Don't miss the irresistible Lobster Roll — generous chunks of succulent lobster meat coated gently in a garlic sauce and stuffed in a lightly toasted sweet bun. Unlike its Singapore counterpart, this KL outpost has an extra dish created for the local tastebuds called the Lobster Noodles, a rendition of the popular Chinese dish 'sang har mee'. This is the kind of place that's just great for a casual date night or a fun night out with friends, so loosen up and grab a cocktail! Oh, don't forget to make reservations, just in case.
