Chunky Lobsters – New Lobster Shack in Singapore!
The F&B scene in Singapore’s CBD has been gaining momentum. We chanced upon a cozy lobster shack, which opened in early April, that’s committed to serving affordable lobster rolls. As a self-proclaimed lobster lover, I was eager to have a bite of their lobster rolls.
Chunky Lobsters was started by Leonard and Chris, who are both in their 30’s. “We were inspired to sell lobster rolls by Luke’s Lobster, which serves quality and affordable lobster rolls in New York,” shared Leonard and Chris. Leonard, who is mainly in charge of marketing, is also in the insurance line. If you enjoy their lobster rolls, you’ll have Chris to thank. Prior to launching Chunky Lobsters, Chris, who is culinary trained, spent a ton of time developing the recipes. “Similar to Luke’s Lobster, we put about 90 grams of lobster flesh in each roll,” revealed Chris.
Their current menu is extremely lean — with only three types of lobster roll to pick from. We tried the Chunky’s Original ($16) and man, were we immediately sold. The key to a good lobster roll is, obviously, good lobster. “Singaporeans prefer the lobster meat to be firmer, so we use Canadian lobsters instead of Maine ones. The waters in Canada are much colder, which helps to retain the firmness and sweetness of the Canadian lobster meat. Flesh from Canadian lobsters are much bigger as well,” Chris explained. You can expect tender lobster chunks that deliver a satisfying sweetness, and a taste of the sea, The lobster chunks are coated in a homemade lemon butter sauce, mayonnaise, and their secret herbs and spices concoction. What hits you first is the sweetness of the lobsters, before the creamy and herbaceous flavours dominate. The fluffy bread roll is slathered with butter, and toasted to perfection. Each order also fetches you a side of wasabi-flavoured cassava chips.
The Chunky’s Cheezy ($16) will be a hit among cheese lovers. Look forward to a lobster roll with mozzarella, cheddar, parmesan sprinkles, and cheddar sauce. The amount of cheese was generous, no doubt, but it stole the show. I prefer the original roll to the cheesy version as I could enjoy the flavours of the lobster chunks. Patrons can top up for either set A (90cents for lemonade) or set B ($3.90 for lobster bisque and lemonade).
“We plan to introduce seasonal items into our menu in the near future, such as crabs and prawns, so do look out for that,” Chris shared. Well, you bet we will. Lobster rolls can be really pricey in Singapore, so we are really glad that we can now have a taste of delicious lobster rolls without burning a hole in our pockets!
