Lobster Claw Meat In Every Roll, Plans To Open More Locations Island wide

James Chan

Chunky Lobsters

Look out for this new building called Oxley Tower along Robinson Road. Skidaddle over to the 2nd floor and you’ll find Chunky Lobsters. Chunky Lobsters is a small eatery but they’re HUGE in popularity with the office people over at the CBD. Expect an average waiting time of 15 to 20 minutes.

The Food

As their name suggests, Chunky Lobsters specializes in lobster rolls. The beauty of their menu is in its simplicity. You only have three different main product offerings to choose from. Also, all of their lobsters are imported all the way from Canada and flown in once a month. These lobsters are then stored in a cold room at -18 Degrees Celsius and delivered to their store 1 to 3 times a week to ensure customers have the freshest lobster experience.

Top up $0.90 cents for a drink with any purchase of their lobster rolls or add $3.90 for a drink and a bowl of lobster bisque!

Oh, and each serving comes with 3 generous rolls of sweet, juicy lobster claws. Need I say more?

Chunky’s Original, $16

For a true lobster experience at Chunky Lobsters, the Chunky’s Original is something not to be missed. The sweet lobster meat is met with a touch of mayo, lemon and something a little extra. I couldn’t really place my finger on it, but when I tried to get them to reveal the ingredients I was met with red tape.

Chunky’s Connecticut, $16

Alternatively, for the same price, you can opt for something more buttery to go with the sweetness of the lobster rolls. Slightly salty and sweet, each roll is pure joy and before you know it, it’s all gone!

Chunky’s Cheezy, $16

This is my favourite and for good reason. I mean, who doesn’t like cheese? (Unless you’re lactose intolerant, then I offer my sincere condolences) They use 4 different types of cheeses that results in a nice stretchy cheese that taste great and makes for a good insta story too!

Lobster Bisque, $3.90

It’s going to come in a small little cup so don’t look disappointed when you receive it (I might have looked a little sad). Taste wise, you have your distinct and wonderfully sweet crustacean flavors swimming around in the little bowl but it felt a tad lighter than the usual explosion of flavors I’m used to when it comes a crab or lobster bisque. Still, $3.90. I’ll drink one of those everyday if I could.

Is the juice worth the squeeze?

You’ll probably need to have your cholesterol levels checked if you eat this everyday but it’s a definite YES from me. There’s probably nowhere else in Singapore where you can find lobster rolls at such low prices.

If Robinson Road is too far for that Lobster craving, catch them at Singapore Garden Festival 2018 from 21st July to 3rd August 2018 @ Gardens By The Bay. They’re going to be one of the food vendors there and YOU CAN EXPECT A QUEUE for sure!

The Market Grill – An American Diner That Serves Amazing Wagyu Steaks And Super Fresh Lobster

James Chan

The Market Grill

The Market Grill might be familiar to many along Telok Ayer Street as they’ve been around for many years. Meaning, they’re definitely doing something right. Designed like an “All American Diner”, The Market Grill exudes a casual atmosphere that serves honest and generous portions of food.

The Food

The secret behind their success? Definitely their charbroiler that utilizes charcoal to grill their meats. This gives their awesome wagyu steaks that nice smoky flavour and locks in the juiciness of the meat while possessing a well-cooked crusty exterior.

Farmer’s Hash, $24

Sweet Potato, Potato, Farmer’s Sausage, Caramelized Onion, Beans And Poached Egg.

The egg was beautifully cooked and after bursting that yolk, all that creamy goodness just spread out evenly throughout the dish. The portion was extremely generous but I honestly feel the price is a little steep, just a little.

Lobster Benedict, $32 / Salmon Benedict, $18

Poached Eggs, Hollandaise Sauce, Capers, Mixed Salad And House Dressing

THEY USE REAL LOBSTER MEAT! And it’s super sweet and fresh too! For $32? Now this is definitely value-for-money.

For its Salmon counterpart, they cure the salmon in house. This results in a less salty smoked salmon compared to what’s readily available in the market.

Lobster Roll, $52

Whole Lobster Deshelled with herbed pommery mayo mounted on a toasted brioche roll, topped with tobiko

This is definitely one of the stars of The Market Grill. They use a super fresh 500g (on average) whole lobster. The tobiko gives an added texture and there’s hints of mustard in every bite.

I’m also told that when it comes to lobster rolls, The Market Grill are the pioneers in Singapore and seeing as how long they’ve been around, I believe them.

Wagyu Tri Tip 200g / 300g , $49 / $65

Grain fed. Red Wine Jus Served With Onion Confit And Mash Potato

Their meats are all imported from Australia and definitely a MUST TRY. It’s so juicy and tender that you can even eat it without the red wine sauce! (Of course, with the red wine sauce, it just elevated the awesomeness of this dish). Like I mentioned above, the trick is their charbroil grill.

Is the juice worth the squeeze?

Yes for two reasons. The lobster and the steak. They’re reasonably priced for premium ingredients (especially that live lobster) and they taste so damn good! I would come back over and over again for sure!
