More from Ma Maison

Here's a mentaiko spaghetti tossed with onions, mushrooms and some prawn topped with nori strips from Ma Maison (#03-96 Central, 6 Eu Tong Seng Street, tel: 6327-8122). What I like about it was the blend flavour from the mentaiko and seaweed. Gotta love that smoky edge that they gave to the pasta. If anyone has any good mentaiko pasta to recommend, please let me know.

This was fried Camembert cheese. Had an unexpectedly light crispy batter. Cheese was soft and gooey inside. Liked it much better than I had thought. The sauce on the side was lemon honey with a sprinkle of coarse grain pepper. Works with the cheese but they were also good on their own.

The beef stroganoff ranks somewhere on the top my list of comfort food. The scrambled eggs over the buttered rice was so good. Don't know if it's anything close to original Russian versions, but I wouldn't be surprised if it's a Japanese interpretation of the dish.

there's something about japanese-style western food that makes it so fascinating...not sure if it's the simplicity of ingredients used or just simply, a different cooking technique. heard a lot about ma maison and will definitely check it out.
