From now till 30 June 2021, tcc- The Connoisseur Concerto, be launching new seasonal offerings to collectively celebrate Mother’s Day and Father’s Day or Parents Day. There are new items as well as some returning crowd favourites.
Here are some of the dishes that we tried as part of the two-course Parent’s Day meal from The Connoisseur Concerto.
tcc Parent’s Day set
Chilli Lamb Soup
The Chilli Lamb Soup is made with a blend of chilli powder and paprika as well as chunks of pan-seared mutton. It also comes with crisp garlic bread to add some flavour and texture to this hearty soup.
Premium Steak & Frites
A tasty pairing of steak and fries, this dish has a well-seasoned striploin topped with green peppercorn sauce. On the side, there are crispy fries with fried garlic chips as well as a sprinkle of Japanese chilli spices for an extra kick. There is also a petite salad, which is drizzled with wafu dressing.
Warm Angel Hair Pasta with Smoked Duck Carpaccio
This artfully-plated pasta is topped with thinly sliced smoked duck carpaccio and coated with a savoury warm onion dressing and drizzled with refreshing kyuri-carrot salsa that is made with ponzu, which gives it a citrus aftertaste. The citrus taste was very light but still made a difference when eaten together with the salty smoked duck.
Both the mains can be upgraded to a two-course set, which is served together with the Chilli Lamb Soup, at S$26 for the Warm Angel Hair Pasta set and S$34 for the Premium Steaks & Frites set.
The Iced Hibiscus Citrus Soda Tea and Iced Butterfly Pea Spicy Mango Soda Tea
There are also Instagram-worthy seasonal beverages as part of this set.
The Iced Hibiscus Citrus Soda Tea is made with a combination of citrus hibiscus, lime fruit, mint leaves, mango, coconut water, soda, hibiscus tea and strawberries. It was light and made a good palette cleanser.
There is also an Iced Butterfly Pea Spicy Mango Soda Tea which is aesthetically put together using butterfly pea tea, cucumber, spicy mango, lime juice, soda and ginger beer, with added sliced mango. We were hesitant at first as the idea of a spicy drink was not to our appeal but found it to be much sweeter than expected and the heat to be a bit more subtle.
Overall, the meal was satisfying and we think that this would be most enjoyed by diners who enjoy a little heat in their meals as almost all of the dishes had some form of spice in them.
All Day Breakfast
Want to sleep in but still enjoy the foods that are traditionally consumed for breakfast? tcc’s all-day breakfast features a variety of dishes that bring new twists to familiar heritage flavours.
The Steak & Egg Benedict comprises of a petite wagyu hamburg steak, sautéed beef striploin, yellow peperonata and poached egg perched on English-muffin French toast, with yuzu-mustard hollandaise spooned over the top. We found the texture of the muffin French toast to be interesting and this was a change from the usual toast that is served in eggs benedict dishes
We also tried the Scrambled Egg & Salmon Pancake. This very hearty dish is made with a lightly-toasted, truffle-infused pancake layered with Norwegian salmon, scrambled egg, wafu baby arugula salad and tobiko. It was very indulgent and imagine that this would be better for sharing.
For a sweet treat, try the White Mille Crepe Cake, a Hokkaido vanilla layered crepe cake is served with fresh berries, berries coulis, meringue sticks and vanilla gelato. We enjoyed this layered treat and the tartness of the berries were very pleasant with the sweet cream in between layers.
