Lobsterfest is again, child! PARKROYAL COLLECTION Pickering has relaunched its much-loved seafood extravaganza after a 2-year hiatus and I used to be there for a long-overdue style.
What I attempted at Lime’s Lobsterfest
We arrived proper on time for the Lobsterfest Buffet Dinner (S$138++) at Lime Restaurant, which incorporates limitless beer, chilled juices, gentle drinks, specialty espresso, tea and a contemporary coconut for a welcome drink.
Lime Restaurant is designed round a ‘resort in a backyard’ idea and the luxurious inside is a nice haven. For Lobsterfest, although, I a lot most popular their out of doors setting. With coconut or beer in hand, it was straightforward to lose myself and faux I used to be kicking again on a seaside someplace far, far-off.
My phantasm was helped alongside by the sounds and smells from the alfresco barbecue dwell station the place my favorite chargrilled lobsters had been being ready. Chef Shashi, who was working the grill, was very pleasant and stored piling our plates along with his scrumptious fare.
If Western-style seafood is your factor, you’ll not be disillusioned. That Marinated Grilled Lobster from the BBQ is served with Hollandaise sauce, barbecued smoke hickory, spicy avocado, garlic basil and citrus salsa. There’s additionally Lobster Risotto and Lobster Penne with caviar and chive cream.
Baked Halibut gives you some respite from the lobster deluge and you may return to land for Australian Lamb Chop served with inexperienced bean, chimichurri sauce and garlic chip, Barbecued Pork Rib and Roasted Beef Sirloin.
In case you, very briefly, need to pattern some vegetarian fare, there may be Vegetarian Lasagna and Gratin Potato with Parmesan. In the meantime, Lime’s Japanese choice consists of salmon, taco, hamachi and tuna sashimi platters in addition to assorted sushi and maki rolls.
One in every of my favourites of the night time was Lime’s Signature Lobster Laksa. The lobsters had been large and the steamed meat was superbly tender. We cherished the creaminess of the laksa soup and its genuine spicy kick.
There actually isn’t any substitute for seafood finished proper in a neighborhood dish, particularly right here the place it was ready at a dwell station.
That was doubly confirmed by the Lobster with Chilli Crab Sauce served with golden mantou. This basic dish by no means will get outdated, now does it? I’ve to confess, this ended up being a barely messy affair! *licks fingers*
We additionally cherished the Steamed Lobster With Garlic Paste And Wine (which was generously stuffed) and Black Pepper Lobster. They averted the error too many different locations do of constructing the pepper flavour too sharp. As an alternative, right here it was creamy and fewer intense. Rating!
The restaurant’s idea of serving freshly-prepared pass-around dishes labored completely with the Lobster Cocktail and Spicy Lobster Mango Skewers.
I’ve to say, mango goes very effectively with lobster and spice in the way in which it was ready right here!
Beautiful presentation made the scrumptious Lobster Cocktail brimming with mango, avocado and lobster bits appear much more tasty.
Don’t fear if a wrapped newspaper arrives at your desk— that’s simply one other pass-around dish, the Lobster Roll introduced in a magically quaint manner. Inside, you will see that a creamy mixture of lobster chunks stuffed inside a mildly candy brioche bun. This was beautiful!
Extra seafood got here our manner within the type of Vietnamese Lobster Spring Rolls, Wok-Fried Clam in Garlic And Chilli Sauce and Steamed Seabass with Spicy Bean Paste.
Someplace alongside the road, I by chance stumbled throughout the salad bar and determined to take a break, albeit a quick one, from Lobsterfest correct. Sampling little bits of the Nicoise Salad, Mozzarella Tomato Salad and Tabbouleh Salad, in addition to the choice of cheeses, I used to be impressed.
I had been lulled by the overindulgence of lobster into believing that the buffet was all in regards to the savoury. However, once I wandered round a nook, there it was: a huge fridge with all of the desserts I may need.
I believe the number of the candy treats was equal to, if not higher than, the assortment of seafood at Lobsterfest. As a fan of stability, I give it my kudos. (Okay, superb, it’s as a result of I’ve a candy tooth).
You’ll be able to deal with your self to tiramisu, cherry pie and apple pie, a wide range of chocolate mousse and cheesecake flavours, mango pudding, ice cream and sorbet. With Nationwide Day across the nook, the patriots amongst us could insist on having the durian pengat and pulut hitam.
Oh, sure. Anybody who is aware of me is aware of that I might not have been capable of stroll previous the chocolate fondue fountain. They’d one right here and I made positive it was adequately utilised.
There isn’t a doubt that Lobsterfest was sorely missed as a result of once we visited on Thursday final week, Lime Restaurant was packed. The group included two teams of about 20 individuals every in addition to many smaller tables of revellers. Competition DJs spinning some chill beats helped the temper alongside and the air was abuzz with pleasure.
From Mondays to Wednesdays, the DJs are changed by a roving staff of entertainers, together with stilt walkers, jugglers and mimes. In case you have little ones, these family-oriented performances will likely be a pleasant accompaniment to the superb meals. I would revisit Lobsterfest myself on a type of days simply to expertise that Cirque du Soleil vibe.
