9 Lobster Rolls In Singapore From $18 For The Ultimate Seafood Sandwich

29th September 2021

Best lobster rolls in Singapore

10 years ago, lobster rolls were never on most Singaporeans’ craving list. However, it has since become a mainstream menu item over the past decade. It isn’t just confined to upmarket restaurants with exorbitant prices either. A series of lobster roll specialists have entered the fray, offering the iconic New England sandwich at accessible prices.

Naturally, succulent and uber-fresh lobster flesh is the most important box to tick for a great lobster roll. However, a well-toasted, sinfully buttery brioche roll is vital too, as is a creamy yet light mayonnaise dressing. These eight lobster rolls fit those criteria. Regardless of price, you’ll find a lobster roll here befitting any occasion.

1. Burger & Lobster

Burger & Lobster is one of the most popular restaurants in London for a casual yet classy meal. While you’ll still have to head to the airport for a taste of their famed crustaceans, you can at least dispense with the plane ticket. That’s because this renowned British eatery was part of the spate of international restaurants that set foot in Singapore at Jewel Changi Airport. Now, it has an outlet in Raffles Hotel too.

You can’t go wrong with their Lobster Roll ($46++). Their toasty brioche buns exude butteriness and overflow with chilled lobster flesh before being topped with a sprinkle of scallions. Unsurprisingly for a restaurant with “lobster” in their name, their eponymous crustaceans are wonderfully plump, bursting with natural seafood sweetness. That sweetness takes centre stage, because each lobster piece is simply dressed with a light coat of Japanese mayonnaise.

2. Tipsy Flamingo

Actor Pierre Png’s foray into the F&B world has seen him open Tipsy Flamingo, a Wes Anderson-style bistro bar with lobster roll as a highlight. Named Tipsy’s Lobster & Crabmeat Roll ($29++), this chunky roll comes with mesclun salad and truffle fries on the side too. Whole lobster claws dress the roll, along with a dollop of caviar for some extra indulgence. Shredded crab meat tossed in a creamy dressing is also added to the roll, making it one to order for ardent seafood lovers.

4. Chunky Lobsters

Chunky Lobsters was the first joint in Singapore to make lobster rolls seriously affordable as a weekly meal, rather than a treat for special occasions. “Seafood made affordable” is their motto, and that has clearly resonated with the local market. 

The menu here comprises a variety of mains, sides, and seafood dishes, but you’re really here for their lobster rolls. There are a variety of different options, starting from the cheapest at $23++. For the price, you get their Surf & Turf Roll, where lobster meat is dressed with bolognese sauce, mayo, and a creamy tarragon dressing.
