Get your lobster fix at Resorts World Genting


At Resorts World Genting we have numerous eateries to pick from but we have decided to fine tune the search to seafood and slightly finer to crustaceans with this must have lobster compilation when one is up here. In this regard there are an array of lobster dishes one can find, the likes of Burger and Lobster, Seasons, Ltitude Lounge, and FuHu amongst the many others.

Burger and Lobster

Burger and Lobster a prominent label from London is still the crowd favourite here in Resorts World Genting since its opening in 2016.  What makes Burger and Lobster outlet here special aside from it being the first branch in South East Asia, is their Chilli Lobster dish that was specially curated by Chef Oliver Lopez. Due to it being a hit here and a signature on the local menu, London’s Burger and Lobster had added this dish to their menu too.

Talk about starting something. The Chilli Lobster at Burger and Lobster as seen in the picture comes with brioche bread that is freshly baked by the in-house. The dish itself can be considered a portion for two and is really a treat for your tastebuds. Many are familiar with the Asian styled chilli crab which is a tomato based dish with a hint of spicy, sweet, and sour. Similar to that Chef Lopez had created this dish and it accurately ticks all the boxes. It wasn’t overpoweringly sweet with a good amount of chili to it as many places tend to make their chili dishes sweet and forget about the savoury notes. Preference certainly plays a role.

The lobsters served at Burger & Lobster are all air flown from Canada.  They are great not only as a Chili Lobster dish but equally delicious when grilled or steamed. 

For those wondering what drink to have while devouring the Chili Lobster, do try both the Time Keeper and Ginger Soda. The Time Keeper is an iced lemon tea drink similar to that served at the mamak stalls.  One would automatically fall in love with it and especially if you are a fan of something refreshing and zesty. The Time Keeper comprises of calamansi cordial and concentrate, black tea, palm sugar, and calamansi lime. Mixologist Pranill Sam of Highline Rooftop Market had come up with this concoction which is also featured on the menu in London. The drink is presented in a plastic with a straw inside like how you would be served a takeaway drink at a mamak stall.

The Ginger Soda on the other hand is not only refreshing but also stronger in terms of taste notes with its pure ginger blend that gives it that spicy and pungent taste to it. With additional ingredients that include lemon and lime juice, calamansi lime and sprite garnished with a lime leaf the Ginger Soda drink certainly leaves an impact on you.

With up to 20 years of cooking experience beneath him Chef Pio Junior De Souza takes his cooking very seriously and always pays attention to the guests that dine at Seasons. It could be the littlest thing such as how fast they eat the dish and if there is any leftovers or not. According to Chef Pio Junior De Souza the noodles that come with the braised lobster goes through three steps of cooking before being served. One of which is to ensure the noodles is softened before being fried and finally braised. 

What makes the braised live lobster noodles a must have is the way it is prepared to perfection and is topped off with some Shaoxing wine which would be the key ingredient in this dish that not only lends the dish an enticing aroma but also gives it that vinegary and caramelized taste to it. The dish is served with the lobster atop of the noodles along with the bok choy vegetables carefully arranged around the dish.

A must have lobster dish from the Ltitude’s Lounge menu is the curry lobster. The common misconception when the word curry is mentioned is it being a spicy dish filled with curry to the brim but that is not the case with this dish.

The curry lobster here is a dry yet creamy curried version and one which is mild tasting in terms of spiciness and cooked with various spices giving it that fusion twist. You can think of it as a buttermilk variation as well. Key ingredients in the lobster curry include evaporated milk, turmeric, curry leaves, cumin, and coriander to name a few.

When the dish is served, the first thing one would notice is how fragrant it is from the curry leaves atop the lobster to the evaporated milk and spices it's cooked in. Due to it being a dry curry, the gravy is little but Chef Teo advises that in order to have more gravy he would need to increase the amount of evaporated milk in it which will end up diluting the dish. Hence he sticks to a strict ratio.

Guests can opt to eat the lobster either with rice or on its own, the choice lies entirely up to them.

The lobsters used are American lobsters and usually weighs about 550grams to 650grams and is fresh out of Resorts World Genting’s in-house kitchen.
