The new SkyAvenue mall in Genting is now home to the famed London-based Burger & Lobster (this outlet is the chain’s first in Southeast Asia). As you enter the place, you’ll see a number of aquariums housing the lobsters. The lighting may be a bit dim, but the atmosphere is lively. Inside, there’s a wall decorated with lobster traps that gives the place character.
Food-wise, the menu is pretty straightforward with three options each for burgers, lobsters and lobster rolls. For burgers, go for the ‘B&L Burger’ – lobster bits, Australian beef, onions, lettuce, tomato, cheese in a sesame charcoal brioche bun served with salad and fries on the side. If you want something a little lighter, try the ‘Seven Samurai’ lobster roll; it’s shredded steamed lobster doused in a special seven-spice sauce and served in between sliced brioche bun that has been toasted in butter.
If you’re here for the lobster though, you have the option of having them steamed or grilled, and they come with a side of salad, fries and lemon garlic butter sauce. One of the options for lobster is unique to this particular outlet – the ‘Chilli Lobster’. This dish, inspired by the Singaporean chilli crab, is lobster served in thick sweet-and-spicy chilli and tomato sauce accompanied by butter-toasted brioche buns to scoop up the sauce.
The drinks menu boasts a wide selection of beer, wine, cocktails, mocktails and more. One of their signatures is the ‘Time Keeper’ mocktail – it’s basically a fancier and pricier version of teh o’ ais limau. It even comes in a plastic ikat tepi, and is made with black tea, calamansi lime, kaffir lime and palm sugar. If you want something to share, get the ‘Genting Opulance’ cocktail – gin, Chambord raspberry liqueur, pineapple, basil, ginger and rum – which is served in a tower dispenser.
