Hotel food doesnt come cheap so we're thankful for our staycay dining credits! Otherwise, we probably wouldnt have splurged on this exorbitantly priced lobster nasi lemak at $38.00++. Then again, having tried this, the husband and I concluded that it's a dish we probably wouldnt mind paying for!

The lobster came with fried bits crumbly bits on the edges - a sign that it's been deep fried somehow with pretty good batter. The lobster meat retained its sweetness and was succulent as expected (for the price and the hotel's rep haha). Rumor has it that the Fullerton hotel executes their Asian food exceptionally well and I have to agree that the nasi lemak is nothing but ordinary. The rice was infused with strong lemak-ness, but without the oily or cloying feel. The husband polished off every bit without difficult (nor guilt). Despite not being a fan of rice or coconut rice for that matter, I reached out for a second mouthful because the nasi lemak rice + sambal chilli combi was simply too addictive. On the side, there was the appetite-whetting achar (tangy and crisp), as well as highly addictive fried peanut and ikan bilis. The sambal was sweet and spicy, and so so so good that we asked for not one but 2 more servings to have with the rice. The only 'meh' item was the egg which also expectedly paled in comparison to the taste of its counterparts on the plate. Considering 1 whole lobster dish is easily priced at $38-$45 ++ at mid tier food establishments, it's a pretty easy decision to part with $38.00++ for the lobster nasi lemak pictured here!

Octie tail tasted as good as it looks. Nothing close to rubbery (phew), served alongside some purΓ©e and almond flakes

It's a ..... puny roll stuffed with Lobster served alongside truffle fries. The broiche bun was on point, lobster flesh was succulent and sweet, well accompanied with a good portion of mayo. The truffle fries were executed well - each shoestring was crispy and yums. The only gripe was the small-ish portion of lobster roll. You do have to stuff yourself with the fries to fill yourself up!

Sweet, juicy, chunky marinated lobster meat in fluffy brioche. Served with really really crispy thin fries - so crispy that it remained β€˜crunchy’ even after an hour into the meal. β€˜Also comes w side salad, topped generously with parmesan shavings. Oh, and a Aladdin-lamp of buttery sauce!

Pretty teeny portion for a carnivore. The Chef made up for the slightly teeny portion with some really amazingly crispy thin fries! Comes with cheesy salad by the side, topped generously with parmesan shavings

A picture speaks a thousand words - need I say more?
Fresh, luxe ingredients encased in pillowy, buttery toasted brioche. Heavenly.

Note: The luxe version is unlike the original lobster roll that came with fries and salad by the side. This version comes with just the roll, w/o the sides!

A really well baked dish of creamy fish and veggies beneath

Freshest from the sea 🌊 &&& really expensive, my $$$ went with the waves too

It looks bigger than pictured! The entire leg was grilled right before our eyes, served with lemon wedges and some really great sauce which is kept light to retain the freshness and sweetness of the crab πŸ¦€

The world’s your oyster when Happy hour goes at $9++ for a drink and oysters at 3++ each! Ps: The dipping sauce which came along w the oysters were really really refreshing - tangy & whets the appetite!

In addition to crab rolls, Chunky Crabs serves their signature lobster rolls too. Chunks of succulent lobster (pic speaks!) coated in rich lemon butter and sandwiched between hotdog buns. Could have tasted way better it came along in a lightly buttered + toasted brioche! Served w a serving of cassava chips (tho I would have preferred fries). A rather decent meal and a considerably value price. Note: Do not expect the same kind of wow from the lobster rolls you get from Pince and Pints tho!

My chubby cheeks speak of my love in uncovering new bites & savouring β€˜em all!
