The House of Robert Timms, one of Australia's oldest and most established gourmet coffee brand, has been introduced to Singapore and opened its first bistro on 4 November 2010 at Wheelock Place. Drawing inspiration from the brand's heritage and origin, this bistro epitomises the warm and down-to-earth spirit of Australia through its casual decor and wholesome cuisine. Serving only the freshest Australian ingredients and a selection of premium Australian wines and beers, The House of Robert Timms is set to be the quintessential Australian bistro in Singapore.
I was fascinated by their big size macaron as i pass through their shop. They sell macaron with size as large as macdonald cheeseburger size. I bought one green macaron to try, was really curious how it would taste like? If you have a sweet tooth, you can try this out. For me, the big size macaron taste too sweet for me. After eating half of it, i feel like stopping. Well, i am not one to waste food, thus i finished it eventually. My suggestion is to cut this big sized macaron into four to five pieces and share it among friends for high tea. One big size for one person is too sweet. This is also good if you are buying small gifts for someone. Example, you are going to visit a friend and you want to buy small gifts but not too expensive ones. You can go for this big size macaron. The packaging is very presentable. The staff is very helpful and will reccomend some of their best seller macarons to you. One big sized macaron cost around $3.50, but it is the size of around 4~5 small macarons. Thus, this is worth the price. Well, if you purchase small macaron they cost around $1~$2 each. The advantage of buying small macaron is that you get to choose diffierent flavour. However, if you know there is only one specific flavour that you are so in love with, you can buy this big sized macaron to ease your craving.
I had lunch at The House of Robert TImms around a year back, and rather liked it. The Beau and I were rushing for the Def Leppard Concert the other night, and one of the available options was The House of Robert Timms, so we decided to dine there. The ambience at this outlet was casual chic, with wood panels, mirrors and comfortable seats. Service was effective in general, especially that of a short-haired lady who was always friendly with smiles.
They started with my Halloumi Cheese Prawn Salad (SGD$12.50), consisting of fresh prawns, grilled haloumi cheese, Kalamata olives and mesclun greens. The prawns were indeed springy and crunchy in texture, indicating their freshness; and the greens were refreshing. We also loved the tiny cubes of grilled cheese which had a lightly-saltish flavor, complementing the salad very well.
The Grilled Striploin Sleigh (SGD$29.00) came in skewered form, and was served with roasted capsicum glazed in berry balsamic, served with spiced roasted kumara wedge, cherry tomatoes and buttered zucchini. The grilled Striploin beef pieces contained a slight-charred flavor to their sweetness, and the gravy had a strong, tasty flavor to it, that added a touch of juiciness to the tender meat. I did not really like the kumara (sweet potato) wedges though - too saccharine for my desire.
My Bun-less Turkey Burger (SGD$24.00) was interesting. Two thick pieces of pan-fried stuffed turkey breast formed the topmost and bottom layers of this burger, clasping between them bacon, grilled tomatoes slices, caramelized onions, and lettuce, topped with sunny-sideup egg. Fries and red wine sauce were served on the side – we were informed that the turkey breast tasted best when dipped with the sauce. I pierced the egg yolk immediately to let it cascade over the burger, so that the sweetness could infuse into the meat. An innovative creative with succulent turkey, and it was pretty tasty. However, I still believe that turkey tastes best with cranberry sauce.
