Pince & Pints Review

Day 192 : Burger & Lobster vs Pince & Pints.

 20     0



OMG.

This. Is. So. Yums!!!

Went to Pince & Pints last night with @evepek @tippytapp @withlovetricia and all our partners.

I've tried Burger and Lobster in London, back when I was still with SQ and my experience there was great! The food wasn't too expensive - 20 pounds per dish which was around $40+ sgd for a whole lobster, with free flow fries & salad at the side. 



This was what I had at Burger and Lobster in London.



& here's me in the bib that the restaurant gave. And omg I look like that 2 years ago? Lol!!

I remembered the herb butter sauce at Burger & Lobster was really good & sinful. I mean, it's 1 saucer of BUTTER?! But I couldn't stop myself from dipping my fries & lobster into the sauce cause it just went so well with the food. Calories? WHAT? Nope, zero Fs given.

The only negative thing I have to say about Burger & Lobster is that the meat was kinda too chewy? My jaw became so tired mid-meal.



A wet tissue was given to every customer which I feel is a MUST? Cause many of the patrons there get down & dirty with their hands when they are eating the lobsters.

On the whole, I can see why everyone is mad about Burger & Lobster in London & the queue is crazy! People were on waiting list for like 2 hours+ and it is always full house no matter what day you visit.

So when I saw that Pince & Pints was opened, I knew I had to try it!! Because I've secretly been missing Burger & Lobster!

So I've heard that P&P doesn't take reservations & you'll just have to go down as early as you can, they open at 5pm to 11pm Mon-Sat. Lucky for us, John & Tricia both know @fweddyap& @belluspuera (the owners) personally & we managed to get a table. But we did have to queue la.

I'm sure the crowd will not be going down any time soon so if you really want to try it, best advice is to go before 5pm? Or be prepared to wait for a long time. It's quite worth the wait thou!



This was what I ordered yesterday - the Lobster Roll.

Oh before I forgot, everything dish there costs $48! Which is actually really affordable for what you are getting.

So going back to my lobster roll, because of my tired-jaw experience in London, I decided to go for the roll instead of a grilled lobster. & also I've read many people saying that the lobster roll is really good!

& OMG, it was the BOMB.

After taking our first mouths, @tippytapp @evepek & I were like 

Then

The bread was so good you can eat it on it's own. I swear that's what @evepek said. LOL. She was like "just give me the bun only also can". It is soft & fluffy on the inside but slightly toasted & crisps when you bite it. 

& I like how you really get an entire lobster in your bun. You can literally see all the huge chunks of lobster. & best of all, I'm not sure what it's marinated with but it is real tasty. I'm usually not a fan of carbs but I finished the entire bun can?!?

So so good!!



Just have to post this picture once more.

Look at that!!!!

Okay, since I got the Lobster Roll, I told SX to order the Grilled lobster instead. So we can have a taste of both!



You can actually choose to have it steamed or grilled.

I tried a few mouths of it and I must say the texture of the lobster is BETTER than what I had at Burger & Lobster!! It wasn't as chewy and I didn't feel like I was eating rubber at the end of the meal.

The lobster meat is real juicy & it still has that bouncy texture.

Only thing that I feel needs stepping up is the herb better sauce. It's a little too oily for my liking & isn't as fragrant as or salty? I don't know.

We also decided..



To order an extra portion of this!

Chili lobster that comes with 5 mini buns.

This is something new, if you compare it to B&L, but it's so hard to ignore this dish because as a Singaporean, chili crab is like something we will all enjoy?

The 5 mini man-tous were devoured within seconds because it went so well with the sauce!! Only thing was I wished it was slightly spicier. The sauce was leaning towards the sweet side and I think it would be perfect if it has a spicier kick to it.



On the whole, I would say that I'll definitely be visiting Pince & Pints again! Gimme the lobster roll any time  it is definitely a dish fit for king.

I think I would also like to try the steamed lobster the next time round to thoroughly enjoy the sweetness of the lobster meat.

Budget wise, it isn't the cheapest meal around but considering the quality of lobster you are getting, I would say it is definitely worth every dollar I've spent.
