10 @ Claymore, Pan Pacific Orchard

Posted on March 18, 2011


My hectic schedule prohibited an early entry for this post, it is a pity and you will soon know why.

Ditching my ‘longing to be slim’ body aside for the evening, I knew i had to gorge on everything worthwhile. Boston lobsters, live US freshly shacked oysters, modest portions of the finest meats like Wagyu Beef or US Berkshire and Kurobuta Porks. Hold it right there, do I hear tummies rumbling?
A near regretful promise made to a gluttonous cousin, was overcome by this sumptuous buffet meal. Upon arrival at the bistro, we were gladly received by the personnels, whom had made our meal very welcoming. A brief peek at the surrounding of the restaurant, spelled some serious trouble. You wanna know why?

These were WHY…

And these… I had a dozen, and yes – all alone.

Plus, my utmost favourite corner – the cheese plate. Unlike any other individuals, who would naturally dig into the crustaceans and bivalvias (normally known as shellfish) or meats first, I prefer my lactose diet. Please don’t get me wrong, my stomach will not be satisfied with cheeses alone, the curdled milk would only help rouse my appetite.

As I reminisced some words from a fussy grandparent, whom invariably emphasized that every kid had to have something temperate before anything cold, I ordered two à la minute medium-rare tenderloins from the February promotion, United Plates of America. The delightful menu, which allowed every diner to partake different cuts of meats in petite servings, included some unique ingredients, already named in the first part of the post.

The helpings of beautifully grilled meats and sides were desirable, I refused to stop ordering till our table was packed.

Lamb chop and a side of fries (the waitress failed to ask for the choice of side, I would choose mash anytime.), a Kurobuta pork T-bone with a side of mash, a Berkshire pork wiener and still a side of mash plus another portion of Tenderloin for my cousin, with, you guessed it – a side of mash. The mash was out of the world kind of heavenly – smooth and creamy, simply irresistible.

Being a crustaceans lover, I freaked out when a heap of once-breathing Boston Lobsters were laid on a bed of ice, before me. Tears trickled down my cheeks and a grin emerged as I picked up a halved body and a giant claw. I am not exaggerating, I was honestly elated. Laugh all you want, I will not bothered by any gigglings.

No meal, especially this one in particular, would be complete without desserts. Equipped with the usual Chocolate fountain, fruits plate, and arrays of different cakes and puddings – I was spoiled for choice.

I went home, a happy kid with a bulging tummy and a whole week of oats for lunch.

(FYI: The United Plates of America ended on the 6th of March, this was the part which I thought was a pity to miss out on. However, 10 at Claymore came up with a March-April promotion, the Baits of Pleasure which includes catch treasures such as Gratinated Chilean Diver Scallops, Rozer Bamboo Clams, New Zealand Black Mussels, Poached Tiger Prawns and Crispy Soft Shell Crabs, will also presented in petite portions.)
