TCC, the coffee connoisseur #2
#01-025/027 Suntec City Mall
6339 3297

After dinner, the guys wanted to find someplace for coffee and decided on TCC. By the time we ordered, the kitchen was already taking the last orders for the day.

Yang Qian ordered the Potato Wedges with Melted Cheese Dip ($7.90++) to share. The wedges are fried till crispy and served with a spicy cheese dip—which TCC claims to be the ultimate in American-style comfort food.

I had the Ti-Rum-Misu ($6.90++) and I’m glad I did! This Italian favourite is made from TCC’s finest espresso and luscious mascarpone cream. Served with biscotti, fresh strawberries, ground cherry and a chocolate cigar, this dessert looks so elegant and pretty. The portion is worth the price and I like the strong alcoholic taste of the lady fingers. This is really good!

The Choco Tango ($7.50++) is a classic combination of orange and chocolate in an icy cold frappe.

I like the strong orange flavor which is very refreshing.

The Mocha Villa ($7.50++) is very good too! Layers of chocolate, coffee and milk are topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. The contrast of sweet chocolate and bitter coffee is very nice.

The Black Sesame Freeze ($7++) is my favorite out of all the drinks I tried. I love all things sesame and this drink tastes so fabulous and healthy.

The Azuki Freeze ($7++) is a nutritious combination of Japanese red beans and soymilk blended to a wholesome goodness.

The Mint-Choc Frappe ($7.50++) is also another classic combination of mint and chocolate.

This is not bad too.

The Ultimate Hazelnut Frappe ($7.50++) is somewhat a misnomer. It tastes like normal mocha and has no strong nutty hazelnut taste at all.

Service was quite good. When we went in, the manager actually requested a few diners to relocate to another table so that we can be seated at the long booth to accommodate all of us. Maybe it’s due to our large number, they forgot 2 of our orders but the waitress apologized profusely. I think TCC will always an enjoyable place to enjoy relatively good desserts and coffees. So far, I haven’t been disappointed by them.

In ancient Greek mythology, sirens are creatures which have the body of a bird and the head of a woman. They have such sweet voices that sailors who heard their songs were lured into grounding their boats on the rocks on which the nymphs sang.

To me, food are like the sirens in so many ways. Intoxicating, wonderful, beautiful and yet, so very deadly if you let them get the better of you. Food is a big part of my life and it’s meant to be appreciated and savored slowly. I admit that I am extremely particular about what I eat. If it’s not something I want to put in my body, I’d rather not eat. Some people eat to live while others live to eat. I’ve yet to discover which side of the camp I’m in… What about you?

I hope that you will enjoy reading about my food adventures as much as I like writing them. And many thanks to my family and friends who always wait patiently for me to take photos before digging in!
