There wasn’t a full month since I was at Tams House last time and here I am again. I guess I am addicted to their delicious food.
I can boldly say that such cuisine is a stars-and-prizes winner. We are happy to have it in Bulgaria and at affordable prices. If this restaurant was in Vienna or Milan, we would pay minimum double bills, and if there is a Michelin star, which their food deserves -even triple and quadruple.
Last month I couldn’t try many of the things from the menu that intrigued me and here I continue to explore Todor’s and Melissa’s gastronomic mastery. To learn who they are and find out what else is worth trying in this precious place in Kapana, read my first post about it There I wanted to dine on my next trip to Plovdiv, at Tams House.
…. You’re not going to see a sign with the place’s name. People are looking for it with Google maps. It’s very small and there’s a danger to pass by and miss it. Book a table before going there, because it’s not easy to dine there just on the go;
…. The little pearls in salads, which are usually some kind of ingredient that you’re used to seeing in other ways. For example, in the Don Tomato salad, the black pearls are from balsamico vinegar;
…. The beautiful colors of Ceviche Fusion;
…. The wonderful red splash which you will see at the end of the movie is Velvet Cake with cream cheese and pomegranate – a wonderful dessert with extremely saturated color;
…. And most of all, dessert Apple of Discord- pieces of apple with cinnamon, in fluffy caramel mousse, chocolate stalk, mint leaf, crispy crumbs on the side- incredibly tasty! Do not share it with anyone, so that there is no discord. It’s best to see it in the movie, since its presentation is extraordinary!
…. Friendly attitude by the staff- whatever you ask the waiters about the food, they will tell you gladly but only if you are interested. They don’t explain anything at serving the meal. I think it’s because most of the customers are not aware that they consume a very high-end cuisine, prepared with a lot of expertise and knowledge in gastronomy;
…. Here you can pay by card, unlike another good neighbouring restaurant, named Pavaj. Unfortunately, the lack of devices for card payment at some places, creates necessity to highlight it as an advantage;
…. The tables outside are small and foldable- they shake at touching and there is danger of falling bottles and glasses at very stronger and sharper push. The place is very tight, so moving and pushing is almost inevitable when getting up.
…. There is a light music, jazz I think, which is not heard much, because in Kapana there is always a buzz, from the densely located places, crowded with people.
Movie watching time: 1.52 min.
… The rich scents of the Ceviche, stirring memories of Asia;
…. Caramel in Apple of Discord and its combination with mint, chocolate, cinnamon and freshness from the apple.
…. The Falafels in the starter Chickpeas and Egg Plant are exceptional- very tender and juicy insideq crispy outside. The falafels that I’ve tasted from Arab street food are dry-ish inside and not as delicious as those at Tams House.
…. Pork Tenderloin Charcutier – in my previous post I praised it and here I do it again. It’s very good, what to do! The Dophine potatoes and the rice are on their own champions too! 🏆
…. Cake Velvet layers, the Apple of Discord- take coffee with them to have a perfect breakfast. Look in the previous post to see which other dessert amazed me.
Whatever you order at Tams House, everything is not just delicious, but extremely masterfully prepared, with special cooking techniques, beautifully plated, memorable, bearing emotions!
