MIRI: THE BLUE RABBIT BISTRO & BAR


Today's post is gonna be a quick restaurant review but first off, apologies for the hiatus, life has been coming at me like a bullet train with the due dates and assignments and exams.

In these 2 to 3 years, the cafe culture has been booming in Miri, but I never actually got around to visiting any of them because to be honest, "The Ruffles" has my heart but we'll save that for another post!


So on a fine fine day, I decided to divert from my staple and settle for this little spot instead. The food is a fusion of Japanese and Western  and the interior design is a cross between Vintage and  Victorian/Mexican/Modern (?). Still nice, nonetheless.

Not entirely sure where the name "The Blue Rabbit" originated from, but I guess it's quirky and does suit it in it's own odd way!

The staff was all very polite, which is a super big plus because customer service is everything when it comes to the food & beverage scene. Put it this way, your food could be godsend but if the service is terrible, it loses at least half of its reputation. 

Remember when I said the interior design was a cross between Vintage and  Victorian/Mexican/Modern? Yeah, check out the sick mount on the wall!

And these vintage props as well!

Apparently, they have live bands playing every now and then here, which explains the set up of  speakers and mic stands  in one corner of the restaurant.

 We didn't get to order much as we just had brunch before popping over here but food wise, I think it's pretty worth it for the money. The plating was great as well, would make a nice instagram shot if you're a foodie-grammer! We had an array of Japanese cotton cheesecake in 2 different flavors, soft shell crab burger with a side of super crispy fries, soft shell crab ramen, and fried chicken wings!

The Japanese cotton cheesecake was pretty good, albeit a little drier than expected but still flavorful. We had it in original and green tea, personal opinion, but I preferred the green tea one.

I loved the fries, mainly because they were chunky and fresh, also it was lightly seasoned with salt!. The burger was an 7/10 for me. The portion was huge and I couldn't finish it on my own. It was served in charcoal bun with lettuce, thousand island dressing, and some sauce which I couldn't really figure out what it was.

If you're a noodles person, you'd probably like this. I think this was my favourite dish out of everything else we tried. The ramen soup had fried soft shell crab, surimi, hard boiled egg and seaweed in it; sprinkled with sesame seeds, spring onion and sliced chili.

The fried chicken was just so-so in my opinion, a tad over-glazed which made it a little too sweet for my liking.
