Crustacean Celebrations

Get your seafood cravings satisfied in October and November with the Crustacean Celebrations happening now at 10 at Claymore til 30 November, right at Pan Pacific Orchard Hotel
I took a ‘dive’ down to Pan Pacific Orchard last Sunday for Brunch to explore the ‘treasures of the ocean’ found at 10 at Claymore.

Their buffet spread was quite good – they have all the buffet specialities like salads, desserts, soup, cheese platter, bread and a whole spread of seafood. In addition, they also serve their signature local dishes like their award-winning Char Kway Teow, Penang Laksa and many more. These dishes could be ordered off their signature à la carte buffet menu. You can get unlimited servings of seasonal specialties and premium meat in petite portions off their à la carte buffet menu in addition to their bistro fare and succulent seafood spread. Yes, the buffet spread goes beyond the buffet table spread…

Chocolate Fodue Station

The most enticing feature of the buffet for me is actually their chocolate fondue. If only, we are allowed to coat our lobsters and fish with dark chocolate too.

You shouldn’t miss this! The chocolate fountain is relatively quite big. These people are really generous when it comes to chocolate.

This is practically like walking into Charlie’s Chocolate Factory Pop-up store. You have cookies, marshmallow, puffs, lady finger biscuits and so many other ingredients which you can dip in chocolate.

Untitled

They even had this crêpe station where there’s a nice selection of toppings and fillings to go with… Nutella, peanut butter, jam, banana or how about some durian? Chef Andy recommended me to try their Durian Crepe served with a scoop of ice cream and IT WAS DA BOMB.

Suddenly, my vision became super clear and I don’t even think the haze can hinder me from seeing the beautiful spread of buffet items which seems to glow under the warm lightings.

Untitled

Oh, beef lovers. I must have got you there.

Untitled

That has to be the Penang Laksa Station. YOU HAVE TO EAT THEIR PENANG LAKSA or you will regret.

Untitled

Don’t blame me if I’ve drifted off too far from the main theme of seafood as I am more of a sweet tooth. Some highlights of the seafood buffet is the Pacific “Live” Yabby, Indonesian Mud Crab, Chilean Scallop with Roe and Boston Lobster. Baby, this is where you get the REAL STUFF.

Sashimi. Woo…

Untitled

Now, that was what I was talking about!

Untitled

Their hearty buffet spread was well-balanced with a fruit section where fresh fruit juices were served.

Untitled

Truly devilish. Oh no, I think I missed the Crème brûlée! Why didn’t I noticed that there was Crème brûlée?

Untitled

Fallin’ in love with food once again.

What’s the secret of walking out of a buffet place without looking like a big fat lobster with rosy cheeks?
Here’s how you do it.
Untitled

1. Appetizer: Grab some leafy greens and juice to whey your appetite.

Untitled

2. Order off the signature à la carte buffet menu first because these are their must-try dishes.

Their Penang Tamarind Laksa broth has literally lifted me off my seat and send me on cloud nine. It was simply heavenly. How could noodles ever tasted that smooth and silky? It just slips smoothly down my throat and the broth was so thick and flavourful. I almost burst into tears because I’ve never tasted a bowl of laksa that delicious. According to Chef Andy, these handmade noodles were brought in from Penang as you can’t get it here in Singapore.

Another dish you should try is Chef Andy’s award-winning Char Kuay Teow which is topped with shredded crab meat. This is the golden Char Kuay Teow of Singapore – it has that authentic Char Kuay Teow flavour with that extra touch of crab meat that added even more texture to the dish. Perhaps the smoky flavour of the traditional Char Kuay Teow is lacking but it has retained the true essence of the Singaporean Char Kway Teow – cockles is a must. Oh wait, where’s my sambal?

So after you clean off your plate of the savoury food and seafood, you might want to start with the crepes first. Forget about Nutelle and Peanut butter, go local and try Durian Crepe. Scoop some lemongrass ice cream to go along with it. I wish I had space for a second serving of this…

Untitled

And if you have more space in your tummy, you could try their Asian and International Buffet items like Satay, glutinous rice, cheese and more seafood.

Untitled

And if you still have more space, try their prawn noodles. The broth has soaked up all the sweetness from the prawns. I remembered finishing the soup first before the noodles.

Untitled

Take sips of water and green tea as you savor all the delicious food.

Make chocolate fondue your final sweet note to end the buffet.

No more food for me the next 8 hours that day but I had an enjoyable buffet with pleasant service staff who constantly check if the table is cleared and finding out if everything is okay.
