Starting from today, 10 at Claymore presents ‘Pacific Plates of Pleasure’ this June and July!
Though 10 at Claymore is primarily a buffet restaurant, I didn’t pay as much attention to the spread as it deserved so I can’t comment much. Except that the fresh Boston lobsters were superb and the Kapiti lemongrass ice cream was wicked! Haha. Like the gourmet high tea at the Lobby Lounge, the impression I had was that 10 at Claymore’s buffet strategy is “quality over quantity”, good one!
We concentrated on the ‘Plates of Pleasure’, unlimited servings in petite portions that’s available in addition to the choice buffet spread. I can’t decide which is my favourite — the bouncy scallop with an intriguing blue cheese sauce or the spicy king prawn. The latter is a prawnified version of our local chilli crab, complete with fluffy golden fried buns for mopping up the delish sauce! Barramundi was cutely presented in a wooden tube, think refined mousse-like “otak” paired with sourish tamarind-chincalok on the side, clever.
Full house on a Friday night, 10 at Claymore is clearly popular for buffet among Singaporeans and… Birthday celebrations! While we were there, at least 4 tables broke out in a chorus of “happy birthday to you~ happy birthday to you~~~” throughout dinner. And the sweet service team also sang a belated birthday song for me! How could I not be charmed?!
