With the Malaysian GST implementation looming in, just a couple of days away, The Manhattan Fish Market invited us foodies and bloggers to check out their latest affordable Canadian lobster dishes as well as a short explanation on their upcoming prices. Before we get into the technicalities of the GST implementation, I have to shout out that at RM39.90, these has to be the cheapest lobsters in town!

The calm before the storm. Before we move into the dishes that we had that night, do check out below on some GST calculations implemented on the prices from The Manhattan Fish Market.
|Stay Cool, it's not as expensive, even after GST implementation|
If you are about to have around RM50 budget for any kind of dishes in The Manhattan Fish Market:.
1 Sharing platter cost about RM57.90 and the sub total is RM57.90. Add on with 10% service charge is about RM5.79 plus on with the 6% Goverment tax : RM3.47.
The total is RM67.16 after the Government Tax included - Rounding (+0.04) up you have to pay only RM67.20.
1 sharing platter with the same price RM57.90 the subtotal is same too RM57.90. The service charge is no longer available but replaced with their restaurant charge - which the total for the restaurant charge is 10% : RM5.79 from the 1 sharing platter price.
RM57.90+RM5.79 :RM63.69 ( Not included the GST 6% yet )
After subtotal the price of 1 sharing platter RM63.69 + 6% =RM67.51 Rounding up (-0.01) = RM67.50)
The difference after GST RM67.50 - RM before GST RM RM67.20 = RM0.30.
|Enough of prices, let's look at the crazy deals!|
Per my understanding, the market price for this Canadian Lobster is at RM59.90/each and The Manhattan Fish Market are selling to you at a lower than market price. How's that for a good deal? There are 4 types of flaming sauce to choose from: namely the Manhattan Flaming Sauce, Ebiko Flaming Sauce, Honey BBQ Flaming Sauce and Spicy Flaming Sauce.

|Manhattan Flaming Sauce, Ebiko Flaming Sauce, Honey BBQ Flaming Sauce and Spicy Flaming Sauce to choose from|
Interesting, yummylicious, and rather huge lobsters all set to flame up your senses. Personally out of the many flavours available, I like the one with the Spicy Flaming Sauce. Each bite into the lobster's flesh gives a tingling spicy sensation, tasting great with a hint of flamed smoked flavour. Good stuff here, at an unbeatable price of only RM39.90 each.

If you're dining with family and friends, then do feast on their Canadian Lobster platter instead. Served with one big Canadian Lobster, Fried Calamari, Fried Fish Fingers, Mussels, Fries, with broccoli and carrot on the side on top of herb rice, the platter feeds 3 to 4 pax. Not bad at all, where everyone in the family will be satisfied with the meal.
