Last Sunday I treated the whole family to a happy weekend brunch at the newly opened Mireio in Raffles Makati!
The casual and yet very elegant French brasserie has just launched its weekend brunch menu with light (ie. not overwhelming) and delicious, Provencal-inspired fare.
The bright and spacious dining room has the perfect ambience fit for families (both big and small) who love gatherings and long, relaxing lunches during the weekends.
What’s the menu like?
We started with two kinds of appetizers, a platter that was meant for sharing : Mahi-Mahi Gravlax seasoned with coriander, lemon and herbs AND Homemade Terrine with garlic and pickled shallots.
Served together with the appetizers were the Nicoise Salad with baby potato, green beans, boiled egg, black olives and onions.
And what is a weekend brunch without eggs?
Right after the appetizers, we were given a choice between two kinds of eggs : the Eggs Benedict, which was perfectly poached on top of beef tongue, served with Bernaise sauce and topped with Iberico ham.
And Truffled Scrambled Eggs drizzled with black truffle juice and topped with chives.
Clear Beef Consomme flavored with star anise was then served next to “balance out” the richness of the egg dishes.
And being a French restaurant which focuses on Provencal-inspired dishes, we also had the classic Clams Marinière sautéed in white wine.
And this hearty and delicious Slow Cooked Oxtail Parmentier with black truffle jus, topped with potato mousseline.
Last but not the least, we also got to try this light and healthy Pan-seared Salmon cooked with curry spiced beurre blanc served with spinach.
To cap-off our hearty meal, we had a delightful cheese and dessert buffet at the end!
There was an assortment of French cheeses as well as pies, tarts, macarons, cakes, ice cream, cookies and on-the-spot crepes. You name it, we had it! (It’s the weekend after all, so we all indulged!)
