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.
