Move over Burger & Lobster…

April 16, 2016

Sweet and juicy lobster, botanical cocktails and minimalist scandinavian design… Move over Burger & Lobster, I’ve found a new lobster joint in town worthy of writing home about!

Move over Burger & Lobster...After romping around the Columbian Road Flower Markets (see all the flower power action here), we wandered through the hip and happening streets of Hackney up to the Lobster Bar.

Whilst the lobster is the star of the show, the cocktail menu if also worth drooling over. Cocktails LondonIt’s got a very sea-shanty theme with cocktails such as  Under the Sea (pisco, lemon juice, cointreau with a red wine reduction), Sea Juleps (Pisco, cinzano, lime juice, thyme, sugar) and Crazy Water (Pisco, dry sherry, lime, narjoram Syrup, ancho reyes). I settled on a botanical gin sour that was as pretty as it was tasty!

We started with some delicious oysters with chilli and cucumber vinaigrette – such a delicious combination that I’m definitely going to try to re-create at home!

Although I was tempted by the lobster for lunch, I saw someone get the lobster benedict and I got major food envy!

Lobster Eggs Benedict

I’m not usually a fan of eggs benedict but this was really something else.

Creamy benedict sauce, deliciously sweet lobster, perfectly oozy eggs and some crunchy sourdough. A shell of a good combination!

Mr TUQ couldn’t go past the half grilled lobster with delicious salty chips.

And I couldn’t go past stealing a few of them… hot chips are my nemesis!

For good measure I also got my tongue into a few of the claws to suck out every single piece of meat possible. I’m usually more of a crab person but these British lobsters have left me hanging for more!

We devoured all our food and thought it rude not try a few more cocktails off the menu too. Lobster Bar

Feeling a little light headed and very fully, we wandered back home through the cool streets of Shoreditch.

I had a clawfully good afternoon sipping on cocktails and eating succulent lobster and give it 5/5 claws! If you’re in London then do yourself a favour a book yourself a table at Lobster Bar here!
