Lobster roll x grilled live lobster; both served with mesclun salad, shoestring fries and herbed butter sauce. Both dish was simply delectable; the grilled lobster came off nicely with a gentle tug and the flesh was juicy and fragrant from the charcoal grill. The lobster removed from it's shell, steamed and marinated then stuffed into a pan-fried brioche bun was so good I polished it off in 10 mins. The chilli lobster was more towards the ketchup-y side so it was more sweet then spicy but nonetheless I still gobbled all the mantou dipped in the luscious sauce (and almost ordered another 5 more). For $48 (before gst and service charge) a dish I felt that it was pretty reasonable because the dishes were all well executed and the portion was also comparable to those seafood restaurants for the amount you pay. They also provide a range of tea, alcoholic drinks as well as coffee. We both ordered a cup of tea ($5 each). Service provided by the staffs were also impeccable - alert (constantly refilling your water/changing your plates), warm & friendly. Would definitely be back soon!
Wagyu Beef from Shinzo!
One of the Omakase dishes introduced by former Chef Lawrence Chia who has set his standards high in presentations of food & quality served from his heart.
Wagyu Beef is one of the dish I would come back for, having to say the quality matches the price really well. Do not demand if you're looking for something cheap, it's a price to pay for quality food 😍
Not many people knows that Thailand is really good at making their fish/crab/prawn cakes, and perhaps with the myriads of items on their menu, such "kiddish" or "cheap" items are overlooked. I think Nara's fish cake is really good and at $13.90 for 6 piece it's really really good! Love their sweet chilli, which we added lime for the extra tanginess!
Back for the soup version because in all honesty, the soup here rules! Virtually opaque from brewing the prawns and other secret good ingredients for what I suspect is forever (ok, I may be exaggerating somewhat), it is one of the best around in my humble opinion.
The soup and fresh mega-sized prawns are what make this stall's version so popular. Only thing is the auntie who takes your order can be grumpy and sometimes the queue goes on forever. Best to go early when the stall opens for business.
Catch up session over food and drinks. Always a wonderful pairing.
