Burger & Lobster, London

For £20 ($40AUD) would you like a whole lobster, lobster roll or a burger? Yes you heard right, £20 for a whole lobster! Funnily enough for a restaurant they don’t have a menu but only these 3 items XD

You can get your lobster grilled or steamed where the lobster is prepared with indentations on the shells. This helps you to break it and get the meat out easier :)

I thought the body had the best bits of lobster but I was wrong – the money is in the claws. Soft, tender lobster meat that’s dunked into a luscious lemon butter sauce with each bite pure awesome. Served with a side of crispy shoestring chips and salad which helped give us a break from all the lobster. P.S there is a free top up on sauce if you run out, you just have to ask ;)

I actually went here twice: the first at Soho store and the other at Knightsbridge. The Soho store was by far the better one with prompt, friendly service and all our lobsters were perfect and easy to get out. The lobsters came out in 5 mins which I’m assuming they cook these ready to be dished out ASAP.

The Knightsbridge store is located on top of a shopping center with the atmosphere not as nice as the Soho store. Our chips were lukewarm, lobster a bit cold and parts of it tasted burnt. What made me the most sad was the claw, the beautiful meat on the claw wasn’t as tender :( The indentations also weren’t as clean and the meat was a lot harder to get out. We were given less sauce and it took around 20 mins for them to top it up but by then our lobster was cold. Service was alright when it was there but most times not a waiter to be seen :/

A bib for damage control

Love the concept because seriously where can you get a whole lobster for £20 ($40AUD)  (at d’arry’s Verandah the lobster bisque entree is $30AUD)? Would probably stick with the Soho store if I were to go again in the future – my friend from the UK only goes here whenever she is London. Must follow the local XD
