Jiu Gong Ge (九宫格火锅) serves one jumbo size seafood platter that is not on their menu and warrant youtubers to fly over to the restaurant just to try this jumbo seafood platter.
The jumbo size seafood platter consist of over 10 types of seafood served simmering on a large tray with warmers. The jumbo lobster platter (Set E) consist of large Boston Lobsters, prawns, crawfish, extra large bamboo clams, a heap of Asari clams, a pool of mussels, palm size oysters, live mud crabs, scallops, noodles, quail eggs, carrots, vermicelli and sweet corns in a spicy soup base.
This jumbo size platter needs advance order of 2 days for them to bring in the live Boston lobsters for this curated dish.
These lobsters are then dispatched by driving the tip of a chef knife between the eyes on the head. Boiled quickly in water to keep the lobster at its optimum quality.
The whole lobster is then removed from the poaching and immersed in a ice bath to stop the cooking process.
The Boston lobster is served whole during platting and you can request it to be halved for ease of consumption after you have taken the instagram-worthy picture with the lobsters tower.
The Boston lobster is also prized for the head butter or tomalley. Buttery and creamy consistence that can be scoop up using a spoon and consider delicacy by many lobster aficionados.
The lobster tail is easily lifted off the shell and meat is fork tender.
Deshell the Boston lobster claw and enjoy it by dipping it in the spicy umami soup broth in the seafood platter. The meat claw wins the meat tail of the lobster hands down as it is softer and more tender, whereas the tail is more of a crunchy firm texture.
Live mud crabs are used for this jumbo size platter. For crab lovers, you can enjoy a good amount of mud crabs in this platter.
