Miam Miam, a newly opened French cum Japanese Restaurant, located at ground floor of Gurney Paragon Mall, right beside to Ben’s and beside Starbucks as well as Italiannies. Prices are considered on the higher side in Penang’s context.
As for the main, Squid Ink Pasta (Rm 26.80) which comes in a rather big portion. Many are skeptical to order this dish due to its appearance and the aftermath of savoring this dish. The al-dente Spaghetti was being stir fried along with chopped Bird’s Eye Chilies, Garlic and Squid. The dish turned out to be on the salty side and it was very oily. Moreover, the amount of Garlic and Bird’s Eye Chilies added is rather insignificant, the flavor was way too mild to someone’s liking. The Squid Ink doesn’t possess any significant flavor and in fact, this dish tasted very similar to Aglio Olio, in black version that is.
Famous French Toast (Rm 16.80) is one of the must-try items. It’s the quality that counts. The beautifully charred Toast was robust in flavor, it has a hint of sweetness within. It comes with a scoop of their home-made Whipped Cream and Maple Syrup as well. The Whipped Cream gives a standard smooth and creamy texture but the soul of this dish comes from the Maple Syrup. It has a very subtle flavor, perfectly complementing the fluffy yet delicate French Toast; together with the Whipped Cream, the combination enhances the flavor to the brim.
One of the main highlights of Miam Miam- their Vanilla Soufflé (Rm 16.80); there are rather limited amount of eateries that offer this mouth-watering dessert here in Penang. It must be savored within minutes after they have served the dessert to prevent it from collapsing. Beautifully risen, their Vanilla Soufflé was abundant flavorsome; the Vanilla-Buttery flavor was quite strong. It was quite sweet but not cloying sweetness. The texture was fluffy and smooth. Other option will be their Matcha/ Green Tea Soufflé.
