Unfortunately, the phenomenon of the Lobster Anticlimax happened to us that day. The porridge is like your Fish Porridge where the Lobster broth is poured over rice. It tasted very good, but the Lobster taste was not strong enough. It could well have been a very good Seafood Porridge and we would not have known the difference. Still it was quite enjoyable albeit expensive for a bowl of porridge. However, I did derive half the value of the Lobster by taking some really nice pictures! 4/5
The Lobster Mee Sua did not save the day either. The gravy was nice but again it did not adequately capture that Crustacean flavour that I so crave for. The Mee Sua also tasted a bit “floury” that day. 3.5/5
The restaurant’s Head Chef has won several Gold Medals at the Singapore Food Festival and the restaurant has garnered several rave reviews from the newspapers, so I still suspect that the Lobster porridge and Mee Sua could be much better. However, with the four of us paying $170 for the two Lobster dishes, two meat dishes and one Tofu dish, it is certainly not something that we would like to try again at a whim. Still the Restaurant made it to this blog because, well, it is about Lobsters and they have a very special place in my heart.
Perhaps our readers who have had good experiences there can share their positive experiences with us?
