It is very impressive to be greeted by king crabs as you walk through the doors of a restaurant, but this is no ordinary restaurant. The walls are literally lined with aquariums of lobster and king crabs dancing around together. It’s quite a magical feeling.
This place is quite bougie. A perfect place to spend with the ones you love at Christmas or any special occasion! Actually, any evening spent here feels like Christmas… To me… 🙂
My boyfriend and I ordered the $98 lobster dinner. This feast is perfect for two. It comes for 2. 5 lbs of lobster, soup, snow pea tips topped with goji berries, rice with lobster and roe and dessert.
Each seafood dish can be prepared in different sauces. Todd and I decided on the most elaborate: Hong Kong style. Shortly after our order the kitchen brings out our lobster, alive straight from the tank.
This may sound cruel; however, many chefs feel that if you can’t handle seeing your protein alive, you don’t deserve to eat it. The soup sided with our Hong Kong lobster is black chicken soup. Very rich and tasty. Aromatic spices, fatty chicken. The rice has crunchy bits of lobster and roe coating it.
Not everything here was fabulous. Snow pea tips are surprisingly unseasoned, tasteless – even with the sugar-sweet plump goji berries.
Lobster is divine. So juicy, coated in mild spice and batter. Salted and peppered green onion, lettuce and fried baby fish top this work of art. Dessert was a surprise. Apologies for the missing picture – it was just a white cup filled with hot black sesame soup. The texture, grainy, but not really sweet – just pure sesame flavour.
