Ma Maison, which means “My Home” in French serves Japanese-style Western food, is done up to look like an English cottage
The windows are curtained with floral curtains giving it a charming vintage look. On a personal note, I love the look and feel of the menu - which what feels like leather.
We specifically came for its famed Hamburger Steak, which sits on a sauce that is simmered for 28 days – fully flavoured and very enriching. Topped with a Fried Egg and Moreish Potato, the beef patty is grounded nicely and finely grilled.
Sink your teeth into a thick cut and you will marvel how tender the meat is. The Potatoes also came with a bite – a nice contrast to the soft beef. The other celebrated dish is the Cuttlefish Ink Pasta, a dish that is shunned by many girls as the squid ink stained lips, teeth and tongue.
The pasta was done al dente, but I find the Cuttlefish pronounced flavour a tad too “fishy” for me. I also find the ink roughly coated – a touch of butter might enhance the dish better – and the serving of thinly sliced Cuttlefish and Mushrooms were pretty pathetic in my opinion.
When it was time to ask for the bill, you get a heavy brass key and key ring – a fitting end to make you feel at home.
Food: 3.5/5 (The hamburger steak was good but pasta was disappointing)
Service: 3.5/5 (Staff were very friendly but we waited 45 mins for a table)
Ambience: 4.5/5 (Perfect for first date and Valentine's Day)
