American-based Luke’s Lobster specialises in, what else, lobster rolls. The lobster roll chain, which started eleven years ago by founder Luke Holden, has 26 outlets in America, and a further 10 in Japan. Their first Singaporean outlet is set to open on Sept 23 – with, coincidentally, 23 seats.
Done in collaboration between the brand and Caerus Holdings – headed by CEO Vijay Pillai, previous trendsetting ventures include Lady M’s signature mille crepes – lobster rolls might be brought into the spotlight once again, after their last big splash in the local foodie scene thanks to Burger & Lobster’s opening in Jewel Changi Airport last year.
After all, Singapore has quite the stable of restaurants offering up homely takes on exquisite oceanic dishes: think all manner of rib-sticking chowders, bisques and gumbos that draw from the seafood capitals of the States, Louisiana, Boston and more. And since you won’t be able to make a trip down any time soon, these lobster rolls and other takes on classic American seafood are the closest you’re going to get for some time yet.
