Hotel Equatorial's Orientica restaurant is importing live Boston lobsters from the US for the feast this month
Customers will have an opportunity to enjoy the fresh lobster, which is prepared into sashimi or porridge.
The Orientica Seafood Restaurant & Bar in Ho Chi Minh City's District 5 has a lobster feast this month.
Located on the second floor at the Hotel Equatorial Ho Chi Minh City, the restaurant proudly serves fresh lobster from the cold waters of the Atlantic Ocean, which are imported alive from the US.
The lobster is prepared with seasonal catches and fresh ingredients, to provide a wonderful gastronomic experience.
At the restaurant this March enjoy the lobster in two different styles - eastern and western.
The eastern style features fresh lobster, which is made into sashimi or porridge.
If it is western style, chefs will prepare the lobster in many ways such as thermidor, grilled, wok fried with X.O sauce, braised with superior stock, and pan-fried with truffle yaki sauce and vegetables.
Chef Wong Young Phun will make his signature lobster dishes at this event.
The Orientica Seafood Restaurant and Bar's unique "fire, water and ice" components offer a wide-ranging selection of sights, sounds, and smells plus the excitement of having a meal prepared in front of one's eyes.
The restaurant is decorated in two main colors - black and red.
This creates not only a feeling of luxury and modernity but also a sense of mystery and intrigue which is heightened by the sound of water murmuring down on to the stones.
There is some moss, large snail shells, white gravel, a bamboo ceiling, and Chinese-style round window frame, giving the restaurant an eastern air.
There is a teppanyaki counter, live seafood, and an open kitchen enclosed by a glass wall, allowing diners to enjoy the cooking skills of talented chefs who use fresh seafood to make their food.
