|The House of Robert Timms @ Wheelock Place
The House of Robert Timms ('THRT') is one of the oldest Australian Brand that we normally associated with coffee. I can relate to this as LD's brother drinks THRT brand of coffee at home.
|Robert Timms Selections
THRT in Wheelock Place is the first branch of THRT in Singapore, which opens in 2010. Drawing inspiration from the brand's heritage and origin, the bistro showcase the simple and hearty Aussie flavours. The décor is bright, simple and very open, very similar to those modern coffee chains around the world.

|Robert Timms' Fish and Chips
Robert Timms' Ultimate Fry Up ($25). Instead of having a set breakfast, THRT will ask you to build your own fry up. You can choose 1 type of eggs, 2 type of proteins and 3 type of veggies and more. Our tasting sample was scrambled eggs, bacon + smoked salmon, grilled tomato + arugula salad + sautéed mushrooms. A slice of brioche is part of the fry up.

The scrambled eggs is smooth and creamy, just the way we like it. The crispy bacon is to die for. Crispy with a hint of fats (ok... a bit more than a hint of fats), accompanied with mild flavour smoked salmon. The mushrooms and tomato is nicely done, a good combination with the bitter arugula. Definitely my kind of breakfast, or a good hangover cure.
Aussie Baby Ribs ($28). it comes with two mid-size slab of ribs with sticky home-made special sauce. The meat of the ribs is cooked till its fall of the bone. Don't expect the messy ribs drenched sweet and savoury sauce, instead it is a well coated ribs in which the marinate was well absorb by the meat. The salad is lightly dressed with balsamic vinaigrette and the fries was thick and crispy.

Overall, THRT food is typical Aussie wholesome, tasty and unpretentious. Expect generous portion of servings providing you with value for money. Best of all it is open until 1AM everyday. Wow!!
