Kitson’s Birthday Surprise | The Clan Restaurant

We managed to remain below radar till execution day!
Kitson was pleasantly surprised to see presents and cards on his desk.

The Singing Hippo Birthday Card must be pretty Impressive,
since Kitson thought it was a card picked up from stores.
(My last minute effort did pay off handsomely!)

The highlight of the day is dinner at The Clan Restaurant.

Nested amidst the city central and within walking distance of monumental Chinatown, The Clan Restaurant sits quietly along conserved shophouses of Bukit Pasoh.

Upon arrival to The Clan Restaurant, we were ushered upstairs into a quiet corner of the restaurant. The lush interior puts us in a romantic mood instantaneously.

We started off dinner with complimentary lime sorbet, which saw James gulping one down and asking for MORE!

It was then swiftly followed up with the Chef’s Starter; which includes Scallop, Chawamushi & Prawn Sushi. I couldn’t quite figure out if I was having dinner or enjoying an art exhibition. The presentation of each dish is extremely exquisite!

Kids were happy to know that there was a kiddy menu catered specially for them. The earthy mushroom soup proved to be an excellent starter! The kids totally loved it! Delightfully slurped till the very last drop!

For cold dish, I had Beef Carpaccio with Truffle Teriyaki & Horseradish Sauce while Kitson indulged on the Alaskan King Crab with Seasonal Greens in Homemade Karashi Dressing.

Having traveled the world, it is hard to impress Kitson with food. But, the birthday boy was pretty impressed by the food quality and impeccable service!

For side dishes, Kitson had the Steamed Razor Clam, Salmon Trout Roe Drizzled with Japanese Sauce while I savor the Herb Crusted Mushroom Escargot.

I had the Seafood Soup with Pernod Dash, while Kitson’s Cepes Mushroom with Truffle Paste got hijacked by Hiroshi!

We continued on with our gastronomical journey with main courses. Kitson had Green Lobster Crustacean Oil Pasta while I am pleasantly surprised by the succulent Prime Beef Short Ribs on Hoba Leaf w Peppercorn Sauce on Lava Stone.

Hiroshi had Teriyaki Chicken, Sophia had Tempura Fish​ and James is happy with whatever that was thrown his way as long as he is in charged of his own cutleries.

Then came the beautiful surprise.
Kitson was astounded to be presented with a slice of Tiramisu with personalized Birthday greetings. Definitely service beyond expectation!

Ending our 6 course dinner on an extremely sweet note.
Kitson and the kids had the signature Chocolate Lava with Homemade Gelato while I satisfy my dessert cravings with Triple Espresso Crème Brûlée.

For the high level of impeccable service,
I personally felt that the meals are reasonably priced.
$69.80++ for a 6 course meal,
and $18.80++ for a 3 course kid’s meal.

Highly recommended for first dates, anniversaries, birthdays
or any occasion to impress that someone special!

Kitson’s Birthday Surprise | The Prelude

It wasn’t easy planning for a surprise party when the birthday boy has been on leave all week. We had to scurry at every opportunity whenever Kitson was out running errands to get things done.

THE BIRTHDAY PRESENT:
Tough fight between the Klipsch x4i, x7i and x11i. But after testing the earphones, the SEXY Klipsch x7i earphones undeniably emerge as winner! I personally felt that it was the most ergonomically designed among the 3. This is definitely considered a splurge. But for the responsible father and loving husband who faithfully puts his family before himself, Kitson totally deserves it!

The birthday present was the easiest to settle.
But, even so I was nearly caught in the act while wrapping it! That was a close shave.

THE BIRTHDAY TREAT:
My original plan was to indulge ourselves with buffet at Shangarila; The Line.
But since, we’ll be celebrating my mother-in-law’s birthday a day before Kitson’s at Buffet Town. It would be an overkill to have buffet 2 days in a row!

Feeling pretty lost, I send out an SOS signal call on Singapore Mom Bloggers Facebook Page asking for suggestions. The girls were ever so helpful! I was then swamped with a whole list of great restaurant to choose from! I decided to go with CherieLadie’s suggestion of The Clan Restaurant.

Made my reservations online. Got a confirmation email from the restaurant almost immediately. And the restaurant even call me a day before to confirm my reservations and acceded to my special requests. Great Service!
