This restaurant has been really popular since it opened at Duxton Hill. I finally had a chance to visit with a friend recently.
They have some new additions to their menu, which are truffle based, which I tried.
Along with food, they also have cocktails which I also looked forward to.
Here are the highlights of our meal:
- Truffle Lobster Roll: $68++. A new addition to their menu. The Boston lobster is cut into chunks and topped with truffle caviar and truffle shavings. Its served with a side of salad, straight-cut fries and homemade truffle sauce. The homemade truffle sauce had a texture of ‘thick mushroom soup’. A nice sauce to go with the dish.
The salad had watermelon cubes in it which was nice.
- Grilled Live Whole Boston Lobster: $58. The lobster is halved and grilled. It’s meaty and juicy. A shell cracker and meat extractor are also provided for each diner, so it was easy to extract the meat out from the shell and the claws. This came with a chef salad, straight-cut fries and herbed butter sauce.
We asked for a side of garlic aioli sauce as a dip for the fries. It’s good.
Here are the cocktails that I tried:
- Burning Lobster: $12. This is unique.
It comes as two shots – 1 glass of Resposado Tequila with a blend of Cajun spices; 1 glass of home-made chilli lobster sauce (which was the chaser). First you down the tequila in 1 go, then down the chilli lobster sauce immediately. Yes, it sounds weird but its good. The tequila will have a burning sensation on the throat, but the chilli lobster sauce will sooth it right away. One wasn’t enough, and I had to have another one.
Good stuff, recommended!
- 500 Days of Summer: $22. This was a refreshing cocktail. Served in a tall glass, it’s made with gin, fresh lemon and lime, homemade Cantaloupe soda and garnished with fresh mint. Easy to drink.
A good meal and it’s a meal that I will definitely remember for some time.
