Restaurant week was upon us once again and the venue of choice this time round was Clifford, which I had a pretty good experience at for brunch quite a while back
 
Complimentary Bread - Baguettes and multigrain buns served with a side of smooth butter and deliciously sinful duck rillette (it was a tad dry though) started the meal rolling. My personal favourite? The baguette; crusty, light and served warm. 
 
French Onion Soup - Sweet without coming across as overly heavy but a little lacking in cheese in my humble opinion. Still a decent French onion soup nonetheless. 
 
Foie Gras Pan Seared with Cresses Salad Fresh Fig and Figs Jam on Brioche - I thought the foie gras was pretty good but could do with a little more searing to achieve a lightly crisp surface. The buttery goodness from the brioche complimented the sweetness of the foie gras but this is seriously a heart stopping combination. Portions are a little small as well for a $12++ top up charge.
 
Whole Lobster Angel Hair With Fresh Tomato, Sweet Basil and Lobster Butter Sauce - This required a top up of $25++ and even though the lobster chunks were aplenty and crunchy, the angel hair pasta was a little too soggy, probably the end result of sitting too long in the tomato sauce. One other issue I had was that the tomato sauce, whilst lightly tart and zesty, became a little boring after a while and the whole dish lacked variation in flavours. It was just tomato, tomato, tomato. I couldn't even make out the sweetness of the lobster.
 
 
Clifford Signature Duck Confit - I had this during my previous visit and remembered it to be very good. And it didn't disappoint. Crisp on the outside but moist and tender on the inside. No truffle mash this time round though.
 
Slice Of Chocolate - This was essentially a chocolate hazelnut tart served with passion fruit sorbet and chocolate crumble. The chocolate was rich with a nice hazelnut taste but didn't across as too heavy. I personally liked the crunchy wafer layer wedged in between. And the passionfruit sorbet wasn't as sour as I had expected it to be. Pretty nice dessert!
 
After the top ups, the bill for 2 came to about $173, which sorta straddled the line on the value for money criteria. Food at Clifford was a case of hits and misses but the entire experience was generally a positive one. Coupled with great ambience and good service, I might return but probably only for brunch or restaurant week where it won't cost me an arm or a leg to dine there.

This Fullerton Bay Hotel restaurant with its chic, contemporary decor, ten-metre-high floor-to-ceiling windows and waterfront views make it a desirable spot for a weekend brunch buffet. Luckily, the food does not disappoint either. Saturdays are for eating your way out of a hangover with a hearty spread of steak and eggs, Belgian waffles, burgers and forever-crisp shoestring fries, truffle omelette with gourmet salads, antipasti and desserts. Wash all this down with the restaurant’s own concoction of Bloody Mary. Sundays are devoted to more bubbly, and all you can eat of a semi-buffet that features dishes like a foie gras terrine, salads, quiches, oysters, poached live prawns, Boston lobster, freshly-carved roasts and pasta cooked a la minute.

ee my full reviews & photos at = http://chefquak.com/2014/03/29/excellent-lunch-company-clifford-on-27mar2014/

had a most enjoyable lunch at clifford, fullerton bay hotel, on 27.3.2014, in the company of good friends. 
we were served baguette & multi-grain roll. both were good, and especially so as they were served with duck rillettes in addition to the usual butter. 
i had lunch at clifford maybe 1.5 years ago with my dining quartet which has now discontinued. food & ambience were truly excellent, especially as we had the uob 1 for 1 at S$68 (so S$34pax) 3-course lunch then. 
the price is a lot more now, 2-course for S$48, and 3-course for S$58, coffee included. we took the 2-course. the appetizer choices included a salmon tartar, a mushroom veloute & i think a salad (cannot quite recall). the mains choices included a herb crusted lamb loin, a dory fillet, and a pasta (can’t recall what). there were a lot more appetizer & mains choices but they came with supplements.
1 friend ordered the lobster salad (top photo – looked just fabulous) – S$12 supplement, and the 220g beef entrecot (a ribeye or scotch fillet steak) – S$25 supplement. i ordered the salmon tartar & lamb loin & another friend ordered same salmon & the dory. the salmon tartar was a good-size helping.
the suave, efficient & polite restaurant manager prakash came by to ask about the food, so i gave him some feedback. i thought the salmon tartar was very fresh & sweet but the sour cream distracted & did not quite enhance the flavour (this part of course is subjective taste…). personally i like it with just sea salt & pepper & olive oil. 
i thought the prices were really too high, though fortunately the regular appetiser & mains (i.e. w/o supplements) were quite excellent. compare this with les amis’ 4-course S$45pax set lunch, which included choice of patagonia toothfish (the excellent chilean seabass my favourite fish) or quail. to be fair, i have not tried the les amis set lunch yet (will do soon enough!), but you know it’s les amis! 
likewise the excellent S$45pax set lunch we had at au jar din! & au jardin’s plating was also somewhat more artisan by comparison!
my herb crusted lamb loin was excellent, nicely medium rare & flavourful with hardly any gamey taste. the dory looked great. 
the beef entrecot looked perfectly charred. somehow it did not quite look like 220g, not sure if it was dry aged for more intense flavours & so had some weight loss.
we had coffee & petit four (which means small oven & not 4 items!). macarons were too sweet. nutty chocolates were ok. 
overall, the service was efficient & responsive, the ambience was just super, and the food quality quite excellent. i thought au jardin’s food though was better & of course the price was not just marginally but significantly higher than les amis (S$48 2-course vs S$45 4-course set lunch) or au jardin. i will come here for its great ambience, service & food, but sparingly.
