TCC – The Connoisseur Concerto

During this season of the Great Singapore Sale (GSS), TCC is currently offering a 1-for-1 promotion on their main dishes and pastas for their members. Most of my family and friends are already members and we took the opportunity to feast again on our favourite dishes at TCC! Note: To qualify for membership, you will need to spend just SGD$80 on one receipt. The great thing about this membership is during your birthday month, you get 50% off your bill (excluding 7% GST and 10% Service Charge) for the first visit of your birthday month and 30% off for your second visit.   The Appetizers Wild Mushroom Bisque This is a bowl of creamy wild mushrooms broth served with garlic bread. Their mushroom soup is not too thick and this bowl alone is likely to make you full, therefore it’s good to share unless you have a big appetite. The Tuna Salad is also a must-try. There are 5 pieces of tuna per plate tossed with homemade citrus-miso dressing.  Tuna Fish Salad Pastas This has got to be my personal favourite pasta – the Spaghetti Aglio Olio flavoured with chilli and garlic and accompanied with prawns and pan-seared scallops. I have eaten this dish for at least 10 times so far and I’m pretty sure that I’ll order this at my next visit. Note: This dish is rather spicy due to the chilli padis and seeds found in the whole dish. You could request for a less spicy dish when placing your order. Seafood Aglio Olio  A new dish added to the menu recently is the Soft-shell Crab with Black Pepper Pasta. It’s my second favourite pasta now. The Spaghetti is tossed in spicy teriyaki black pepper sauce, crowned with crispy fried soft-shell crab and asparagus spears. I love the generous serving of tobiko as the garnishing too. As for this Chicken Spaghetti, the taste is just so-so. I do not recommend this as the above two choices are definitely better than this. Mains TCC has a good selection of great tasting healthy main dishes too! This is one place where you can feast on delectable, guilt-free food!   Oven-roasted Spring Chicken with Brown Jus Beef Striploin with Yakiniku Butter Sauce Snacks If you’re looking just to have some munchies or small bites, try the hearty portion of wedges with irresistible melted cheese dip. Otherwise, the Shrooms Bite – a delicious light puff pastry filled with a sautéed mushroom ragout will make a great choice too. Drinks Hazelnut Latte Caramel Ginger Crumble...

Carousel Royal Plaza on Scotts – Lunch International Buffet

Carousel, Royal Plaza on Scotts, is famous of its halal certified International Hotel Buffet. This buffet located near Orchard MRT is a popular choice among locals and foreigners as it serves up a wide variety of Seafood, Asian, Chinese, Indian cuisines and also has a wide spread of delicious desserts and fruits. Salad bar Seafood Display at the Front Counter  For lunch, Carousel typically serves up: Japanese, Seafood & Crustacean, Salad & Appetisers, European, Rotisserie, Pasta, Asian & Western Soups, Breads & Rolls, Asian, Chicken Rice, Desserts. As with any International Buffet, I would usually head straight for the (1) Seafood Section first. They had Salmons, Green Mussels, Sweet Clams, Half Shell Scallops, Crabs (Blue Swimming and Mud types), Slipper Lobsters, Main Lobster Claws! Lobster Claws The next section that I love to patronize is the (2) Rotisserie Section. The dish that they were serving up was the Beef Sirloin (Medium done).  My personal preference would have been Medium Rare though. Carousel has also a good selection of (3) Cheese: Blue cheese, Brie cheese, and Fresh Parmesan cheese. I took brie cheese, it has always been my favourite. (4) Desserts: White, Milk and Dark Chocolate, The Orange Chocolate Pearls Cake, Creme Brulee, Puddings, Yam Paste and Ice Cream. This is a must try! Love the crust, so sweet and crispy. Chocolate Cake I love their Creme Brulee with the layer of sweetened icing on top! Thumbs up! This place is highly recommended for Seafood lovers. By the time you stomach down your portion of the seafood, you may not have the stomach to visit the rest of the counters (which makes up 80% of the whole dining area). If you’re not one, I would suggest that you skip this buffet as it’s more costly than the average Asian cuisine buffets (minus the seafood) – it’s just not worth your buck. TIPS: (1) Please call in to book in advance if you wish dine there, especially in big groups. (2) Lunch is strictly from 12:00 to 14:00, I found the timing rather tight. If you’re a fast eater, good for you. Otherwise, you might end up having to gobble your food down if you turn up late. (3) Lobster claws are almost snapped up by 13:00. I have tried asking them before if there were still lobster claws when I couldn’t find any (i only had 1 pathetic claw as I was late). The reply I got was that they do not replace the lobster claws. Thankfully, another waitress was kind enough to serve...
