For any­one hop­ing to run a sin­glepro­tein-cen­tric restau­rant, they bet­ter make sure their pro­duce is top notch.

Us­ing sus­tain­ably sourced, wild caught At­lantic Coast lob­sters, Pince & Pints have not only rus­tled up clas­sics such as grilled or steamed lob­ster (from $58) and a favourite of ours, the clas­sic lob­ster roll (from $58), they have mined lo­cal food her­itage in serv­ing up var­ied lob­sters. The chilli lob­ster ($58) and black pep­per lob­ster ($58), for in­stance, riff on the chilli crab and black pep­per crab favourites we’re used to, while their ten­der and moist Can­tonese-steamed lob­ster ($58), is rem­i­nis­cent of gin­ger and spring onion-styled dishes served in Chi­nese restau­rants.

Con­stant in­no­va­tion is their key to stay­ing fresh. Apart from jazz­ing up main­stays such the clas­sic lob­ster roll with vari­a­tions such as truf­fle lob­ster roll ($68) and wasabi lob­ster roll ($58), they cre­ated the Nonya chilli lob­ster roll ($58) when they opened their new out­let at Ka­tong last year. The rich Nonya cul­ture and her­itage vibes of the Ka­tong dis­trict pro­vided just the in­spi­ra­tion they were look­ing for. Stay tuned for what they’d come up with next!
