Grilled Maine lobster | The Black Swan
Instead of a rich and creamy Lobster Thermidor that can run heavy with a Mornay sauce, The Black Swan’s new head chef Alysia Chan has created a lighter version of the dish featuring fresh, thick lobster flesh cooked with a piquant tomato-based romesco sauce. The dish, which is part of the chophouse’s refreshed menu, comes with comforting black barley cooked in fish stock, corn risotto, and served with burnt scallion.

Lobster & Eggs Benedict | Adrift by David Myers
Tired of the usual Eggs Benedict that’s typically served with ham or bacon? Indulge in this New England Lobster & Eggs Benedict with potato hash and lime that elevates the brunch classic with the addition of a chunky deshelled lobster claw. We love the lightly crisped potato hash that adds texture to the smooth dish. Opt for the beverage package (S$70++) to pair the delectable dish with free-flow champagne and selected cocktails and house pours.

Stewed noodles with lobster | Min Jiang
Another Asian take on the beloved crustacean is this eye-popping creation from Chinese restaurant Min Jiang. Local lobster is cut in half and quickly fried in oil, before adding stir-fried ginger and spring onions, a superior broth made with fried shallots, chicken broth, oyster sauce and dark sauce, and a dash of salt, sugar and potato starch. The lobster is presented on a bed of firm but springy egg noodles.

Truffle lobster mac & cheese | OverEasy
