Media Tasting at Thyme at Rochester
Nestled in the lush greenery of Rochester Park, Thyme @ Rochester is the perfect spot to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city life while enjoying some Western delicacies. Apart from serving amazing brunch in the weekends, they have recently launch an affordable Weekday Lunch promotion. Starting at $11.50+, you can choose from a wide range of Salad, Sandwiches, Pasta and their Lunch Specials. With so many options to choose from, there is something for everyone.
If you are looking for something light and healthy, their Grilled Tofu and Avocado Salad is packed with flavour and nutritions. In addition, it is perfect for vegans!

Another interesting main is their Creamy Verduras with Roasted Pumpkin Linguine. We were expecting a pumpkin infused cream sauce but the roasted pumpkin was served as a side. Overall, there was a good balance between the mild sweetness of the pumpkin and the heavy cream sauce. However, the dish can get a little too jelak (overwhelming) at the end when we finished the pumpkin.

For their lunch specials, the chef recommends their Tofu Caponata with fragrant long grain rice and their Malabar Fish Curry with Basmati Rice. Flavoursome and really spicy, the Malabar Fish Curry is best enjoyed with hot steamed rice. Warning, it is not for people who struggles with spice. One bite of the Malabar Fish Curry and my mouth feels like it’s on fire. Then again, I have really low tolerance for spicy food.

Top up $4 and you get to enjoy a Soup of the Day & Chef’s Salad. The soup of the day – pumpkin soup did not boast a thick consistency which I preferred and there was a strong corn flavour which reminded me of Mos Burger corn soup. If you are a fan of Mos Burger corn soup, you will love their pumpkin soup! If you are working around Buona Vista, do pop by Thyme @ Rochester to escape from work and enjoy lunch in a beautiful green setting without breaking your bank.
