T-Roy Browns used to be my daily coffee place. First thing every morning Troy fixed me up with my caffeine hit in the form of a takeaway latte. The coffee here is by Cartel – it’s rich, smooth and served with a smile. If you’re a regular you can also text in your order so that it’s pre made and ready to pick up (a lifesaver if you are getting your coffee at 7am) and there’s a loyalty card.
But sadly now I’ve switched jobs I don’t make it to T-Roy’s as often instead opting for the lazy option of the cafe underneath Media House. So I was happy to head back to the little vault under Banana Alley for an invitation to check out the new menu from former Maha chef Petros Dellidis.
The menu is a mix of super healthy and super naughty. From the healthy side there’s slow cooked crusted salmon fillet which is cooked sous vide and served wtih rice and a beetroot salad ($15).
If you’re feeling naughty it’s hard to go past the truffled mac and cheese jaffle ($10). Seriously decadent this is a toastie filled with risoni, black truffles and gruyere made on T-Roy’s signature sour dough. It might just have to replace my previous favourite T-Roy order of the salami toastie.
And there’s also an epic Rocky Road Shake made with teddy bear biscuits, marshmallows, nutella, peanut butter, vanilla ice cream and milk. Yes I think this pretty much cancelled out my healthy salmon lunch.
I also checked out T’Roy’s raw nutella health balls. This is the only thing on the menu I wasn’t a fan of as I was craving more of a chocolate taste but that’s the chocoholic in me talking. If you haven’t been to T-Roy’s before get there for the great coffee, tunes and new menu which allows you to be just as naughty or nice as you want to be.
Gourmet Chick was invited to review T-Roy’s new menu but has visited T-Roy’s hundreds of times (yes really I am a coffee addict) independently.
