Steamed Lobster

We went to Pince & Pints to celebrate a birthday and we ordered 3 meals to be shared by 4 persons. On their food menu, there are only 5 choices. Every meal has the same price which is MYR158++ (6% GST and 6% service charge) that is MYR177.53 nett. The menu states that "Each dish uses 1 whole live wild-caught lobster of approx 600g". Pince & Pints is from SG and they have more choices in their SG menu.

The 5 choices here are:
1. Live whole lobster (includes chef salad, straight cut fries, herbed butter sauce)
a. Grilled
or
b. Steamed

2. The Lobster Roll (includes chef salad, straight cut fries, garlic aioli)
- all the online reviews I read recommend this lobster roll.

3. Chili Lobster (includes fried mantou, homemade fresh tomato & chilli sauce)

4. Lobster Noodles (includes wok fried lobster, egg noodle, ginger and scallion)
- this dish is only available in the KL outlet and not in the SG outlet. The online reviews that I read prefer eating Sang Har Yee Mee instead so I did not order this dish.

Steamed live whole lobster. The lobster meat is tender and juicy. If you are here for the lobsters, then ordering the live whole lobster dish either steamed or grilled is a must. I will be back to try the grilled option for the next birthday celebration.

With two claws of course.

Comparison with my hand

Total price for 4 pax.

  7. LOL to TM's comment.. gave him a fright indeed! LOL... well, not surprising since lobsters are so expensive.. That reminded me of one fresh lobster we bought at the fishing village, it cost 13 pounds.. so it is also around RM80 plus but it was 1 kg heavy.. Dint really know how to cook it so we just boiled it and use the water to cook the noodles.. :)
