10 at Claymore (Close)
Sunday Brunch

Date: 13th Feb 2011 (Sunday)
Location: Pan Pacific Orchard
Time: 12pm
Price: $48++ (with free flow of fresh juices)

There is nothing quite like an indulging Sunday, when waking up late and fuss-free feasts are rightfully deserved. Tuck into an exquisite buffet-style Sunday brunch at 10 at Claymore that is essentially a ‘best-of’ showcase of the most popular dishes available from Monday to Saturday.

Highlights include succulent meats, Boston lobsters, fresh crustaceans, sushi, sashimi and live carving stations featuring Roast Premium Wagyu Beef and Boneless Leg of Lamb. Help yourself to unlimited servings of signature dishes served in sample portions by ordering from the ‘Plates of Pleasure’ menu. For the month of December, highlights include Stir-fried US Turkey Breast and Crispy Tiger Prawns with Avocado and Tomato Salsa and a Mango Emulsion.

Overall, not a satisfying meal, their standard has dropped until they are pan frying their steaks instead of grilling. Go at your own risk.
