Kangaroo Loin.

The House of Robert Timms. We've always thought this looks similar to TCC. Their colors perhaps. We thought they served more of coffees, desserts etc, but after reading about a promotion they were having, we were sold. The promotion, featured on a popular deal site, was 1-for-1 on all mains, pastas and steaks. And judging from the prices on the menu, it's a really good deal if you go in pairs. One person ends up paying for only less than $15 before taxes if you're not going for the more expensive dishes. Well, provided if they have what you want available, and that you actually get a table. Because when we went there without a reservation, we had to gobble our meal so that we could let the next guest have it at 7pm. Also, the table on our side had to re-consider their order twice as their Mussels were out of stock, their Short Ribs unavailable... As they're an Australian restaurant, they should be good in their Kangaroo dishes right? So we tried... The Stout Braised Kangaroo Loin ($30) was kind of hard to chew, or rather just tough. Some parts were tender. The loin is the least used part of the kangaroo, so if it's still so tough, we wonder what would the other parts taste like... But then again, this is probably their "cheap cut", being on the lower end of the menu, as they have the more expensive "Steak" tier, going for $40 a cut. So well, beggars can't be choosers.  Also, it seemed like it went in to a microwave before meeting us, because the heat just 'erupted' from the middle when we mixed the sauce with the meat. Nonetheless, the taste of the sauce wasn't compromised. In fact, the sauce tasted quite good, and we actually used the sauce as a dip for the healthy, natural vegetables. The two sticks of pastry were interesting touches as well.  The Barramundi with Cilantro Butter ($28) is a pretty normal dish. The fish is of a decent portion. The tomatoes somewhat a different world from the fish... Anyway, if you don't really like meat, I guess fish is the way to go...

Randomly ate here whilst waiting for a movie, drawn in by the amazing looking cakes and macaroons on display. Sadly, this was the best aspect of the visit.
 I ordered a Roast Chicken salad, cost $15, as there was a similar salad in the "take-out" fridge and it looked pretty decent. The take-out salad cost just under $10 so I figured "Well $15 seems a lot for salad, but at least the portion and quality looks good based on the $10 one..."
 How wrong I was. I literally had to force myself into very small bites, eating very slowly, to make the meal last longer than 30 seconds. Compared to the considerably larger portions u get a places like Chili's for just a few more dollars, this was pitiful and the chicken was dry (of which there was also very little btw).
 
 If I'd have had time to complain and wait for another dish, I would have. Will never eat here again. And someone should really tell their staff that smiling and eye contact costs nothing, but is worth a lot.

It's a kind of habit to settle down at this cafe, after walking or going to walk the orchard area.  Moreover, the Borders was there before, that was the usual hangout place for a meal or coffee to perk up.

So with this changed of cafe, my habit is still the same.  So far, we had other than coffee time, their breakfast meal also a good try.  Except for the dinner, nothing special about it.  But they have a very interesting dish, a glass of fries, nice to munch during gathering time.
