Yeah, as you can tell, the pokemon GO fever is catching on Explodingbelly as well. HAHA!
Well, well.. Pince and Pints are best known for their lobsters and their very limited menu of just… Lobsters. Besides Luke’s Lobsters in Japan, our favorite place to go for lobsters has got to be Pince and Pints. The freshness of their lobsters and how simply they’ve managed to make the lobster the star of every dish is unrivaled.
I visited them earlier this year for their unforgettable TRUFFLE LOBSTER ROLL, which is STILL on their menu by the way. I still crave for it every now and then. On this third visit to P&P, I tried 2 of their limited and seasonal offerings. Well, instead of having the lobsters as its star of the dish, these 2 dishes included the lobster to seemingly atasify the otherwise usual local favorites.
I hope this post doesn’t come too late, because you have ONE MORE WEEK to catch their LOBSTER NOODLES ($58++). This is created in commemoration of their SECOND ANNIVERSARY at Duxton, and it’s available for both lunch and dinner for just the month of July!
Just like how most Chinese celebrate their birthdays by eating some noodles, I think (I never have before leh), Pince and Pints are following the tradition by offering these noodles on their 2nd anniversary!
This is basically just hong kong crispy egg noodles with lobster gravy and topped with a STEAMED WHOLE LOBSTER together with mushrooms, carrots and choy sum. Wow. I was amazed by the copious amounts of fresh lobster meat as well as the slight lobster sweetness within the broth. I preferred my noodles soggy though so I just left it to soak for a while before eating it.
Honestly, I felt that this was just a dish of good old egg noodles made more atas with lobsters. Not something that would blow you away, BUT it was a creative twist and the components were all done right!
Accompanying that lemak laksa gravy which has some serious lobster essence, this bowl was packed full of crustacean goodness including a half boston lobster, BABY CLAMS and the usual ingredients within the laksa. I still wish they had hums though, but nevermind, that generous amounts of clams made up for it.
This was seriously one premium bowl of laksa, and I would come back for this again, and again, and maybe again. So worth it. SUPER SHIOK.
I wish Pince and Pints do come up with such seasonal offerings more often, because.. THEY ARE DARN GOOD. Haha! I’d definitely return for more laksa goodness and for that TRUFFLE ROLL. Gosh.
