Thanks to the wonderful invitation, I recently get to sample some nice modern Thai cuisine at the newly opened Lobbee Thai Connection. Located at the lower ground floor in Empire Damansara, you may have some difficulty to look for Lobbee if you are not familiar with the place. Generally, it is same level with the car park, and exactly one floor down below the main entrance.
Lobbee, a name derived from their specialty lobster and the head chef’s name Bee, has a rather simple, clean and modern dining setting with comfortable environment and serves reasonably priced good food.
Red Lemon Soda (RM8)
Another interesting Lobbee’s sweet sourish creation, Thai red syrup mixed with refreshing soda, lemon juice and malt drink.
Lobbee Iced Tea (RM9)
Looks simple but definitely not your ordinary iced tea! This is fragrant rose tea with blended lychee at the bottom for the natural sweetness.
Iced Butterfly Pea Lime Juice (RM9)
Such a fun and interesting drink! The natural coloring was from Butterfly Pea leaves, the same material used for nasi kerabu. Pour in the lime juice and stir thoroughly before drink it to obtain a nice shade of purple color.
Fried Potato Salad (RM11)
Chef fried these potato strips till nicely golden brown, and served together with their special Thai salad dressing, which made from peanuts, long beans, fish sauce and palm sugar. Similar to som tam sauce with spicy sourish taste, diners can choose to mix it together with the fried potatoes or have it as dipping sauce.
Fried Prawns with Sesame (RM8)
Coated with sesame for the extra fragrant, these deep fried till super crunchy small prawns make the perfect companion with a glass of chilled beer.
Thai Squid Cake (RM12)
Sometimes I don’t quite like my fish cake to be too mushy, and Lobbee’s homemade version had a firmer texture by adding the chewy squid rings into the herbed fish paste.
Chicken Skewers with Sticky Rice (RM9)
A popular street food in the north east part of Thailand, they usually have it together with pork instead of chicken. Served together with sticky rice that was chewier and less oily, chef lightly marinated the chicken breast and thigh before pan fried it till tender perfection.
Stir Fried Flat Noodles (RM15)
The secret to this tasty dish lies in the noodles and its sweet savory oyster soy sauce. Served together with crispy fried chicken skin, chewy brown squid, scrambled egg and fresh lettuce, chef creatively uses ‘chee cheong fun’ instead of the normal flat noodles for a smoother texture.
Lobbee Combo (RM98)
This is a dish to be shared for sure! Recommended for 3-4 pax, Lobbee Combo is a must-order signature here that served with lots of seafood goodness, including the highlight Asian green lobster, king crab legs, salmon, squid, mussels and soft boiled eggs. For noodles, diners can choose between Thai kuey teow, Thai instant noodles, flat noodles or vermicelli noodles.
Enjoy while it’s still hot, the addictive spiciness and freshness of the ingredients will certainly whet any palate. Take a spoonful of the broth too as it had all the great essence from the fresh seafood. I really love this!
