A Three Pound Lobster from Morton's

Three Pound Lobster

Actually, I've never been a big lobster fan. To me, they just seemed like overgrown shrimp, with coarse meat that was not really worth the money. But I've always been kinda fascinated by that giant sedated lobster that Morton's rolls out on those wooden carts. And given that our meal was covered as part of a gift tonight, I opted for a S$150 (US$120) three pound lobster just to satiate my curiosity.

Yes, it turned out fine. The meat was sweet and tender, and I liked the savory juices that I could suck out of those giant claws. But has my opinion about lobster changed as a result? Not really - I'd still rather spend my money on something else. One really shouldn't complain when being treated to a nice meal at Morton's though.

I'd like to know what kinds of people hand out gifts like 3 pound lobsters. Can you introduce us? I recently got to eat lobster and mantis prawn side by side. The mantis prawn won by a landslide.
