The Orange Lobster 龍虾世家 @ Orchard Central

The Orange Lobster (龍虾世家) is a modern Chinese restaurant located in Orchard Central. Helmed by award-winning Chef Lau Siaw Dee, the restaurant believes in using the best ingredients to recreate otherwise simple, comfort food.

Their signature dishes include Lobster Porridge and also modern takes on traditional Chinese dishes such as the Sweet & Sour Kurobuta Pork and Salted Egg Crispy Lotus Root.

I tried both their lobster porridge and salted egg crispy lotus root during my visit – both are to-die-for delicious!

The concept of using expensive ingredient in simple, traditional Chinese dishes seems rather showy and one-dimensional at first, but once you sample the creations, you are likely to be impressed, just like I was.

From the ingredient used, dining at The Orange Lobster isn’t exactly cheap, but still good value for very good food.
