Indulge in a selection of gourmet delicacies that have been handpicked this Lunar New Year (2017) at the 10 at Claymore (located within the Pan Pacific Orchard). The Spring Time Oyster Rhapsody will feature five varieties of freshly-shucked oysters alongside prominent dishes that are often consumed during the Chinese New Year.
Lunar New Year celebrations in Singapore often start with the traditional tossing of good fortune (more commonly known as Yu Sheng or Lo Hei).
Apparently the Fatt Choy with Sea Cucumber is part of the buffet spread (probably on a rotational basis) between now and 28 February 2017 but I did not see it in the main area while I was there last week so you might want to call to check if the dish is available.
If you are a fan of thick and flavourful soups, the Superior Fish Maw Soup features a thick broth that gets its colour from the pumpkin.
Fish is often associated to wealth and abundance - it is therefore common to find fresh fish on the table during the Lunar New Year celebrations.
There was also a small selection of roast meats while I was there - roast pork and char siew to be exact and I guess these too will be offered on a rotational basis (I do not remember seeing chicken that evening). The flavours in the roast pork were quite pronounced but the crispy bit on the top was slightly disappointing (probably because it is sitting on a buffet table).
10 at Claymore is one of those places that are popular amongst oyster-lovers and they take this quite seriously by serving up five different varieties of oysters. In fact, they are freshly-shucked in front of your eyes when you order them so you can definitely expect them to be fresh.
The Spring Time Oyster Rhapsody is offered at Pan Pacific Orchard's 10 at Claymore between now and 28 February and lunch buffets start at S$48++ per Adult while dinner is priced from S$88++. For dining enquiries and reservations, please call 6831 6686 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
This was an invited Media Tasting session, though all views expressed are my own.
