TASTE THIS MiMi Mei Fair
With a feel of 1920s Shanghai, MiMi Mei Fair – the brainchild of restauranteur Samyukta Nair (of Jamavar and Bombay Bustle) – is a spectacle to behold. Spread across a three-storey townhouse – the imagined private residence of a globe-trotting empress called MiMi Mei Fair –, this chic new restaurant truly feeds all the senses. From the wowing decor to the delectable dishes (think applewood-fired whole Peking duck and clay pots of black bean and aubergine), MiMi Mei Fair promises diners a sensory overload.
