We Bet You Haven't Heard of Lobster Aligue Fried Rice Before
The lobster rolls are the bomb, too
G/F The Fort Strip, 26th Street corner 7th Avenue, Bonifacio Global City

(SPOT.PH) It’s no surprise how The Fort Strip remains one of the Metro's favorite spots for food-tripping. There always seems to be something new. If you’re in for some delicious and unique seafood dishes sans the mess and the bibs, for example, head over to Lobster Station, a recent addition to Manila’s fast-food scene.

Lobster Station’s stall only has four tables, but the casual joint’s menu is mouthwatering. Their main offerings are: Shrimp (P290), Crab (P390), and Lobster (P590) rolls, which are served with homemade potato chips and coleslaw. Fresh and light with generous portions of seafood enveloped in a soft and buttery bun, its thick sauce is made up of Japanese mayonnaise and their secret lemon butter sauce—sweet, tangy, subtle, and just delightful.
“Our crabs and lobsters are imported from abroad and we make sure we only get the best because it really affects the taste—especially because we’re dealing with seafood here; the fresher, the better,” says co-owner Ryan Gozon.
Grilled Tuna Panini
While these rolls definitely take the limelight, you should also try their grilled sandwiches and other dishes. The Grilled Tuna Panini (P190) is perfect when you want a light dish (or snack, depending on your appetite). This combo with melted cheddar and mozzarella cheese has been an instant favorite, and rightfully so, for all its savory flavors.
You can pair it with a rich, creamy bowl of Clam Chowder (P150) that you can always eat on-the-go along with your sandwich when things get too hectic. There’s also the golden-brown fried Calamari (P290) that’s best paired with freshly squeezed Lemon Juice (P75) or a cold beer (yes, they have drinks, too!). Their Truffle Fries (P190) are also a must-try.
Lobster Fried Rice
The Lobster Fried Rice (P150), steaming hot rice mixed with pure, decadent lobster fat, is something you could enjoy every day of the week (if you dare). Also try the Crabmeat Omelette (P190), which is absolutely indulgent because of the rich ingredients.
Lobster has always been considered a treat you can only indulge in when you feel like splurging. It's about time someone came along with the promise of satisfying those crustacean cravings—without the hefty price tag.
