Am I the only one or do you sometimes also confuse TCC (The Coffee Connoisseur) with The Coffee Club (TCC)?

I was at Clarke Quay last week and mentally saw TCC but told my friends to meet at Coffee Club. Suffices to say, we were halfway through lunch before thinking to ask why they haven’t arrived yet despite us leaving the studio at the same time :p

Namesake confusion aside, I have to say that TCC surprised me with the quality and presentation of their food. When did the coffee place become a food place? IMG_2084

Seared Tuna Salad – the burst of colours decorating this dish makes it almost an artpiece. It passed the taste test with flying colours (pun not intended) too!


The Spicy Seafood Aglio Olio was extremely tasty and spicy the way I like it. The spaghetti was cooked al dente (almost like the way the husband makes it at home) and topped with fresh tasting seared prawns and scallops. This got many thumbs up too =D


Striploin on a Pastry is not its actual name…. or at least I dont remember it to be so. But I do remember it being tender for a striploin and it went well with the pastry. It looks good too, no?

We also ordered the chicken wings which was frankly very lacklustre (so skip that) and coffee (of course). I forgot to get a picture of the coffees my friends ordered – usually the cold variety with a scoop of ice cream. Seeing how I’m still on my no diary diet, it’s unfair to subject me to such temptation or expect me to torture myself getting a good picture of what I cannot have. Everybody enjoyed their coffees with smug smiles.

Good price for good food – that is becoming quite the norm for many of Singapore’s F&B outlets. Competition is tough!

Fremantle Seafood Market (Singapore)

If you are a fan of Sunday brunches / buffets, then you’ll know that this is a really good deal! No prizes for guessing who suggested we go there – the Dan the buffet man =p In addition to a fresh spread of mussels, prawns, oysters, raw salmon and cooked codfish, there was pork knuckle, and roast chicken and lotsa salad stuff too. I thought it a very good spread! 


I didn’t go for the buffet because I usually don’t eat my money’s worth (yes yes I am so Singaporean!) and don’t like to stuff my face trying to… So, I ordered the fish and chips which was served on a wooden board. Very good fish and chips!! Even better than the real Fremantle one(Perth) in my opinion, and I was just there a few months back.


What sold me on this was the freshness and quality of the fish – the texture was a little like codfish. I enjoyed it alot with the thick crispy chips =)


I ordered the mushroom risotto too which was all mushroom flavor but lacked something (salt? :P) I thought it a bit bland but liked the picture enough to include it here 😛

Good food with a nice view of the river (if you sit outside that is) – a great way to spend a Sunday!

Fremantle Seafood Market is at Clarke Quay, beside the Gmax bungee ride.
