TCC, the coffee connoisseur #3
#01-17, The Atrium @ Orchard
6884 9223


After watching the hilarious ‘Kung Fu Panda’, Hui Yi, Wen Yi and I went to TCC for a late night dessert.

The Dark Devotion ($9.90++) was delicious! Topped with vanilla ice cream, summer berries compote and a delicate orange sesame tuile, it’s actually a warm chocolate cake.


See how the chocolate lava oozes out? Sinful but worth it!


The Devil’s Chocolate Cake ($5.80++) was not as devilish-nice as the name implies. The ratio of mousse to cake was not well balanced as there was too much mousse. The cake was also a tad too dry for my liking. A redeeming point is that there is a layer of raspberry compote between the mousse and cake which gives the cake a tangy taste.

Service was not as terrific as that of the Suntec branch. Instead of serving water to us immediately, I needed to request for them after our order was taken. Also, for some unknown reason, the waiter took away Hui Yi’s cutlery.


All in all, the food at all the TCC outlets I went so far is still consistent and I like the cheery yet classy surroundings of the boutique cafes.

WELCOME!

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!
