hi! that's me eating baby eels above!

welcome to mY thoughts on the various meals i devour. food is mY passion and it has consumed me (the irony). my goal is to build an empire (food related of course) and ultimately, world domination! just kidding, well not about the empire. i want to one day share mY culinary experience with the rest of the world in the form of exciting, delectable consumption and not just for sustenance.

i would love to hear about your food adventures (or anything else you'd like to share with me)! feel free to email me at hello@hashtagfatmY.com

burger & lobster (plus häagen dazs)

Posted on 28 July, 2014 by in burgers, dessert, food review, lobster, seafood | 0 comments

happy birthday wing! we went out for dinner a couple of weeks ago to celebrate our friend wing’s birthday. one of our favourite places to eat at is burger & lobster in their soho branch. there’s always a wait for a table but luckily for us, as we were a group of six, we were able to make a reservation.

there’s no food menu, only drinks. why? because they only have three dishes on offer; 1. beef burger, 2. lobster (either steamed or grilled, your choice) and 3. lobster roll (mY fave!).  all are priced at £20 and comes with a side salad, fries and butter sauce (go for the smelly garlic butter sauce!). not a bad price to pay for lobster but i can’t say much for the beef burger. no one ordered the burger because it’s not great which is very surprising because this chain is owned by the russians who brought us goodman, the steak chain. so lobster it was! between the six of us, we all ordered options 2 and 3.

i went for the lobster roll – surprise surprise. it’s the best thing on the menu! the lobster is already peeled and stuffed over the brim of the roll smothered in mayonnaise (but not too much that it becomes sickly). the brioche is surprisingly not too filling either. it’s so light and crispy and soft all in one. squeeze the lemon and drizzle some garlic butter all over it and you’ll have something that tastes like what i would imagine heaven to be like!

lobster roll

it’s quite funny eating in there because it’s always full of east asian people very much like ourselves! it’s because you can’t find good lobster priced at or under £20 anywhere else! we love our seafood, especially lobster which is a luxury.

definitely invest the time to queue up and eat here. i would personally avoid the burger, this place is definitely known for its lobster experience.

we were absolutely stuffed but still managed to find the time to visit häagen dazs in leicester square for dessert. it can be pretty busy over the weekends and is over priced where ice cream is concerned but definitely worth eating in and catching up with friends in a casual environment. as expensive as it may be, the photos in the menu are so appetising! how could you refuse???
