Blue Lagoon Lobster Set Course
Nelson: The best Lobster deal at Blue Lagoon is ordering the set course at lunch time ($88). Yes, it's luxurious ordering large lobster (3lb+) at lunch, but it was Mother's Day so why not?
The lobster is served in three different ways. The meaty lobster tail is served with efu noodles and vegetables. I love eating the noodles in this dish as they are very flavourful. The big meaty pieces of lobster are delicious too obviously.
|Here is a vegetable dish with bono flakes on top. It lends a smokey flavour to the vegetables which I like.|
|Here is the battered deep fried lobster, my favourite style. It's mostly legs, and the end of the tail, but you can eat the batter and it is delicious. I almost feel like they should cook the whole lobster in this style. Which they probably could.|
|Chicken, which is not part of the set meal.|
|Fried dough and lobster claw and knuckle. This is basically boiled in the congee so I find it flavourless. This is my least favourite way to cook lobster and I feel like it's almost a waste to cook like so.|
I guess most of the flavour went into the congee. I"m not even a big fan of congee so I didn't enjoy it more than any other flavoured congee.
A pretty good deal for such a large lobster. I guess it's more expensive to cook it in multiple different ways, but I would almost prefer all of it to be deep fried in the Hong Kong style.
