Pan Pacific Orchard Singapore’s 10 at Claymore has done it yet again; Chef Andy and his team have impressed us with yet another buffet spread that is bound to leave you salivating with anticipation.
This time, Chef Andy and his team are giving their all as the restaurant will serve its last buffet on 31 March 2018. Pan Pacific Orchard, Singapore will close for redevelopment from 1 April 2018, and will continue to be managed by Pan Pacific Hotels Group. That’s right, we will definitely miss our feasts at 10 at Claymore; it has been so many years and it feels like home to us.
Meanwhile, we sure look forward to the upcoming line-up which will feature ten of the all-time signature dishes in the last decade. For the month of March, enjoy a repertoire of Chef Andy’s signatures all in one seating—there will be Australian Wagyu Tomahawk Beef, Alaskan King Crab, Rack of Lamb, Pan Seared Canadian King Scallops and some of his classic Penang dishes such as Air Itam Assam Laksa, Char Koay Teow and Spicy Tiger Prawn Noodles.

We have had the privilege of trying many stellar buffet dinners in Singapore, but this is one super epic buffet dinner at an unbelievable price; you’d be sorry if you missed it. From now until 31 Mar 2018, simply quote ‘ladyironchef’ upon making your reservations and you get to enjoy the very special price of S$105++ for 2 pax for this All-time Top 10 Eats At Claymore dinner buffet.
Deal of the year though we are only into the 2nd month of 2018? We don’t doubt that.
AUSTRALIAN WAGYU TOMAHAWK STEAK
For those of you who do not know, the Tomahawk Steak is an on-the-bone steak cut from the fore-rib with the bone still intact. The very long bone is then French-trimmed, leaving a beautiful presentation of the steak.
Chef Andy’s Australian Tomahawk Wagyu Steak is roasted slowly before being seared to a wonderful medium doneness, leaving a crisp caramelised crust; the meat comes with the right amount of fat, with its juices locked in thanks to the reverse-searing technique, and seasoned with a little dose of truffle oil to enhance the taste and aroma.
SLOW ROASTED RACK OF LAMB
Lamb is not appreciated by many due to a certain pungent smell and its gamey taste. However, this wonderfully grilled lamb rack has little to none of its pungency, and we would recommend everyone to give it a try.
Chef Andy gets his lamb from New Zealand. The tenderness of it alone speaks volumes about how well prepared it is. Perfectly seasoned and moist with every bite, you just need a glass of Shiraz (which isn’t part of the buffet, but you have the option of ordering it à la carte) to complete your experience.
ALASKAN KING CRAB LEGS
With a fresh and unique sweetness to it and a delicate soft texture with every bite, these Alaskan King Crab Legs are totally worth getting your hands messy over.
This premium seafood certainly does not come cheap, and to enjoy them on a free-flow basis in a buffet? Yes, we are definitely in.
PAN SEARED CANADIAN KING SCALLOPS
Loved by many, scallops are not only tasty but also a healthy option.
These Canadian King Scallops are succulent, firm, and mildly chewy, and completely packed with flavours. We found ourselves enticed by the fragrant aroma alone and enjoyed the rich creamy taste of it to the fullest.
Oysters in a buffet is usually freshly shucked, and rarely you would find them cooked for the lineup. 10 At Claymore’s dinner buffets are hugely known for their freshly shucked oysters, but expect something different this time around. Chef Andy has new tricks up his sleeves.
Plump and juicy and baked with a housemade chilli mayonnaise that is rich and creamy, these baked oysters are definitely up our alley. You would find that the taste of the sauce is very similar to nacho cheese, but with a spice that accents the sauce with an Asian twist.
BLACK PEPPER CRAB
This is another crab in the buffet spread that you do not want to miss out on. Get your hands messy again with the black pepper crab that boasts an incredible flavour due to the spices used in its marination which complements the natural sweetness of the crab.
PENANG CHAR KOAY TEOW
Chef Andy is from Penang and he does Penang food really well. Trust him to whip up a dish of authentic Penang Char Koay Teow; we are unabashedly huge fans.
The distinct wok hei has won us time and time again. We know we are definitely going to miss Chef Andy’s Char Koay Teow. And if you haven’t tried it, this is your chance to go all out.
PENANG PRAWN NOODLES
And if you are a fan of prawn noodles soup, try Chef Andy’s Penang-style Spicy Tiger Prawn Noodles.
The broth is simmered over low heat for many hours with premium tiger prawns, resulting in a full-bodied soup that is mildly spicy and comes with a strong fragrance of everyone’s favourite red-fleshed seafood.
AIR ITAM ASSAM LAKSA
Assam Laksa is quite an acquired dish but those who really love it will know how to appreciate Chef Andy’s rendition. It is essentially Nyonya-style hot and sour fish noodles.
The Air Itam Assam Laksa is prepared with fresh Barramundi fillet and the Assam paste used in this dish were all hand-carried back from Penang by Chef Andy himself. Zero doubts that what you are getting is the most authentic bowl you can ever find in Singapore.
Last but certainly not least, the 10th item of the line-up is the Braised Pork. Prepared with a traditional recipe that Chef Andy brought from his home in Penang, this braised dish—better known as Babi Pongteh—is robust in flavours and best enjoyed with a simple bowl of white rice.
Premium Kurobuta pork is used, and the end result is a fattier version that is very much fuller in flavours.
