Department of Caffeine (D.O.C.), one of our favourite cafes in Singapore, has recently introduced two lobster dishes that everyone must try. The Lobster BLT “Roll” is reasonably priced at S$18.50, while the more luxurious Lobster Club – the full works on a toasted brioche – is S$21.50 and only available during weekend brunch.
Technically speaking, Department of Caffeine’s rendition is more like a BLT sandwich rather than a lobster roll, but we’d like to think of it as the same thing, but with more bang for the buck.
At S$18.50, you get a Lobster BLT with butter poached Boston lobster tail, Louisiana hot sauce mayo, rocket, wasabi sprouts, fresh tomato, flying fish roe, streaky bacon sandwiched between toasted sesame bun. Seriously, we have no ideas how the folks at Department of Caffeine can price it so cheap, but no one is complaining. It just gives us more reason to pig out, that’s it. Same for you, right?
The Lobster Club (S$21.50) is the full works topped with butter poached Boston lobster tail, tangy mayo, streaky bacon, and sunny side up on a toasted brioche. We are salivating just at the thought of it.
Both options come with crinkle cut fries, and we strongly recommend you to “upsize” it with extra lobster (S$5). For the full lobster experience, you can also get a cup of homemade Lobster Bisque with creme fraiche and croutons at only S$4.
Now, pick up your phone and make your reservation pronto.
