the dinner at Miam Miam!
We ordered their signature french toast with soft serve. (Do note that they require about 20mins to prepare this)! One of the best french toast I had. The toast was toasted with some burnt at only one side of the bread so there is this “crunch” on every slice of the bread (not sure if that is the norm or they just burnt my bread). The maple syrup was not too sweet when it goes with the bread and ice-cream. Overall, it was a nice dessert to end your dinner (without the heavy whipped cream – yes, it is heavy whipped cream as it did not “melt” after we finish the toast).
Total damaged: $70+ for this dinner ^^
