A tell tale sign that we have arrived at the lobster village at Sungai Rengit, the lobster sculpture-mascot!
From our search on johorkaki.blogspot.com, there are about 8 seafood restaurants that feature lobsters in their menu.
Overall, we felt quite satisfied with our first lobster meal at Pengarang, just that it was not quite enough to appease our appetite (and don't bother with crabs) :p.
So on Children's Day holiday, we decided to bring dear son to Desaru for a night's stay and there, the perfect excuse to go Pengarang for our lobsters again! Haha :p
上湯龙虾! Yes, one lobster for each of us! The lobster meat was very crunchy, sweet and succulent. The sauce was very rich, buttery, sweet with a hint of chinese herbs. Seriously heavenly!!!
So we asked for recommendation and the staff recommended us this Lobster cooked in Italian sauce 香草龙虾. And this dish totally blew our mind away, simply orgasmic! I mean we were already feeling quite full, you know diminishing marginal returns? This, still made us went gaga. All I could say was, it was so so so good. The sauce was simply to-die-for. Saltish, buttery, sticky with alluring aroma of mixed italian herbs and basil. The size of the lobsters were slightly smaller but it was just perfect to go with this sauce.
Gosh, should we return to Jade Garden for our next hunt, or try the other 6 restaurants. Can't decide!!!
