Red Lobster for Shrimps

The trip to Bubba Gump for shrimps did not satisfy my shrimps craving so when I saw the advert banner for Red Lobster showing an appetizer named Shrimp Trio, I was sold immediately.

Shrimp Trio - MYR36.90++ (MYR43 nett after 10% service charge and 6% GST). Grilled shrimp with pineapple mango salsa, sweet chili shrimp and golden fried shrimp. Good effort trying to present it well.

Of the three, I only like the Grilled shrimp with pineapple mango salsa. For the other two, the shrimp taste was covered by the batter and sauce and I find them a bit too salty.

Since my spouse does not eat cheese and butter, I ordered the lunch set of Spicy Tiger Prawn Pasta - MYR28.90++ (MYR33.70 nett) to share with him thinking that spicy means no cheese and no butter but he still detected the taste of butter so I had to use my container to take most of the pasta home to eat later.

The menu describes it as "Tiger prawns and mixed vegetables served on a bed of linguine in a spicy, light and savory sauce." The tiger prawns are fresh enough but the pasta is cooked until it is too soft so it did not taste like pasta to me at all, taste just like normal yellow flat noodles.

The lunch set includes a bowl of mushroom soup and a glass of Lipton ice tea.

Total Bill for 2 is MYR76.70 nett and my craving for shrimps is still not fulfilled.
