Burger and Lobster Genting Malaysia – MENU – What to order?

So, the famous UK chain Burger and Lobster is “open” in Malaysia (EDIT: at the point of writing I had thought it was open already. It is now officially “opening soon”) and when I found out a few days ago, I was astonished.

Curious, I went to Genting today and true enough, there were many billboards along the way with the teaser “Coming Soon”.

I had wondered too, like everyone else, if it is the same menu as the one in London and what are the prices like?

I mean, our economy isn’t at its finest and our currency isn’t even accepted at most overseas money chargers now.
So is everyone going to jump at the opportunity to eat RM100++ lobster rolls?

Well, judging from how Pince and Pints is faring in Bangsar (still surviving), I guess the rich is still rich.

Besides, Burger and Lobster opened in GENTING HIGHLANDS, not downtown PJ or KL.
Obviously the targeted clientele is of a different league.

What’s a few hundred RM for lobsters if you just had a windfall at the Roulette tables?
And the amount of China tourists in Genting, good lord. I can imagine half of them in Burger and Lobster.

*Prices are inclusive of GST.

I got some images from stalking their FB page since SkyAvenue was closed.
Burger and Lobster was closed too. **
What a disappointment!

** EDIT: This is true as of time of writing. Officially however, Burger and Lobster is “opening soon.”
I will edit this article with the opening date once the date is officially announced. 

We stopped our car and I went to the information counter to check before parking as the stupid navigation system in Genting is well, stupid.
Hoping to save ourselves the trouble should the outlet be closed (sending them a FB message didn’t help and the contact number on their page doesn’t work!), I went to ask a girl at the Information Counter if Burger and Lobster is open.
She assured me that it is, and hence I could just walk to Starbucks just across from her and go one floor up and I’ll be able to see the outlet.

So we went to get parking and hurried over to SkyAvenue.
After 30 minutes of driving about to secure a parking spot followed by another 3o minutes of walking around trying to locate the damn outlet, we went back to her and told her that SkyAvenue is closed and we can’t find the entrance to Burger and Lobster.

She argued and said it would be.
Then she looked at our faces and decided to call “someone ” to check. Turned out that is wasn’t open after all.
Needless to say, both of us were not in a good mood.

Anyways, our frustration aside, the menu that was circulating online gave me an idea of what to expect if I ever attempt another trip up Genting.

Firstly, I noticed that some of the items were actually “Malaysianised”.
Signature chilli sauce? Seven spices sauce?

Er, no thanks. I’ll go for the original! 🙂

Seeing the “localised” items on the menu also made me wonder just how much of the original ingredients and recipes are retained in this outlet (compared to the original in London).

Well, I haven’t been to the one in London so I’ll just have to enjoy it as it is.

Now friends, who has been to the one in London, go try and let me know? 🙂

    The one in London is fantastic! I loved it and I hope this new one in Malaysia will be as good too. The copycat Pince & Pints in Bangsar was total disappointment in my opinion.

      “The copycat Pince & Pints in Bangsar was total disappointment in my opinion” – oh my.. how so??? freshness? taste? service? portion?

      googled but couldnt find your blogpost on it

      Ah ok, found ur Insta “The epic fail of trying to copy Burger & Lobster London! Butter sauce is bland and the #lobster meat was rubbery… Extremely overpriced for RM158++!”

      LOL. wht the… !!!!

    Wow. Burger & Lobster newly opened in Genting? I’ve been twice to Burger & Lobster in London. Also, I’ve tasted Pince & Pint in Bangsar. I prefer the original taste in London though 🙂 The London lobster tasted so fresh

    1. Rebecca Saw

      Yup yup!
      But not opened yet tho! 😀
      And i can imagine how fresh the one in London is coz I could read the raving reviews online (and now frm u too!).
      So even Pints and Pince in Bangsar aint as good?
      P & P lobsters are farmed in Sabah, should be fresh but perhaps the taste is different because of different preparation/recipes?

    I planned to go to Burger & Lobster Genting for my first year wedding anniversary, i tried once in London and it cost me 20 pounds. I really enjoy the hollandaise sauce. hopefully genting will not be a disappointment and i better call in advance for reservation and see whether the resto is suitable for me to bring baby 🙂

      Hi Ari!
      Apologies for the late reply and TGIF!
      So how was it compared to London’s? I’ve not been to London before! 🙂

    Hi Rebecca,
    I plan to go this week. Still consider whether I should try it oit or not because it is extremely overprice. My friend from England told me that the price is much more expensive than in London.

      I wont say it’s extremely overpriced. You can check out the London menu here. https://www.burgerandlobster.com/en/menu
      To be honest, I find that the one is Malaysia is much more cheaper because the price is inclusive of GST and no 10% service charge and the drinks are not as expensive as those in London.

      1. Rebecca Saw

        Alright, I guess to some its overpriced cos to them the quality wasn’t great (that was what i was told when I asked for their opinions) but things may have changed since then! 😀
