Australian cafe serving food and drinks
It was a pretty good experience dining at Robert Timms, not to mention the efficient staff and the nice ambiance. Adore the alfresco dining area that faces the quieter side of orchard road.
The selection on the menu was pretty lacking, with only a few choice of Mains and Sides, however we were pleasantly surprised by what we saw... Braised Kangeroo stew and Kangeroo steak as one of the mains. We took quite alot of courage to try the stew which was presented in dark reddish cubes coupled by some sweet chunks of carrots, zuchinni and onions. The kangeroo meat tasted like a mix of beef and mutton. The texture was good and juicy with a slight muttony after taste. We were quite pleased to be able to boast of our courage to try exotic meat (thats if you consider that exotic.... i know the auzzies are laughing at me the Swar Ku 'mountain tortoise')
We also had the roasted chicken which was pretty well executed with breast meat not too tough and skin well marinated with plentiful herbs served with criss-cut fries which by the way was super yummy.
It was great to meet the buy 2 get 1 free promo as such our free main course was a mushroom and bacon fettuccine. Who can resist these broad chewy noodles in cream sauce.. yes we couldn't and slurped up every bit of it....
The selection of desserts were interesting and there were cakes as well but yet again we couldn't stop ourselves from cafe hopping as such... We would be sure to return to try out the dessert the next round.
Their GSS buy 1 main course & get a pasta free is an excellent excuse to try their food. At 3pm on a Sunday the place was packed and the outdoors only the high seats available but luckily a 4-seater opened up just when we were leaving.
3 of us decided on ordering just 2 main courses with a salad for a late lunch:
Pumpkin Lagsana ($16.50) - this was good! The sweetness of the pumpkin was evident and it also contained small pumpkin cubes to add a bite to the usually mushy dish. The cheese was not overwhelming and in fact just nice and it helps that the dish was served hotly from the oven. The presentation was nice too.
Tofu Pattie ($18.50) - this had mashed potato and sauteed mushrooms along with the pattie. The pattie itself was of a good portion with cubes of tofu in it, and although deep fried but not oily. It was also smothered in a pink-ish sauce which unfortunately made it soggy if you leave it for a while. The mushrooms were okay but the mash potato was very dry and uninspiring.
Spinach and mushroom salad ($13) - we were attracted by the combi of this with pine nuts and balsamic vinaigrette. The dressing was suitably tart and the spinach leaves very fresh. The mushrooms were done same as per the tofu pattie dish.
Service was average, except requests to top up our iced / warm water were sporadically forgotten.
They also have quite some choices of bottled beer which is worth trying out although I think they do not have a Happy Hour promo.
With the promo, it added up to only $37 for 3pax which was such a deal. Come before it ends (ends on 24 July)!
