Much delayed blog post for this. I left it with the photos in the draft since 11 Feb. Every time when I have nothing to do, I tell myself that I needed to finish this. But look at the date now. So much for self-discipline. My last entry about London, I mentioned that the next time I’m around town, I will make a visit to Burger & Lobster.
And so I did!
Was thinking to order me a lobster, however upon seeing the price and calculating the cash on hand, I opted for something else. Full lobster shall be for another day. I have forgotten how pricey it is too. My server recommended me to have a starter in which of course I am up for it, they are fresh oysters after all.
I’ve got one each of the oysters that were recommended to me. Jersey oyster (small, left) and Poole oyster (big, right). The Jersey oyster has a much stronger flavour which is to my liking, whereas the Poole Oyster has a much lighter flavour. I’ve paired my oysters with some spicy mignonette sauce. With a squeeze of fresh lemon and the sauce, I was slightly in oyster heaven while I slurped them down.
As for the main course, I could not decide what to order while I am on my limited budget. Since I am in a place of burger and lobster, I got myself a burger with lobster in it too!
The Beast Burger with an extra order of fries on the side. It is an 8oz beef patty topped with grilled lobster meat, brie, truffle and tarragon mayo, fennel and Chinese cabbage. I love the serving portion of it. For the price I am paying, the portion of lobster meat and burger patty were not disappointing. I enjoyed every bite of it.
Who else eats their fries first before digging into the main dish?
In total, I’ve spent GBP 36 (including tax). You could find many branches of Burger & Lobster around London.
I would love to dine in Burger & Lobster again when I do have more cash with me and maybe other companions to have a sharing platter.
Till then, stay sane!
