Fishman Lobster Clubhouse Restaurant

We walked into the restaurant and this was the first thing we saw:

Tofu Mushroom Soup
Nice clear soup broth with king oyster mushrooms, choy, tofu and a seafood taste.

IMAG3520
Alaskan Snow crab legs
Sweet, succulent and delicious meat steamed with crumbly egg yolk, egg whites and green onion. I found the meat from the smaller crab legs was juicier and tastier than the larger crab legs.

 IMAG3522
Typhoon Shelter Crab
The lobster was seasoned perfectly - full of flavour and delicious. The meat was sweet and the sauce was savoury and salty with a hint of spiciness - a nice contrast.

IMAG3524
Lobster with garlic chips
Lobster prepared with flaky and crispy garlic chips, but I wasn't really a fan of this style of lobster - it was way too salty.

IMAG3518
Steamed fish with a glass of soy sauce
Typical steamed fish with soy sauce, but with an interesting take on the presentation of the dish.

IMAG3525
Choy with ham on top
Simple & classic choy with soy sauce and it made for a nice reprieve from all the heavier seafood dishes.

 IMAG3528
Romaine Lettuce with soy sauce
I didn't really understand the soy sauce in a wine glass as part of the presentation - if anything I didn't even bother having lettuce with soy sauce because I'd grab a bunch of leaves and forget to pour the sauce on top.

IMAG3527
Crab Fried Rice
This fried rice dish was so heavy, especially after eating all that seafood earlier. The rice was good and there were delicious chunks of crab meat - but it was just so much food.

IMAG3530
Black Sesame Soup
A little watery, but okay.

Overall: It's a pretty big restaurant with a lot of big tables (usually for parties of 5 people or more) and it makes sense with all the large portion set-dinners. Definitely a Chinese seafood lover's dream here - they give you a whole boxful of disposable gloves to eat with (I probably went through 5 pairs of gloves myself eating all the crab legs and lobster - I also realized how oily and greasy seafood can get through that experience). Food was good here, service was great...it's pricey for Alaskan Snow Crab legs, but they're really delicious.
