I would never have discovered this gem of a fine dining place called 10 @ Claymore if not for the Buddy, *Sidney. Tucked away in the inner heart of Orchard, 10 @ Claymore is Pan Pacific Orchard's signature restaurant , located at 10 Claymore Road, Lobby Level, Singapore 229540 and the number to get connected is 6737 0811.
This elegant, exquisite restaurant with dim lightings and Balinese-style furniture, casting a tranquil and beautiful embiance for its diners, is busy winning the hearts of buffet fanatics with its "Plates of Pleasure" a la carte buffet concept where guests can enjoy unlimited plates of premium meats and other specialities presented in miniature portions and served a la minute.
Browsing the different counters to explore what I should start with, I came across the Japanese counter - where variety of sushi is not alot, but the soba (cold noodles) and sushi looked very fresh. The colors were vivid and almost photographic. The Sashimi counter makes one salivate as well, with its display of assorted raw seafood and a friendly Chef serving whatever the guest orders.
We started with the fresh platter of mixed Sashimi - Salmon, Tuna, Swordfish, Octupus and Squid - every item was expertly cut and every piece was juicy, springy and saccharine with freshness.
Next, the Australian Volcanic Grilled Beef - from the "Plates of Pleasure" menu. It was a petite portion all right, but the tenderness was well-noted. The knife went through the red meat easily, and the taste was a smokey hint of deliciousness. Tiny pieces of grilled pototoes were served alongside, heightening the flavor.
We tried the Canadian Honey Shoyu Glazed Cod - another fillet of heaven that was succulent and melted in one's mouth in a mess of sweet, savoury flavors. I always love Cod, but this jewel was so tasty and fresh.
