Waterfront Seafood Haven : Hooks @ The Yarra
It was a beautiful breezy Sunday to laze around the city along the scenic Yarra River. Of course, cam-whoring was part of the ritual and I had to pose with my new Birkenstock which came in time for spring. Yay, happy feet! All I need to do now is to get my pedicure done :)
Ok Ok, nuff said about my feet ! Yikes. We bought a social voucher to Hooks @ The Yarra for a Lobster Thermidor lunch. Lobster is one of those seafood that is not on my daily menu so definitely looking forward to it. It was a truly perfect day to chill with beer and waterfront view.
The moment we have been waiting for (wait for it *drumroll*) …. to sink our teeths into the lobster! Each of us got half a lobster only :( But the the ultra juicy, buttery sauce was very well blended with hot mustard and the lobster meat, so much so it gave me a “ping” through my senses. Thoroughly enjoyable and delicious. And it goes really well with the risotto served by the side.
Lobster thermidor, chips, salad and sauce
Verdict : Seafood…*drool*. This lunch has given me a preview of seafood cooking in Hooks @ The Yarra and I can say that I will be returning for more of that well cooked range of seafood menu in this restaurant.
