Prime Beef Short Ribs on Hoba Leaf
with Peppercorn Sauce on Lava Stone
What is your best dining experience that pop up in your mind now? I would say this is my best .. Saw a lot of fantastic reviews online and decided to have a visit to The Clan Restaurant and I truly love it.
The Clan Restaurant claims to serve modern European cuisine, though Asian influences are evident within many of their dishes as well. Prices are not cheap with 5-Course Set Lunches and 6-Course Set Dinners going for $42.80++ and $62.80++ respectively, but definitely affordable given the quality and quantity of food. Ala carte is available as well, with mains at $20+ and all other courses at the $10+ range but I would suggest going for the sets which works out to be way more affordable. You wouldn’t want to miss out on any of the courses anyway.
I was served with a complimentary strawberry shooters and it was refreshing to the taste buds because of its sourness.
Then I had the Chef's starter that consists scallop with truffle foam, deconstructed prawn sushi and I forgot what is that soup base thingy =.='' Something like creamy foie gras soup
I had this for my cold dish , the Beef Carpaccio, Truffle Mustard Salad, with Truffle Teriyaki and Horseradish Sauce. I enjoyed the thin slices of marbled raw beef very much, and thought it went well with a light dab of the sweet teriyaki sauce and truffle mustard (which tasted like mayo).
New style of Sashimi for me which is a re-invention of the usual Japanese raw fish, with Hamachi drizzled with Ponzu Sauce & Orange Salsa. Kind of refreshing and makes an enjoyable starter with the blend of tastes. This is really good!
The Kurobuta Pork Belly Confit with Pork Cracker & Passion Fruit Sauce fared well in terms of moist tender meat, but failed in terms of crackling. I initially expected the skin will be more crispy >v<
The Cepes Mushroom with Truffle Paste from The Clan however, chock full of flavour yet not overly thick, retaining a smooth consistency that just warms your whole body as you sip on it. It’s heaven in a bowl, one of the best mushroom soups around surely. I would go back just for this..
The Crab Bisque Cappuccino was served in a wine glass with a Prawn Twister, a rather frothy soup that strikes a smooth balance – very rich texture , not recommend for those who prefer something light.
The Clan’s Restaurant recommended main is the 48 Hours Beef Short Ribs served on top on Hoba Leaf with Pepperorn Sauce on a hot Lava Stone. Presentation is good as it is not what I imagined. The beef is extremely tender so chewing is kept at a minimal.This is the best Main I ever had so far . Mmmm .... Super good!
The staff recommended this Chocolate Lava with Homemade Gelato to me while I'm still not sure about which dessert should I go for. No regrets as this is Awesome! The chocolate Lava is not too sweet or too rich for me, Just nice and perfect to go with the gelato.
I also had this Triple Espresso Crème Brûlée . Creme Brulee always my first choice when come into dessert. I would say the texture is good but I would not prefer a creme brulee with coffee taste >.<
Here it is my best dining experience! I found myself will visit to The Clan restaurant again someday with buddies as I miss the food already haha!
