Dinner at Mimi Restaurant in Clark Quay

秘密 Mimi Restaurant in Clark Quay opened in 2019, during the good old pre-pandemic days. Much has changed in Clark Quay, the riverside dining and entertainment hub, because of the Covid-19 Circuit Breaker and safe distancing measures. Mimi, the modern Chinese restaurant run by the 1-Group, is still there but now only opens for dinner.

We had visited Mimi 秘密 for lunch during the “good old days” (read Shhh! share a secret about Mimi at Clarke Quay). It was like a hip and playful teenager then. A key element of its interior decorations was the large contemporary Chinese portraits in pop art colours on the walls.

We visited Mimi for dinner recently. It has grown into a stylishly elegant young lady. The interior decorations are more subdue but chic and contemporary.


The menu has also been refreshed. The digital menu is on its website. At the restaurant you can view the menu on your mobile phone by scanning a QR code.

Mimi has a private room with a private dining menu – suitable for birthday celebrationns and corporate dinners.

Dinner at Mimi

We began our simple dinner with Saucy Crab & Egg Affair 鸳鸯蟹肉配馒头 ($22), which was chilli crab sauce and egg white sauce served in “yin-yang” style with mini fried mantou. It was very nicely presented. It was almost like eating chilli crab in a seafood restaurant but without the messy fingers. It was an enjoyable dish which we would order again.

The next dish was Black Stout Pork Ribs 黑啤脆排骨 ($22). The deep fried stout-marinated pork ribs served with a boozy Guinness Stout foam would please anyone with a penchant for stout. That aside, the ribs were actually quite good – very tender and delectable.

We also had the egg and seafood horfun. It was the least good looking dish and had neither an intriguing name nor exciting ingredients. However, it was good old fashioned comfort food. The dish was rather tasty and satisfying. The portion was quite substantial too.

Good Alternative Venue

Mimi Restaurant in Clark Quay is not like your typical Chinese restaurant. The upper floor dining hall is a stylish contemporary space in a historical building. The menu is interesting and prices are reasonable. It is a good alternative dining venue when you want a Chinese meal that is a bit out of the ordinary. Mimi has charm and personality – and nice food too.

It matters not how simple the food - a chop, steak or a plain boiled or roast joint, but let it be of good quality and properly cooked, and everyone who partakes of it will enjoy it. - Alexis Soyer
