Item: Large dark roast double/double with a Cesar chicken wrap
Date: March 4, 2020
Location: Tim’s, Dalian, China
When J and I were stranded in Dalian during the initial stage of COVID-19, I found that Tim Hortons opened up two stores in Dalian, one of which was right next to the hotel we were staying at! Couldn’t go home, so I might as well grab a taste of home. I went and got myself a large dark roast double/double with a Cesar chicken wrap. The wrap was mediocre but the coffee was desirable. I never had the dark roast in Canada and upon trying it for the first time in Dalian, felt that it was a bit too strong. I went back another day for a normal coffee double/double and immediately that authentic, familiar taste came back. Still, my favourite was the large steeped tea double/double, which I got during my third and final visit to the Dalian location. Unfortunately the steeped tea did not live up to my expectations. Maybe Tim Hortons will come to Wuhan eventually…?
