Recommended fusion fine dining @ The Clan Restaurant

The Clan Restaurant
Address: 1 Selegie Road #02-01, POMO, Singapore 188306

The Clan Restaurant - Nice deco and ambience
Few years back, we tried Dozo which is a Japanese-French fusion restaurant located at Valley Point Shopping Center along River Valley Road and fell in love with it. It was priced reasonably for the wonderful food, service and ambience for a 6 or 7 course set.

However, last year, when we wanted to revisit Dozo, we realised that it was closed! After researching online, we found a similar recommendation by Hungry Go Where - The Clan Restaurant. The standard of the food, service and ambience was comparable to Dozo! We felt so satisfied after meal there.

We went for the weekend 5 course lunch which was priced at $$49.80++ which we think is very very worth it given the quality of the food and service.

Upon entering the restaurant, we were given the welcome drink - cranberry and apple ice.
From the side dish, to soup, to the main dish and dessert, they have a wide variety for customers to choose from. You can find the menu here. But do note that the actual menu might differ from the website one as they changes the menu from time to time.

Chef selection: (from left) prawns with some sauce, scallop with lobster sauce and foie gras chawanmushi. I especially love the scallop with lobster sauce. The lobster sauce was so nice! I wanted to lick the plate hahaha.
Next comes the side dishes, they were perfect!!

Herbs and mushroom escargot. It was so tasty and fragrance. I only managed to eat one escargot coz hubby ate it all without leaving more for me!  >.<
Kurobuta pork belly confit with passion fruit sauce. The waiter told us that the pork belly was sous vide for 12 hours before serving. The pork belly was so tender!! And the passion fruit sauce which tasted sour sweet makes the pork belly dun feel oily at all.

Pan seared foie gras with toasted bread. OMG! This is one of the nicest and most 香 foie gras I have ever eaten. The foie gras was really nicer than those which I had at other restaurants or cafes. Super yummy!

Next comes the soup.

Salmon miso soup infused with Yuzu. Hubby loved the special taste of this soup. It felt refreshing as it has a tinge of the yuzu taste.

But I loved my seafood bisque more! It a whole mouthful of seafood flavour when u drink the soup!
The waiter recommended 2 other soups which were their specialties, mushroom soup and ginseng chicken consomme. Ok, we will try these 2 soups the next time we come.

Next up are the mains!

Miso cod with risotto. Both hubby and I so so so love this dish! The cod was so tender and tasted so nice with the miso taste. The risotto was very well cooked with the miso taste as well. I will really give this dish 100 marks. The waiter told us that this was a new addition to the menu, previously it was baked cod with some stuff which i can't remember. I'm really glad that they have this in their new menu!

Prime beef short ribs on Hoba leaf with peppercorn sauce on hot stone. The beef is so tender and I think because of the Hoba leaf, it has a very fragrance smell when u put the cooked beef into your mouth.
Initially we were afraid that the beef will be overcooked as we couldn't eat all the beef slices faster than it was cooked. but no! The prime beef was so premium that even if it's fully cooked, it's still very tender! 
Chocolate molten lava cake with ice cream. The molten lava cake though dun look very nice, was really soft and the warm chocolate lave flows out. it's so yummy!

Green tea tiramisu. This was quite special to me. Tiramisu with green tea taste and pistachio bits on top for flavour. It's special and nice!

We also ordered a pot of chamomile tea and a pot of peppermint tea at $5 each. Do note that the 5 course set do not include drinks.
Lastly, a very satisfied me! And both hubby and I are so glad that we found The Clan Restaurant! We will definitely come back. Highly recommended for anniversary or any celebrations. Thumb up! 
My verdict: 10/10 *Hooray*
