When it comes to seafood, the lobster is king. So imagine being able to pick from five different lobster dishes for your lunch or dinner - it's foodie heaven. Beaker and I were special guests at Harry's Restaurant to kick-off their Lobster August.
For the month of August, Harry's Restaurant is showcasing five slipper lobster dishes which you can get in their bar or restaurant. Slipper lobsters are a smaller type of lobster that has more intense lobster flavour. This the best time of the year to eat them. The dishes are priced between $15 to $30, which makes it an affordable luxe treat whether you're coming for a workday lunch of a special dinner.
Bar menu - char grilled slipper lobster with chilli and grilled lime, sweet potato chips and aioli ($19)
We tried canape versions of the five dishes. The char-grilled slipper lobster was tender and succulent. The grilled lime gave it a nice zesty freshness.
A new twist on the classic 'surf and turf', the lobster and pork belly is rich and hearty. The chunky lobster could hold its own against the meaty pork.
This was my favourite slipper lobster dish. It was rich and creamy and full of flavour. Perfect for a cold winter's night.
To round off our tastings, we had a range of sweet nibbles.
Verdict: we liked it a lot
Treat yourself with succulent seafood at Harry's Restaurant this month. With five slipper lobster dishes on offer and wallet-friendly prices, you're bound to find a dish you'll want to try!
