Just what are these crustaceans know as Pacific Lobsters, Spiny Lobsters, or Rock Lobsters? Just about, they are not at all intently associated to clawed lobsters nor do they taste as very good.
Ahead of I experienced my to start with Japanese marriage ceremony banquet spiny lobster tail (often terrible by the way!), My 1st spiny lobster tail was in Koh Samui, Thailand, in 1986. I arrived in Na Thon to throngs of farang (foreigners) waiting around to board vans to get them to the a variety of seashores. Very well, I was in no particular temper to hurry up and chill out so I even though I'd check out the port until eventually the crowds thinned out.
I try to remember a lot of fruits, magazine stands, the police station, a barbershop, and a fish marketplace that created me want to gag (afterwards I dropped a reversi of that one particular on the local Thais, but that's a different tale!).
Lastly, I ended up at a restaurant (just a bench definitely) with a signal that claimed, “lobster”. I requested the proprietor how significantly, and she advised me fifty baht (2 US pounds then). Good, I explained to her I had one particular straightaway.
I do not what I was expecting. Up to that point, everything I had ate in Thailand had been unforgettable- in a single way or a further. But this spiny lobster dish I have no memory of, apart from to say that I ate lobster tail on a non-descript wood bench. Either she was a terrible cook dinner, or the fish was regarded also extremely esteemed to disguise it's flavor by any way of sauce or condiments, but it tasted like it experienced been cooked the night time right before and wasrely reheated (which is not inadvertently).
In any scenario, I have only stuck gold with spiny lobster after, whilst clawed lobster has constantly been amazing. That far too is yet another story.
