the connoisseur concerto (tcc)

tcc, a chained cafè and restaurant that boosts a comprehensive selection of gourmet food and creative beverages. A relaxing place where one can enjoy breakfast meal, light bite, lunch, afternoon tea or dinner. The food quality is of great standard and tastefully done.

tcc have outlets across the island and   you can always locate one such outlet near you.

I have tried some of the items on their menu. The food quality is (without a doubt) flavorful and importantly tastily done. Certainly, I hope to be able to try more (if not all) of their gourmet items on the menu in time to come.

Forest Mushroom Bisque

Forest Mushroom & Garlic Toast – one of the better mushroom soup that I have had. The garlicky toast accompaniment definitely adds additional brownie points to the overall soup enjoyment.

Smoked Salmon & Kabocha Soup

Smoked Salmon, Pumpkin and Garlic Toast – the bisque is tastefully done and goes extremely well with the smoked salmon. One of the more interesting soup that I come across.

Cauliflower Bites

Cauliflower Floret, Herb Batter, Japanese Chilli Spice & Chili-ginger Mayo.

Shroom Bites

Puff pastry, mushroom ragout, parmesan and mesclun green. The pastry is puffily delicious.

U.S Country Fries

Straight-cut Fries with Cheese Dip & Truffle as Add-on Flavor. The fries are freshly served and I like it piping hot.

Saucy Crispy Wings

Fried Chicken Wings tossed with Classic Buffalo Sauce.

Hokkaido Sweet Corn Croquettes

Potato with Hokkaido Corn Stew Filling and Citrus Soy-truffle Dip.

Soft-Shell Crab Tacos

Soft-Shell Crab, Chilli Mayo, Tobiko & Seaweed Tempura. Pretty unique dish and also one of their best seller.

Cold Angel Hair Pasta with Ponzu-Marinated Salmon & Scallop

Angel Hair, Black Truffle Paste, Ponzu-Marinated Salmon & Scallop. This is one pasta dish I would highly recommend.

Ground Beef with House-made Herb Tomato Stew, Spaghetti, Shaved Parmesan & Runny Egg Yolk.

Baby Crayfish Spaghetti

Baby Crayfish, Tomato Cream Sauce, Spaghetti, Wasabi Tobiko, Panko-crumbed Poached Egg & Tobiko. They are generous with the crayfish portion. 👍

Clam, Hotate, Mentaiko Wafu Sauce, Spaghetti, Runny Egg Yolk and Seaweed.

Steak & Egg Benedict

Petite wagyu hamburg steak, sautéed beef striploin, yellow peperonata, English muffin “French toast”, poached egg, yuzu-mustard hollandaise. This is interestingly good. A must try in my opinion.

Scallop & Baby Crayfish Baked Rice

Hotate, baby crayfish, shimeiji mushroom, Japanese rice, shellfish sauce and mozzarella cheese. I am not really into baked rice but I must admit that this is good.

tcc offers a wide selection of beverages as well.

tcc Cold Brew Bottle

12 hours slow drip cold brew. Smooth, aromatic and refreshing. My personal favourite.
