Pince & Pints Restaurant and Bar @ Bangsar - Lobster Galore

Pince & Pints, a famous brand from Singapore offering classic and contemporary lobster dishes, reminiscent of New England’s cuisine has come to KL. Opening their first branch in Bangsar KL, I had the opportunity to try out their lobsters the other day, and it was good! Check out what we had that evening below.

Pince & Pints Restaurant and Bar, the quintessential destination for affordable lobster feasting, opened its first outlet in Kuala Lumpur. Specializing in lobster-only comfort food, this first-of-its-kind concept will further enhance the city’s dining offerings much to the delight of savvy consumers and tourists. Hailing from Singapore and situated in Duxton Hill, the city’s hippest dining enclave, Pince & Pints has experienced great success since it first opened the doors of its flagship restaurant in 2014.

Arriving at the restaurant late in the evening, the crowd was already there, all ready to indulge in some fresh lobsters. Glancing through their menu, Pince & Pints literally had only five dishes, awesome lobster dishes. Featuring just five must-try dishes on the menu, reflecting the restaurant’s unpretentious approach to lobster epicureanism, each item is priced at RM158.00 ++.

Lobster Noodles - RM158++

Exclusive to the Kuala Lumpur outlet will be “Lobster Noodles”, homemade egg noodles topped with large chunks of fresh lobster stirfried with scallions and ginger in a lightly seasoned sauce. The lobsters are wild caught, air-flown, skillfully handled, and stored in state-of-the-art deep sea tanks where even the lobsters may be tricked into thinking that they might be back in the waters of Boston, Maine or Canada, where they are imported from. 

Handled with care at the Pince & Pints KL warehouse, the lobsters are also readily available to supply to other leading restaurants, hotels and F&B outlets throughout the country.

Chili Lobster - RM158++

Introducing the sensational Chili Lobster with Mantou, which has been a hit with locals and tourists alike, I'm more than delighted to dig in. With slighty more tart and sweeter than the chili sauce used for crabs, roma tomatoes, ginger, lemon grass, garlic, and egg are added to the chili sauce (a special house blend). The sauce delivers its singular, delicious punch with mantou (fried buns) – providing as the perfect pillows to soak up the mouth-watering gravy.

Next we actually got to try out these delectable live whole lobsters. There is a choice between getting the steamed version and the grilled version. Choose from either a grilled or steamed version, these are the best ways to fully appreciate and experience the natural sweetness and freshness of lobsters. 

The grilled version comes with mesclun salad tossed in sour cherry and balsamic vinaigrette, herbed butter and straight cut fries with skin. And for the steamed version, the live lobster is steamed in salted water and olive oil (a classic New England technique) to enhance the natural taste of the sea; the perfect option for those wanting to ‘eat clean’.

Next, we were served with the superstar on the menu: The Lobster Roll. A signature at Pince & Pints Restaurant and Bar: steamed, then marinated with mayonnaise and salt. The iconic “top split” homemade bun is generously spread with butter before pan-frying, which makes the roll light and crispy with an aromatic richness.

Stuffed with hearty chunks of the natural sweetness of the meat (using a whole lobster and the claw) and coated with chopped chives, the dish is then served with a side of straight cut fries with skin and salad with the restaurant’s own house dressing of sour cherry balasmic vinaigrette.

Cocktails take on a different approach at Pince & Pints where the cocktail menu is curated according to accent flavours – sweet, sour, bitter or dry. Whether looking for the perfect cocktail to start your meal or a dessert-like concoction to relish after satisfying your lobster cravings, cocktails will further excite and tantalize the tastebuds and dining experience. 

Using only fine quality spirits and homemade syrups, the original cocktails to try include Highway Run Into the Midnight Sun (Gin, Vodka, Fresh Lim, Cilantro, Sugar), Dante’s Dream (Cucumber Gin, St. Germain, Fresh Lime & Mint, Cucumber Syrup) and Lychee Martini No 32 (Rum, Alsatian Gewurztraminer, Lychee Purée & Liquer, Sugar) amongst others. 

Do drop by Pince & Pints Restaurant and Bar @ Bangsar the next time you are in the vicinity and am in the mood for good lobsters.

Why you no Belanja me!! Somehow, crab meat is nicer to me than Lobster but there's more meat per lobster than a crab. Ah.. the choices we have in eating shell fishes.
