PauPau @ Miam Miam Cafe Restaurant, Gurney Paragon

Miam Miam Cafe Restaurant, a French - Japanese cafe which is strategically located at Gurney Paragon, just at ground floor (right beside of Ben's) or opposite of Starbucks or Italianese restaurant.


Miam Miam in French is actually means "Yum - Yum" or yummy.


Charming and spacious dining place.




They served cold or warm water (no charges) to their diners.


There is quite limited selections for the mains in the menu, however savoury signature dishes do beat up quantity. The squid ink pasta and squid ink rice is actually quite disgusting me at the first place, as I could not imagine chewing this black black in my mouth. 
So, I have ordered soupy pasta - Lobster Bisque Pasta and my partner ordered the "Riz Noir" Squid Ink Rice. 

"Riz Noir" Squid Ink Rice (RM 28.80 + 16% Charges)
The "Riz Noir" Squid Ink Rice is consists of black rice served with assorted seafood and omu egg. 


The black rice is served with three juicy prawns and QQ squids.


First bite on the black rice is totally kick away my earlier disgusting thought, and it is so heavenly delicious. The black rice has the sticky texture and it is quite savoury with hint of dried shrimp taste.  


Lobster Bisque Pasta (RM 29.80 + 16% Charges)
The Lobster Bisque Pasta is a soupy base pasta, which is slow cooked and topped up with parmesan cheese and prawns.


The three fresh prawns is quite big size, juicy and springy.


The Lobster Bisque soup base is quite creamy and rich in taste, with the al dente pasta is definitely divine. 


Now they are having promotion for UOB credit card holders, for spending above RM 50 and you are untitled for a free soufflé.  

Valrhona Chocolate (Actual price: RM 18.80 + 16% Charges)
Soufflé is actually a lightly baked cake with egg yolks and beaten egg white, and it is puffed up and fluffy. 


This soufflé has a crisp fluffy outer, yet the cake inside is soft enough and the rich chocolate cake is easily melted in mouth.


See, how soft the chocolate cake is! This sweet tooth is too irresistible not to have one, at least.
