I traveled all the way to the West side of Singapore just for the food-tasting session at Miam Miam, Westgate. I’m happy to say that the dessert made the trip worthwhile.

Our table of four had the opportunity to try 5 different dessert items, so here is my take on them:
The Matcha Red Bean Cream Souffle Pancake (what a mouthful) was a safe, and perhaps boring dessert. I had imagined that it would taste pretty good given the picture in the menu. I’d rate this B-.
I attended the tasting session just for this chocolate souffle but it was unremarkable for someone with a sweet tooth. It was a little too moist and airy inside. I would have prefer a denser, richer and sweeter version. But if you don’t have a sweet tooth, this dessert will suit you just fine. So for this, I’ll rate it B. *Also available in Matcha and Vanilla flavors
The Berries Cheesecake Parfait was another stunner. It looks like it might taste too sweet, and boring. However, it offers up one surprise after another! The fresh berries go so well with the not-too-sweet icecream, then there’s the crunchy bits of digestive biscuits and finally that cream cheese at the bottom (which we almost mistook for yoghurt). I’d rate this A+ too. 🙂
Really addictive. No wonder it’s famous. Better share with a friend or you might just end up eating it all. I’d rate this an A!
I wanted to try the Chocolate Molleaux but it was all sold out this afternoon. Next time!
*Also the Iced Matcha Latte was fabulous! I had two glasses of it, which is saying a lot about how yummy it is.

(clockwise from top left) The Lobster Bisque Pasta ($18.80) was a tad too salty for my liking though I was impressed by the large prawn (not lobster) lying atop the pasta. The Miam Miam Spaghetti ($15.80) would have been ordinary if not for the strips of bacon. Bacon lovers will love this too. The Riz Au Curry was, well, pretty average in taste, so I’m not sure it warrants the $15.50 pricetag. Same for the squid ink seafood with an omelette on top.
All in all, I would recommend the desserts at Miam Miam. You have to try them at least once, especially since there is now a tea time promotion! Order any dessert or sandwich and you will get to purchase a cup of coffee, tea or matcha drink at just $2! *Miam Miam uses only Grade 1 matcha, hence the intense flavor and velvety texture. **This promotion is available Mon to Fri, from 2.30pm to 5.30pm, except on the eve of PH and PH.
