"Gourmandism is an act of judgement, by which we prefer things which have a pleasant taste to those which lack this quality." – Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin

Ma Maison Restaurant (Japanese-French fusion food)

Ma Maison is the French word for “My Home”. The ambience is cottage-like, with country-style curtains and furniture. The place is dimly lit so it is definitely not like any other Japanese restaurants with tatami.

Our orders:

Escargot Baked with Garlic Butter ($9.50 for half dozen) – extremely aromatic garlic and flowing butter that makes you crave for more snails. Very well baked and it has been the best I’ve eaten so far. We ordered a dozen of these!

Cheese Fritter $9.20 – deep fried cheese coated with batter. Not cheesy so you won’t feel sick after two bites.

Scallop Carpaccio $9.80 – a must-eat appetizer. The sauce that comes on top of each scallop is so refreshing and cooling. It literally opens up your stomach for your main course! How would I describe it? Cool, a little sour, a little sweet topped with orange fish roes and onions. Lost for words.

Cuttlefish Ink Spaghetti $15.90 – Share this with your friends. It gets a little dry and sick after a few mouthfuls. There is very few pieces of cuttlefish. Such a pity. How I wished they would add some seafood to the dish to make it more worthy of the fragrant cuttlefish-inked black spaghetti.

Italian Hamburger Steak with Cheese (160g) $16.90 – A whole piece of cheese topped on top of your thick hamburger steak with some greens as sides. The hamburger steak is not dry inside, and the cooking was good as the steak which was almost 2 cm tall was cooked thoroughly in.

Chilled Red Wine (Prom Mama) $12.30 per glass – My friend commented that it is not the best red wine in town. It is “sting-ing”. Oh well, nothing beats our favourite at The Wine Company. Throughout the course, we were discussing when to visit The Wine Company again for some nice wine and their seared black pepper tuna. AAAAAAAHHHH!!!!

Their specialties are Special Beef Stew, Original Hamburger Steak and Paella. Their menu also include the traditional katsu curry rice. Well, it does serve some Japanese food. However, a pity there wasn’t much variety of food to choose from in their menu.

Reservations is a must as their restaurant is small and usually packed with diners.

Prices exclude 7% GST and 10% service charges.
