After some delays, Burger & Lobster will finally open at JEWEL Changi Airport on the 23rd of May (Thurs).
The eatery is located at Canopy Park, JEWEL’s topmost floor, where diners will be treated to spectacular views of the Shiseido Forest Valley, and the majestic 40metre high HSBC Rain Vortex, set to be the world’s tallest indoor waterfall.
The brand of Burger & Lobsters, a UK chain, has been “wild and live” since 2011, beginning with 4 schoolmates on a rooftop in London.
Their bright idea was to put up a restaurant where they only serve one or two main ingredients, but executed perfectly. So, in a small Irish pub in Mayfair the first Burger & Lobster was born.
The chain has grown from Mayfair to many more outlets internationally, making its mark in Stockholm, Dubai, London, Manchester, Kuwait, Jeddah, Genting Highlands, New York, Bangkok, and finally Singapore.
True to its founders’ original idea to limit the menu to a few items, there are only 3 main items available: Burgers, Lobsters, and Lobster Rolls.
On a first look, the menu is rather lean and there aren’t that many surprises. However, the good news is prices seem to be more affordable than Bangkok’s.
For example, a Lobster Roll in Bangkok is priced at 1500 Baht (SGD64.80), while the Original Roll is priced at $40 here. Surprised?! For those who are curious, the Original Lobster Roll is priced at 138/153 Malaysian Ringgit in Genting Highlands.
I am not complaining.
To complement these menu items, Burger & Lobster offers some sides and beverages to complete the dining experience.
Let’s start with the burgers. They offer 3 kinds, 2 on brioche buns with sesame seeds, the other using pumpkin brioche.
The “The Mayfair” which is the “Original Burger” ($25) comes with patty made from 100% grilled Nebraskan beef, lettuce, tomato, house made pickles, B&L’s secret burger sauce, fries and salad.
Next up is the Spicy Burger ($25) which is the Original Burger with spicy mayo and fire sauce for that extra fiery kick.
Finally, they have “The Impossible” ($20), with patty which is made of minced soya and beetroot flavoured, served with sweet potato chips.
But we know people come to B&L mainly for the lobsters, not so for the burgers (especially since there is Shake Shack downstairs).
As for the lobsters, you can choose from the Original ($40), or the JEWEL Exclusive of Sambal Glazed Lobster ($65).
Both the Original and Sambal Glazed use a 1.5-pound lobster (average weight, as it may vary) from Canada (Nova Scotia).
You can choose between grilled or steamed for the Original, while the Sambal is a whole steamed lobster glazed with the spicy sauce.
All lobster rolls come in a toasted brioche bun. The Original Roll ($40) is lobster with Japanese mayo & lemon served with fries and salad.
I thought it may be wasted opportunity since there is already a Singapore Chilli Lobster Roll in London, yet not sold at Singapore’s outlet.
There are also starters of Grilled King Prawns ($12 for 2 pieces, $18 for 4 pieces) and Artichoke Alle Giudia ($9 for 1 piece, $15 for 2 pieces). Sides are priced from $8 to $10 which includes Slaw, House Salad, French Fries, Truffle Chips, Sweet Potato Fries and Sautéed Mushrooms.
