In my younger days, lobsters were only served in special occasions. Even though they are much more affordable nowadays, I feel ordering lobsters are still very special. When I first found out Lobster bar serves ’Lobster Benedict’, we went crazy about it and it was so good that we have to revisit them again. Lobster Bar is hidden in the residential area at the edge of London Fields. If you are not familiar with the area, I can create an itinerary for you in order to make your visit of the area more worthwhile. The restaurant is only 4 minutes walk from London Fields station.
On a sunny afternoon, we sat on a table by the window to enjoy the sun while sipping Cava I’m champagne glasses. The decoration inside is very simple, yet very elegant with their marble dining tables.Even though it was our second time here, we ordered the Lobster Benedict and Lobster Roll again. Our friends ordered steak and the whole lobster. On top of that we ordered truffle fries, oysters and tender octopus legs to share.

The quality of food is unquestionable, but what surprised us the mostly was the lava cake. The thick, hot-fudge-like chocolate sauce bursted out as I digged my spoon into it. I strongly advise you to starve yourself overnight, so you can have all 3 courses here. Again if you on a budget, you can go on a Saturday for their weekend brunch deal, which is £15 with a main and a drink.
Follow this itinerary to make the most of your East London visit (hopefully the weather is nice too): London Fields station -> Lobster bar -> Broadway Market -> Hackney City Farm -> Columbia Road Flower Market (Sunday only) -> Old Spitalfield -> Brick Lane Market (Sunday only)
