In celebration of the long Easter weekend, Burger & Lobster Raffles Hotel has an exclusive Easter brunch menu from 2nd April till 4th April, 11am – 3pm. I went with my family to find out if the new menu is worth the egg-citement.
Space and Ambience
Burger & Lobster Raffles Hotel’s interior is decorated with red leather seating and glowing fluorescent lights, providing diners with the feel of visiting an Irish pub at home.
There’s also an outdoor seating option with a fully decked bar as its main feature.
Food – Easter Brunch Menu
The Easter Brunch menu consists of new starters, mains, sides, desserts and even a special Easter Brunch Beverage list.
I decided to try one of their Easter special mains: B&L Benedict.
The B&L Benedict ($26++) consists of a pair of sous vide poached eggs served on toasted English muffins topped with lobster meat, applewood smoked bacon and avocado. The dish is finished with a lobster bisque mayonnaise and lobster bisque hollandaise sauce.
The B&L Benedict served a substantial amount of lobster meat on each muffin. The toasted muffin is crisp and chewy. The lobster’s sweetness complements the bacon’s smokiness, making for a perfect umami feeling in your mouth. However, if you’re not an avid avocado, its creaminess can make the dish overwhelming.
We also ordered several dishes from Burger & Lobster’s regular menu.
The Lobster Nuggets ($18) are lobster claws fried in a spicy batter that’s served alongside lemon mayo. For $18, I would’ve wished the portion would be more. The batter is light, but you won’t taste much of the heat from it. The lobster claw is meaty and sweet, and the lemon mayo makes for a refreshing dip.
Original Lobster Roll ($28, $34 with fries and salad)
For $28, you get your money’s worth with the sheer amount of lobster tightly stuffed inside the toasted brioche roll.
The salad and fries have nothing much to shout about, except the decent amount of parmesan cheese topped on the salad. I would recommend just ordering the lobster roll on its own and opting for other starters.
The B&L Pineapple Ice Tea ($9) is one of the best sellers. It’s made of black tea, pineapple, lemon and Gula Melaka. The drink is thirst-quenching, albeit sour. However, it’s an excellent option to enjoy your meal on a refreshing note.
Overall, I think the B&L Benedict from Easter Brunch Menu is worth trying with its decent portion size and sweet lobster meat.
I would give Burger & Lobster Raffles Hotel the following rating:
Space & Ambience: 4 /5
Service: 4 /5
If you want to eggs-plore the Easter Brunch Menu, you can do so till 4th April, 11am – 3pm.
