We revisited TCC for dinner the other night. We'd originally intended to try Nando's, just next to TCC, but it was a full-house and there was a long queue just to be seated. As you all well know by now, we hate queuing, so we made a beeline for TCC instead, which is quite surprisingly, really. Their food's good, ambience casual and breezy, prices reasonable, but there's always seats available in this cafe. Maybe it's because most people think that they serve only coffee? Hmm...
We started off with the Spicy-hot Wings ($12.50) which was lipsmackingly juicy and moist but with an exceptionally spicy and peppery battered crust. I was quite stunned at how spicy this was, in a very Mexican, slow heat, peppery way. You have been warned.
The Fiance got the Beef Stew ($20.80). This was braised so well it was fork tender, in a red wine and tomato veal jus, and paired with oven baked herb potatoes.
I got the Shrooms and Splash Gratin ($16.80) of golden baked penne gratin with shrimps and mushrooms ragout topped with mozzarella. Even if the shrimps were a little teensy weensy, I still liked this for its creamy, cheesy, mushroomy flavours.
