A concoction made of peach, oat milk, chamomile and French vanilla. A milky drink that is very pleasant to taste - light, fruity, and refreshing. I loved the chamomile overtones and the notes of peachiness that can be further elevated by just eating the peach cubes in the drink. The vanilla oat flavour is also a good complement, albeit light. Interesting flavour and beautiful presentation. Worth a try!

Cheesecake was thick and creamy. Making a wild Guess but the base of the cheesecake seemed to be brownie fudge. While I personally like a cookie/biscuit base cheesecake any day, that’s because a brownie base like this makes the cake too sweet. I must give credit to how the cheesecake portion itself definitely takes the cake though. There’s a certain quality and texture to it. However for $8.50, this rather small piece of cake may be too hard on the wallet for an afternoon tea time.

Creamy, smooth, and not too sweet even though there is both chocolate and vanilla inside. Coffee was strong as well. One of the smoothest coffees I have ever drunk. Ambience is good too.

The high tea platter consists of prawn and crab sliders, sweet potato with quino salad, strawberry éclair, gentlemen designed red velvet cake and assorted scones. It comes with a pot of tea of your choice.

Personally, I enjoyed the scones the most. Scones was served warm and moist with chocolates bit and raisins. Nice! The rest are pretty average.

the lamb was a tad too fatty for my liking but it was well seasoned and prepared so it wasn’t too gamey which i appreciated. decent but not one of their best dishes

Was torn between ordering this load of cheesy goodness versus a ‘healthier’ option of aglio olio. It seems pretty interesting to me that TCC has designated sections of the menu which are listed as healthier alternatives and provide caloric counts for those foods - would be great if they could expand that to the whole menu but that’s a pipe dream since they’re not a health food restaurant.

This dish comes with brown rice, which I absolutely love. There’s more bite in brown rice and it holds its firmness more than white rice, but it’s usually harder to achieve a nice consistency as it takes longer to cook. Thankfully the brown rice was not undercooked, and each mouthful provided a slight nutty texture that paired well with the cheese. The curry sauce was quite watery, and a little dismal because the flavours didn’t come through much. I think they were going more for a Japanese curry taste but I couldn’t taste it at all in the midst of the cheese and the sauce just served to ‘wet’ my rice 😂

TCC didn’t stinge on the cheese, and it formed a thick layer on my baked rice. Interspersed in this cheesy layer were pieces of lobster and scallops. Not too sure if they’re really lobsters as the pieces were so tiny they looked and tasted more like hei bi but maybe they’re bits of slipper lobsters or something. The scallops were decent sized. Overall there was quite a lot of seafood within the cheese layer and I think it’s quite worth the amount paid, however, the sauce needs a bit of working on.
