13th June 2013.
Fathers’ Day is nearing. However, my dad would be terribly busy for the weekend, so our family had an early celebration. Traders Hotel’s Cafebiz was fully booked. After reading about Pan-Pacific Orchard’s 10 at Claymore, we decided to have our dinner there instead.
To make up for its limited options and size, 10 at Claymore focuses on more premium items such for its buffet line. One such way is a seasonal menu called Plates of Pleasure, an a la carte menu with tasting portions. From 1st June 2013 till 31st July 2013, the Pacific Plates of Pleasure is being offered, starring items like New Zealand Mountain Range Rack of Lamb with peppery Mongolian crème and Sweet Kumara which was delish. Sweet kumara is a kind of sweet potato from New Zealand.
Australian Beef Tenderloin with Balsamic-Red Wine Reduction and aromatic Mashed Truffle-Cauliflower.
And Vietnamese River King Prawn with Garlic and Chilli Drizzle came with a perfect mantou to mop up the tasty gravy. We had seconds of this.
There is also Penang Char Kway Teow, a speciality of the restaurant but it tasted average.
Overall, we enjoyed our dinner. The seafood, including crabs, mussels, scallops and prawns were fresh. Condiments such as Thai Sweet Chilli Sauce, Wasabi Mayonnaise are available. There is also an oyster station.
Most of the items there were above average. I enjoyed the Tandoori Chicken served with Indian styleyoghurt.
The Baked Salmon is offered alongside roast meats like lamb and beef.
The Cheese Counter, I spotted Kapiti Cheeses from New Zealand.
My dad and brother enjoyed the desserts the most. For desserts, there were Black Forest Cake, Banana Strudel, Almond Pudding, Mango Pudding, Pistachio Financier, Opera Cake, Tiramisu, Green Tea & Red Bean Cake just to name a few...and a live station serving crepes.
Coffee and TWG tea were part of the buffet too. Personally, I think its biggest flaw is its tightly packed seating arrangement hence making it less conducive for dining with children compared to Cafebiz.
