Waterfront Seafood Haven : Hooks @ The Yarra

It was a beautiful breezy Sunday to laze around the city along the scenic Yarra River.  Of course, cam-whoring was part of the ritual and I had to pose with my new Birkenstock which came in time for spring.  Yay, happy feet!  All I need to do now is to get my pedicure done 🙂


Ok Ok, nuff said about my feet ! Yikes.  We bought a social voucher to Hooks @ The Yarra for a Lobster Thermidor lunch.  Lobster is one of those seafood that is not on my daily menu so definitely looking forward to it.  It was a truly perfect day to chill with beer and waterfront view.


The moment we have been waiting for (wait for it *drumroll*) …. to sink our teeths into the lobster!  Each of us got half a lobster only 😦  But the the ultra juicy, buttery sauce was very well blended with hot mustard and the lobster meat, so much so it gave me a “ping” through my senses.  Thoroughly enjoyable and delicious.  And it goes really well with the risotto served by the side.

Verdict : Seafood…*drool*.  This lunch has given me a preview of seafood cooking in Hooks @ The Yarra and I can say that I will be returning for more of that well cooked range of seafood menu in this restaurant.
