I noticed that they don’t have many customers, even during peak lunch/ dinner hours because when we arrived at 7:00pm (prime dinner time), there were only 3-4 occupied tables.
I saw the Lobster section of the menu before on my previous visit with Meta Knight (post below) and I’ve always wanted to come back to try it. So without hesitation, I chose to share this with Kirbro (my bro) as our entree. We chose the Combo for 2 ($49.95) and the “Baked Portuguese Style Lobster w/ E-Fu Noodle“. The combo also comes with a Prawn Fruit Salad, Lobster Soup, dessert, and a beverage.
The prawn salad came first and both Kirbro and I received a plate. The salad essentially consists of three prawns, cubes of honeydew and cantaloupe, and Japanese mayo. The combination of ingredients may seem odd if you have never tried it, but it actually tastes pretty good together.
I ordered hot chocolate (right) and Kirbro ordered the hk style coffee. Both were good and nothing special.
The lobster soup came with three pieces of garlic bread for the two of us (weird number as we can’t split that) and it was a bit disappointing. It was too salty for my liking and it was missing the real lobster taste. I really hope they didn’t use msg or lobster flavoured powder to make the soup.
On the other hand, they did have a few pieces of shrimp in the soup. But… eh, this soup was still not very good overall.
When our main course arrived, all of us just stared. It had such a cool presentation! The lobster itself was not very large (probably 1.5lbs) but it was more than enough for the both of us due to all the previous courses.
Heh heh… does it freak you out to stare the lobster in the face? 😀
Anyways, the E-fu noodles that it came with were too soft (past al dente) but the Portuguese sauce that accompanied it was great. It had a mild curry flavour with a hint of coconut.
The lobster was first flash fried (don’t know if that’s a real term) and then baked. They were plump, quite juicy, and not overcooked so it’s a thumbs up for me.
At the end of our meal, we got our “dessert” which was coconut mousse. I personally disliked it but the rest of my family who had a bite thought it was good.
- they have cheap specials from Monday to Thursday I believe
- huge free parking area in front
- some dishes are affordable and worth it, but some are not
