Dubbed as one of the best lobster places in Singapore, Pince & Pints which is well-known for its trendy lobster dishes will be opening their third outlet at Katong (across from Katong i12) on 16th October 2017. This was my first time at Pince & Pints and I can already foresee myself returning a few more times with my loved ones. Food definitely exceeded my expectations – the Atlantic air-flown wild-caught lobsters were really fresh and sweet, and the lobster dishes were all well-executed.
The laid-back and cosy environment of the new outlet also makes the whole dining experience a memorable one. Personally, I feel that it’s the perfect place for a first date as well as a family gathering. So, mark your calendar because the lobster feast is going to start next week! I can’t wait!
Other than their signature lobster dishes, I was pleasantly surprised by their Mac & Cheese which made my heart fluttered. The in-house drinks were also very impressive! Overall, my tummy was more than satisfied. Can’t wait for my next visit!
Who Moved My Chendol // $20
The chendol flavour was really strong and aromatic. Definitely a drink I need on a hot weather. Gives you immediate sugar rush (don’t worry, not too sweet)! Life-saver indeed!
Mixed Platter // $32
This platter is really very value-for-money, especially if you are eating with a large group of people. It consists of Crispy Fried Fish Skin (so damn addictive), Fried Calamari (well-battered), Garlic Butter Mussels (flavourful and sweet), generous servings of Straight-cut Fries, Chargrilled Bread and Tartar Sauce. What I liked about the fried food is that they are also not too oily. Highly recommended to get this platter!
Live Oysters // $30
The oysters here are fresh, huge and succulent. Slurping good!
Lobster Mac & Cheese // $29
Not kidding but this was one of the best Mac & Cheese I’ve tasted in Singapore so far! The cheese flavour was strong but not too overpowering (and just looking at how gooey the cheese is) Pasta was well-cooked, not too soft or too tough. Overall, the dish was very well-executed! So well-executed that even though I’m not a huge fan of cheese, I finished it all!
The Truffle Roll // $68
OMG! The truffle smell was so alluring that my mouth was literally salivating when the server put it on my table. Truffle caviar definitely went well with the lobster meat as well as the roll. Drizzle some butter sauce onto the roll for maximum pleasure! I was legit awed by this dish! A must-try!
Live Whole Lobster // $58
How can anyone not like this? I mean the lobsters are fresh, well-grilled and has a nice sweet finish. It was really easy to get the meat out of the shell (that means the lobsters are super fresh). Fries were well-seasoned as well.
Chilli Lobster // $58
The sauce was flavourful, and it was more sweet than spicy to me. If you can’t take spicy, this dish will appeal to you but I would have very much preferred it to be a little spicier and less watery. Other than that, the lobsters were no doubt delectable. Mantou was crispy too.
