I am a huge fan of seafood and when Pince & Pints opened its door few months back with many positive reviews on Instagram, I decided to treat my family to a lobster feast!
Our first attempt to visit the restaurant fell on a wrong day. Took a cab to the place only to find that we went on its off day! On the second attempt I made sure that it was opened that day. Haha.
So here we are, at Pince & Pints! Finally!! I have heard of the long queues and some diners have waited as long as two hours, so I got my sister to be there earlier and take a queue number. By the time the rest of us reached, it was only a 15 minutes wait to be seated.
Just tightened my braces a couple of days before the feast, was so afraid that it would be too painful to eat but luckily it was alright.
We were given the menu and drinks while waiting outside. What was outstanding was that the waiters were all eager to serve and explain the menu to us. Thumbs up for good service! There were only three items on the menu. Four, if you count Grilled Lobster and Steamed Lobster as different.
Finally we settled and the food arrived promptly. I chose the Lobster Roll as it was their star dish. The reviews were all raving about the yummy bread and even though I had very high expectations for it, the taste didn't disappoint me at all! The bread was soft yet a little crispy, fragrant and buttery! Love it very much! The bread was stuffed with generously huge chunks of lobster meat. Personally I am not a big fan of chilled lobster, so maybe a warm version would be perfect! :)
For my next visit, I would definitely order the Grilled Lobster! My sister had it and I was so envious! At first I thought it wouldn't be very big but actually the lobsters served here are huge! Every dish here uses 600g of a whole live lobster. I really liked the texture of the lobster meat!
My dad had the chilli lobster and it was our family's favourite that night. It was Singapore chilli crab style, but with lobsters instead. I feel that not many places do the sauce well, but Pince & Pints did a great job! It has just the right amount of sweetness. After dipping our mantou, we all dipped our fries in the sauce because we still couldn't get enough of it.
Mum chose the Steamed Lobster. The meat was fresh and sweet, good for those who like the original taste of lobsters.
It was an enjoyable dinner and I recommend Pince & Pints to all lobster lovers! The lobsters served here definitely has good quality!
