Lobsters at Straits View Seafood Restaurant 海景轩海鲜酒家 in Sungai Rengit, Pengerang, Johor, Malaysia

The lobster sculpture in the town square makes it clear what Sungai Rengit is about.

I was in Johor's Lobster Town, Sungai Rengit, Pengerang at lunch time today. Here in Sungai Rengit, I had "little choice" but to indulge myself in the local speciality - which is lobster, of course.

I counted at least 8 major seafood restaurants in little Sungai Rengit town itself. Since I recently tried the benchmark lobster at Jade Garden, I decided to indulge in a little risk taking by trying another restaurant instead.

I picked the newly opened Straits View 海景轩海鲜酒家 which is located at the junction of Jalan Besar and Jalan Pasar (the only two main streets in Sungai Rengit town, Pengarang).

This was the handsome 400 gram fellow, who (unfortunately for him) caught my eye.

Lobster pricing is seasonal. Current pricing at Straits View is RM120/kg for medium sized and RM160/kg for large sized.

MR lobster was dispatched with a quick sharp blow.

I asked for MR lobster to be prepared with "superior broth" 上湯. The lobsters can be done in other ways like fried with butter, black pepper, chili, or steamed.

Straits View's lobster was beautifully done. The succulent flesh came off the shell easily in a neat single piece.

Look at the inviting plump, juicy lobster flesh layered with a golden creamy gravy. The lobster flesh was naturally sweet, tender, yet firm and slightly bouncy.

I thoroughly enjoyed my lobster at Straits View Seafood.

Besides lobster, Straits View also has fish, prawns and crabs as well as egg, vegetable and pork dishes on its menu. The boss also told me that Straits View may be adding crocodile meat on its menu in the future.

See also my second visit to Straits View where I tried out their other signature dishes.
