Now 10@claymore quite packed, esp during the weekends. Anyways, from the writeup, it seems like they might not have pop during the easter promo as the items are indicated as 'on the buffet spread'. So it might not be a loss tat you can't get a table afterall

Hmmm, you have to wait til after apr then for the menu change iirc.
me waiting for si chuan dou hua to have their buffet until my neck long liao

Err, those are the nicer items? If so, then sounds good. Banana???? Simi banana?




You wanna try? We can try straits kitchen too. Then you can compare their durian pengat with the one at Brizo. Straits kitchen, brizo n feast@east are the places with the best durian pengat for buffets imo.
i don't mind trying this as well as Straits Kitchen.

Feast&East food nice as well? I must try to go there to try durian pengat.

Ooops, my bad, it should actually be straits cafe. Straits kitchen is the hyatt one serving halal hawker fare in hotel environment n price

Feast@east spead is very limited, n very local fare. I can only remember their durian pengat good. Got newspaper article even said our ex president nathan also goes there often for their durian pengat , although i tink i still prefer the brizo one more. Babi pong teh, n laksa quite okay. Salmon sashimi also pretty decent. Something like tiffany lunch in terms of spread n items even for their dinner.

Carey & Toons,

10@claymore, i went on Wed 4th April 2012, not crowded. Each about SGD70 odd, one of us (3 pax) ordered one glass of white wine - SGD16.

One friend ordered the Penang Laksa (I don't take spicy/chilli), he finishes the whole bowl but didn't hear any comments. Ordered the prawn soup but never turn up.

Their waiters look competent but they miss out my order twice.
-------------------------
Spice Brasserie (Kitchener Road) weekday lunch - SGD 27++
(15% discount if using UOB credit card, paid around SGD25)

Japanese: Salmon and Tuna is tasty, Sushi average.

Asian (Total of 16 claypots spread excluding porridge section):
-Roast Pork Belly meat is soft with crispy skin (not much fatty layers).
-Steam Clayfish with glass noodle thai style (yummy TangHoon noodle), -Black pepper chicken (nice sauce which I pour onto my TangHoon),
-Curry etc, didn't try the rest because of spicy issue.
-(forget it's name, the cripsy egg cup (mini size) whereby u put the popiah fillings)
-Salad bar

Porridge (didn't try):
6 claypots - salted eggs, luncheon meat, etc

Live section:
Beef (tough) and Chicken Satay nice
Prawn Mee Soup
Tempura
Carrot Cake
Char Kway Tiao (nice) with generous clams, lup cheong, bean sprout and prawn. Requested for less oil.
Stir fried vegetable.

Dessert:
kueh lapis is nice, cakes also nicer than claymore's, ice-cream much better than suki group, Ground Coffee bean kopi with milk, Twinings tea set. Fruits, dry fruits, Kueh items. (Think I remember a lot dessert items whenever I go buffet).

Overall, it's value for $$. Lunch crowd is about 20 odd people. Nice couple seats available.

------------------
Plaza Brasserie (Beach Road) Sunday Brunch - around SGD45++
(15% discount if using UOB credit card, paid around SGD38)

Seafood: cold prawns, mussels
Japanese: Sashimi not as good as Spice Brasserie, sushi never replenish (I went around 2:30pm)

Asian:
-2 kinds of soup which I didn't try
-Chicken rice (average) ,
-Cripsy Soft-shell crabs (yummy), -Sea-cucumber mushroom vege (average),
-Druken Prawn
-exotic Roti Prata with 2 types of Curry
-Roast chicken Kebab
-steam chicken meat dumplings

Western:
-exotic bread and cheese
-ham, mashed egg mayo, tuna mayo
-Salad Bar

Dessert:
Moist cheese cake is nice, Strawberry cake nice too. butter bread pudding not bad. Red bean soup, ground coffee bean kopi, ice-cream etc.

Overall, not value for $$ for a Sunday Brunch and it's not replenished regularly. Spice Brasserie is definately much better than Plaza Braserrie in terms of environment and food.

Bro, wats the carving you had? Which day you went? Did you try their other 2 penang dishes? Prawn noodles n laksa i tink. I remembered tat their prawn soup is sedap. The manager also claimed tat their laksa is veri good. Got diners specially come to their high tea just to jiak the laksa. Dunno true or not

Btw, is spice brasserie the one at the hotel at beach road? Can give me some reviews? Worth trying n wats the better dishes? Must try new places n its on my list

Easter Egg-travaganza

Kick off the month of April with a week-long Easter experience at 10 at Claymore.

Besides the ubiquitous Easter eggs and chocolate treats, diners can look forward to fresh catch from the high seas with free flow of Boston Lobsters, Alaskan King Crab and Oysters from America, France, Canada and Ireland.
While the adults indulge in a broad mélange of treats such as Australian Quail Confit, Angus Prime Ribs and Tasmanian Lamb Rack available on the buffet spread, the little ones will get to unleash their artistic flair by participating in various chocolate egg painting activities*.
Any idea is we can use the singtel voucher for this event? TIA

Next Thursday?

This time going to be smarter. Tell uncle $20 worth of char siew. Can skip the roast duck.
Think yesterday char siew $10, roast pork $5 and roast duck $5. The $1.50 noodles not worth it also. If the lagoon char kway tiao is fried by the old man, then can eat. If fried by the daughter, can pass.
I can't make it on this Thurs lunch.
Wed or Fri is ok for me though.

More char siew will be nice
