Enjoy them with truffle fries, chowder and even ice cream

Once a tough find in Singapore, lobster rolls have quickly gained popularity over the years. Below, we list six places where you'll be able to grab some of the best New England-style sandwiches around, along with some locally-inspired options too.

Beast & Butterflies 

Boutique hotel M Social’s Beast & Butterflies restaurant serves up a mean Lobster Roll. Available for both lunch and dinner, expect to enjoy a satisfying sandwich packed with fresh Maine lobster with just a hint of tang thanks to the use of lemon juice and celery. Simple, but it works. 

Burger & Lobster


Having arrived on our shores in early 2019 at Jewel Changi Airport, London-hailing chain Burger & Lobster is no stranger to Singapore’s F&B scene. Feeding our obsession for decadent sandwiches is its Original Roll boasting generous lobster chunks tossed with creamy Japanese mayo, held up by a toasted, buttery brioche bun. Other unique renditions of the dish include the Surf & Turf, Seven Samurai Roll and California Lobster Roll; the latter two are unique, Raffles Arcade outlet exclusives perfect for the more adventurous eaters.

Chunky Lobsters


Doling out affordable lobster rolls in a myriad of flavours is Chunky Lobsters that helms both a takeaway (Bugis Junction) and cafe concept (Orchard Gateway) in town. Those who prefer their lobster rolls chilled can try the Original or Mentaiko, while others who like them warm and toasty can opt for the Cheezy, Chilli Crab or Salted Egg. There’s also the mouth-watering Connecticut that sees the lobster roll pan-fried in butter; all rolls come in sizes S, M and L. Pair these with starters like the Fried Squid Tentacles, Truffle Fries and Mussel Bowl for a complete meal.

Lobsters & Ice Cream


While its moniker may raise a few eyebrows, Lobsters & Ice Cream simply serves a variety of seafood rolls and ice cream flavours within its cosy cafe concept at Tanjong Pagar. That means you can dig into lobster, scallop, prawn and crab rolls, alongside luscious ice cream options like French Vanilla, Milo and Matcha. We recommend the Standard Lobster Roll, topped with the signature Maine-style dressing. 

Luke’s Lobster


Known for its sustainable seafood practices, Luke’s Lobster is that famous New York lobster roll chain that first opened at Shaw House in late 2020, following several delays. On its menu are signatures such as the lobster, crab and shrimp rolls; its latest outlet at Great World also offers local twists on the traditional lobster roll. Just tuck into those yummy buns alongside a hearty bowl of clam chowder or a refreshing pint from Little Creatures brewery.

The Market Grill & Wine 90


Known for its steak and seafood options, this spot is a no-brainer. So get excited for a Lobster Roll featuring an entire lobster (the word ‘whole’ is key here), tucked into a toasted brioche roll and topped with tobiko. Greens and fries are offered as sides.
