From 27 May to 19 June 2016, indulge in unlimited servings of lobster at PARKROYAL on Pickering's signature all-day dining restaurant, Lime on a daily basis! Following that, Lobsterfest will happen every Wednesday and Thursday evening as part of the regular feature at Lime until 01 December 2016.
Diners at Lime will be able to feast on a variety of Asian and Western flavours as Executive Chef Deepak whips up a medley of Maine lobster dishes. Highlights from Lime Lobsterfest includes the Maine lobster thermidor with persillade crust as well as the Maine lobster with truffled hollandaise and espelette. Your craving for unlimited servings of lobster does not (and should not) stop there - indulge in the poached lobster with Marie rose sauce, and lobster salad with exotic vegetables and wasabi aioli. Other notable lobster dishes include:
- Pass-around Lobster Mac and Cheese with Truffle Salsa
- Lobster Bisque-based Risotto with Mascarpone and Lobster Meat
- Singapore Laksa with Lobster
- Singapore Chilli Lobster
- Black Pepper Lobster
- Maine Lobster with Salted Eggs
While the lobsters do take center stage at Lime, spoil yourself further with six different types of international cheeses, fresh sushi and sashimi, rotisserie chicken and other Western dishes. For a sweet ending, wash down all that lobster-indulgence with shots of durian pengat, assorted Nonya kuehs, Belgian chocolate or discover your inner-child at the iconic chocolate fondue fountain.

Hopping on a taxi and using a ride-hailing app in Singapore is not difficult but I sometimes prefer a proper limousine arrangement (especially when traveling to and from the airport) since they are a lot more comfortable and predictable. My OCBC VOYAGE Card is great since it gives me up to two free rides each month by spending S$3,000 (one free ride) or S$6,000 (two free rides) per calendar month. While this is typically enough for me, I sometimes make two or three trips a month and therefore, I turn to the next best alternative (or so I thought), Wolero One.
