My husband and I were looking somewhere quick to eat before my son's playgroup. I suddenly remembered this place so we hurriedly went in around 1:45pm. Luckily the lunch crowd was almost gone because we had a baby, it would've been quite annoying for other diners if it was packed (which I'm sure it is at normal the lunch hour).
We ordered the rich lobster bisque udon ($120) and the lobster cheong fun ($68). The udon came really quickly, the ladies were really considerate, giving us extra bowls and placing the hot soup away from my baby. At first glance, there was a substantial amount of lobster on top (awesome), with other garnishes (can't remember what else apart from corn) and a lobster oil (I think). The lobster bisque was thick and creamy, packed with flavour, we (including my son) enjoyed it immensely. I had a bit of the lobster, it was tender and not overcooked, which is easy to do especially when it's in a hot broth. Portion was good, my husband couldn't finish the noodles.
The cheong fun came much later. I was wondering what took so long, as I assumed it would just be pre-steamed cheong fun with a lobster sauce on it. It came with bits of lobster (not the big chunks like in the udon but it's only $68! what did you expect?) and shrimp/lobster roe. They even had roe on the table so you can help yourself to more. I like the generousity, even though I didn't add any.
I took a bite and I realised why it took so long. The cheong fun wasn't just steamed, they were lightly fried so they had a slight crispiness to it. Very enjoyable, I ate it all as my husband wasn't interested. If I were to be picky then I'd say it was a little bit oily and heavy together with the sauce, so it would be good to add something to cut through the richness.
At a time where dining out is crazy expensive, I think Lobster Bobo's food is worth its value. Service was good, even though there wasn't a service charge. I mean a $120 for a soup noodle lunch isn't cheap by any means but this is lobster! In Central! I would definitely come back again if I was feeling rich that day haha. I'm keen to try the rice in lobster broth next time.
