[Review] Loobie Lobster


 Following suit from Holycow Steak, the man behind it all opened another venture some time ago, Loobie Lobster. As the name suggests, they specialise in lobsters. Sticking to the same concept, Loobie Lobster sells higher end food at a fraction of the price you'd normally pay for.

The restaurant is extremely tiny, allowing only 7 tables; be prepared to queue if you decided to break your fast there. Or like us, arrive at 8PM when the crowd has died down. With minimalistic no-frills design, it helps cut costs to pass it on to the customers.

Lobster Platter 1/2KG - 137thousand

Mix Platter (Lobster & Shrimp) - 125thousand

The 1/2KG Lobster Platter come with half a kilo of lobster as the name suggests, whereas the mix platter comes with half of a lobster and a 'udang galah' big prawn. Both sets comes with a side of rice and fried calamari, you could swap the rice for more calamari, as they were delish! Fried and seasoned excellently.

For the price that comes with it, it was totally worth it. The lobsters were fresh, sweet and juicy; the only minor complain is that they weren't uniformly seasoned. 2 out of the 5 set we ordered is way too salty to eat on its own.  The prawn is equally juicy, and if you're into innards, remember to suck on the head. :)

We could only sing praises whilst eating, but however, as soon as we sat on the car, we knew that we won't be returning anytime soon. For our throats were burning, the effect of MSG was pretty evident on us, which is a major turnoff.

In a nutshell, Loobie Lobster is worth a try, but not so much a second chance.
