Craving for lobster? Want to cook your own lobster? Don't know where to find one? ..(eh banyak lak soklan)....
Before I answer those questions for you, let me show my home cooked lobster first:

Wanna know where I got my lobster?…read on…
So last Sunday we went to Carboot-Shah-Alam-yang-langsung-dah-tak-macam-carboot-dah-tu. It used to be pure carboot in the 90s (I sound old)...
Anyway, while we were walking at the fish area, we passed Lubuk Lobster stall, with white background and a picture of a large orange lobster. Behind the stall, were 2 individuals clad in white t-shirt. The stall was very organised, with orange storage on one side and neatly decorated frame, t-shirts and caps on the other side. A very attractive stall. Attractive to the point that my husband and I stood slightly further from stall and we discussed how attractive it was....(boleh lak tengah-tengah jalan tu discuss pasal stall tu). I kept on telling my husband on how I love the branding of Lubuk Lobster while my husband kept on asking me whether I want to eat Lobster or not...hahhaha really funny..my kids, they layan je lah kitorang berdiskusi kat situ.
And so we approached the stall and I straight away complimented them. I mean why would you not...just look at their stall….very attractive combination of white and orange…..and because I love white too:

Luqman Lubuk Lobster and his team mate
The owner, Luqman Hakim said his business started out from his own cravings and interest in lobsters. Since then Lubuk Lobster was born and has been operating for more than 1 year now.
So basically Lubuk Lobster is selling two types of lobsters; the American Lobster (from North Atlantic Sea) and Canada Lobster. The difference is American lobster has claws (sepit) with decent flesh in it while the Canadian one doesn't have any flesh in its claws.

So, how do you clean a lobster? We had no idea. We Youtubed and so apparently you just need to brush the shell and wash under running water…fine. And then get this, there's one where the lobster is still breathing and the guy just cucuk bawah dia...I can't look at it....lepas dia cucuk, keluar apa ntah...macam air. Ok, so we didn't do that. We fried the lobster first and let it cool before we cut the middle and took out some black stuff (I guess itu dia punya kotoran-kotoran la kot....)
The flesh is like crab but more elastic. Crabs flesh are softer….but lobsters are ok, I would definitely buy again tapi takleh selalu la koyak poket kang….and my dad said there’s a type of lobster that eats human liver….I hope Luqman of Lubuk Lobster is aware of some lobsters that we cannot eat.
So, in conclusion, why must you go to a fancy restaurant or a hotel just to eat a lobster when you can cook it at home?...Just buy it from Lubuk Lobster and cook...your style...I guarantee that you will not be disappointed.
Tips: Cook immediately unless you have a deep freezer and don’t ever microwave the lobster coz the flesh would melt if you microwave it.
