Did you have a good weekend? I sure did and I hope you guys did too! =)
So, as you all may or may not know...Red Lobster! A popular seafood restaurant from the USA has finally come to Malaysia! The first branch opened at the Intermark in September 2014.
I, for one am neither here nor there on seafood because I like crabs, prawns, scallops and obviously lobster but I can't stand raw salmon, oysters and fish cheeks. So...definitely a good thing that Red Lobster is famous for lobster rite! =P
Why the sudden visit to the seafood restaurant? Le bro decided to treat us out of the blue so who are we decline and by we, I mean the fam. Thanks bro for lunch!
It was pretty empty when we got there but it was lunch time and I would really go for lobster for dinner so acceptable I guess. It's a pretty big restaurant with ample sitting for big parties and they even have a small room for more private occasions. I'm not going to list out the food we ordered first like usual because there's just too many.
Let's do it by course shall we! First are the drinks! (Note: I won't comment on the drinks and food that I did not taste)
Watermelon Juice (RM11.90)
I ordered a watermelon juice which was pretty good. It had pulp, was good consistency and it wasn't too sweet!
Mojito Mocktail (RM16.50)
Caffe Latte (RM8.90)
Berry Mango (RM19.90)
Bahama Mama (RM19.90)
Other drinks included le dad's mojito mocktail, le second bro's caffe latte, le mum's berry mango and le third bro's bahama mama which I did not get to try.
On to the starters! If you order from their set lunch, it comes with a soup of your choice and brownies and ice cream for dessert!
Before the meal, you get a basket of Cheddar Bay Biscuits. Kinda like the bread with vinegar and olive oil you get at Italian restaurants. Weirdly enough, the biscuits were pretty good! Just remember to not eat too many of them since they're pretty filling and I'm sure you'd rather be hungry when the lobster arrives!
Lobster Bisque - cup (RM13.90)
The soups come in two sizes, a bowl of lobster bisque is RM23.50.
Le boyfriend and I shared a lobster bisque which was AWESOME! It was creamy and full of the taste of the sea! Definitely a good starter to a seafood meal! Absolutely love it!
Fried Mozzarella Cheese (RM26.90)
We also ordered a plate of mozzarella cheese sticks which were ok considering they were fried blocks of cheese. The sauce didn't really compliment them though.
Onion Rings (RM17.50)
Other than that, onion rings! The onion rings was pretty good as they were fresh and crispy.
Clam Chowder - cup (RM12.90)
Now...finally we come to the main course! Are you ready for wipe your drool off your laptop? =P
Grilled Lobster, Shrimp & Scallops (RM116.50)
I ordered the Grilled Lobster, Shrimp & Scallops with pilaf rice. OMG guys! the prawns and the lobster were delicious and grilled to perfection! It tasted even better with the accompanied butter sauce! Sadly though, in contrary to the perfection of the grilled prawns and lobster, the pilaf rice and the scallops were disappointing. Even with the level of disappointment, I would still order this again. That's how good the prawns and lobster were!
Fish & Chips - Set A (RM39.90)
Le boyfriend on the other hand ordered the fish and chips which were kind of plain...let's just say that we've had better.
The rest of the fam ordered as followed.
Bar Harbour Lobster Bake (RM128)
Lobster & Steak Burger - Set B (RM89.90)
Bar Harbour Salad (RM31.50)
Seabass & Lobster - Set B (RM89.90)
For dessert! We just stuck to the set meal brownies and ice cream as we were pretty full by the end of the meal. The brownies came hot which is good but they were kind of normal. Still a good choice for dessert if you're a chocolate lover!
My verdict? A great place for a seafood meal! Albeit a tad bit expensive but do expect it to be as it is an overseas brand and they sell seafood for peat's sake! Good, fresh seafood is expensive when eaten in the city. I would definitely come back for more. Be sure to book a table just in case of a full house!
