Pince and Pints
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!
