Weekly grub: 5 things to eat and drink this week including mentaiko lobster rolls


As we head into the last stretch of November, work, Black Friday shopping, Thanksgiving and the FIFA World Cup has consumed our lives entirely. Take a break and respite in some holiday treats, from cruffins, to tipples and lobster rolls. Here’s where to get your breakfast, lunch and dinner fix this week!

Christmas exclusive treats at Luke’s Lobster are putting a beloved Japanese twist on our favourite lobster rolls. Roe shines in the new umami mentaiko lobster Roll ($34.50++) made with lobster claw and knuckle meat swathed in mentaiko mayo, and finished with seaweed flakes and chilli powder. Why stop at just one when you can get a festive trio (S$49.20++)?
