Miam Miam Cafe at One Utama is now renamed as Franco,  French Japanese Fine Casual Dining, same location at 146, Ground Floor, 1 Utama, Bandar Utama, Petaling Jaya. Check them out at  https://www.facebook.com/FrancoMalaysia

Ever since Miam Miam opens its door in One Utama, patrons has flocked to the place to try out their legendary sweet treats, be it French toast, soufflé or pancake. French toast is the must order, try it to know the difference.

This casual artisanal cafe-restaurant put together French cuisine and technique with influences derived from traditional Japanese preparation and cooking art, reaching for a French-Japanese menu that promises a delicious, yummy dining experience for every diner, as the name say- Miam Miam (means Yummy in French).

Mac & Cheese RM23.80
Fresh shell pasta filling up the pot, topped with four special cheeses namely the yellow cheddar, parmesan cheese, orange cheddar cheese and mozzarella cheese, and sprinkled with crunchy Japanese breadcrumbs. Baked till golden brown with a pleasant cheesy aroma once served. A summary of chewiness, crunchiness and buttery cheese sensation. Best for sharing as it is awesome at the first few spoonful, and may cause cloying towards the end if savoring alone.

Black Rice & Omu Egg RM28.80
Black rice with omu egg is something Miam Miam proud of. The black comes from squid ink, sharp in colour but mild in flavour. It is cooked with assorted seafood, performing more textures. Not to forget is the Omu egg, moist and fluffy soft.

Lobster Bisque Pasta RM29.80

A good portion of lobster bisque pasta that comes slow cooked to perfection to allow the sweetness of of lobster to absorb in, round off with rich, creamy and savoury soup base, topped with Parmesan cheese and served with grilled tiger prawn.

Miam Miam Spaghetti RM26.80
Miam Miam Spaghetti, an all time favourite that has strands of spaghetti sautéed with frankfurters, tomato, baby spinach. Further tossed with French butter, secret sauce and shoyu, finally topped over with beautifully done, subtle soft boiled egg. Apart from the al dente pasta, outstanding smoky flavour of frankfurters brings in extra characteristic, level up the pasta’s liveliness.

Original Pancake with Matcha Softee RM12.80+

Miami Miam’s pancake tastes best at its original. Compact but not overly dense, the pancake is delicately soft with a faint hint of eggy scent. Eat while it is still warm, and pair with cold matcha softee for an enjoyable hot and cold contrast.

French Toast RM16.80
The most awaited dessert in Miam Miam. One might wondering on the need to spend more than RM15 for a plate of of French toast. But it is all worth it after trying out. They are not the ordinary French toast. Bread is freshly made in thicker, denser form, and carefully dip in egg mixture to get a special proportion, avoiding overflow of egg mixture. Slowly pan fried, pile high in square cut shape then laced with home-made whipped cream, powder with icing sugar and showered with maple syrup. Have the three ingredients together to get a marvellous flavour, a good combination that compensate each other,resulting in buttery, fluffy light with a hint of sweetness. A French toast that maps itself into a brand new version that looks, and tastes differently. We do agree that Miam Miam’s French toast doesn’t turn famous for no reason.

Caramelized Banana Pancake with Vanilla Softee RM19.80
A generous portion of dessert, having original pancake beautifully dressed over with banana caramelized in deep golden caramel, crowned with premium gelato vanilla soft serve, garnished with toasted almond nibs. Layers of textures from the spongy soft cake at the bottom to velvety soft in middle and chilling sweetness on top.

Hot Matcha RM8.80
In contrary with matcha latte, hot matcha has no milk, distinctly filled with fragrance of green tea imported from Japan. Close your eyes and enjoy every sip slowly.

Iced Matcha Latte wit Matcha Softee RM13.80
While artisan coffee is now everywhere, matcha latte is still yet to be discovered. Summergirl is happy to find matcha latte here, icy cold, thickness added with a scoop of subtly smooth matcha softee. Doesn’t matter you swirl in the softee into the latte to enhance the milkiness or have it separately while sipping the drink, as both taste equally good.

Hand Dripped Iced Coffee RM9.80

Berries Soda RM13.80
