When it comes to restaurants, K likes nice ambience while I’m more into the food.
So we agree to disagree on The Clan Restaurant.
Beyond the classy setting, there’s really nothing spectacular about this place. Most people go for the 6-course set menu at $63.80++, supposedly of good value, but I’d rather pay the same for a 3-course (or even 2-) meal of higher quality and gratification. Our pickings off the ala carte menu were decent at best, mostly forgettable dishes.
You’d think that a combination of tuna, earl grey, lavender and basil will taste weird, but it turned out bland so that was okie. Poached salmon was awesome but it was not my dish, sadness. My cod fish was quite pathetic, the size of my palm (I have very small hands) and way way overcooked. Chocolate lava was clearly a misrepresentation, we didn’t get a cake that has that oozing runny chocolate that I want, tsk!
