My first taste of Luke’s Lobster was three years ago, in Japan. My sister had stumbled upon a post on Instagram and decided that would be our snack when we went to Tokyo. We let Google Map guide us through the streets of Harajuku and after a 15-minute walk, joined the snaking queue. No regrets. Obviously, we went back for another taste during our subsequent trips.
So when I heard Luke’s Lobster would be arriving on Singapore’s shores, I was ecstatic, but wondered how it would match up against the Japanese version, which left me impressed each time I went.
FYI, Luke’s Lobster originated from the US, not Japan. They’re best known for their lobster rolls, but also serve up prawn and crab rolls, and soups.
In Singapore, they will be adding grilled cheese sandwiches to the menu soon.
The space would sit 23 people under normal circumstances, but in the new normal, due to social distancing, it fits 17 people. Counter seats facing the kitchen where food is prepared are not available at the moment due to safe-distancing measures.
Here’s my review.
