"My Home"

Ma Maison, which means “My Home” in French serves Japanese-style Western food, is done up to look like an English cottage

– the quaint ambience is coupled with weathered wooden beams and panels, with racks of plates and crockery.


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.

Yah! The ambience is such as that. I had problems taking my photos as well due to the bad lighting. But I was quite disappointed with the cuttlefish ink pasta.
