*EDIT* December 16, 2014 - NEW MENU ITEMS HAVE BEEN ADDED - SEE BELOW!
Lobster lovers rejoice! The Lobster Bar has moved and relocated to a much bigger space in Itaewon. You can enjoy Maine and Connecticut style lobster rolls, lobster grilled cheese or a 1kg whole grilled lobster - even Chinese style lobster - all at reasonable prices with generous servings! Also, although their pop-up in Galleria (Apgujung Rodeo Station) is now closed, they are working on opening their full-time stand in the regular Galleria 494 for early 2015!

NEW ADDED MENU ITEMS!
They've only been at their new location for about a month, but already have a few new menu items which I was excited to try! I was curious what other delicious creations could be made with a lovely crustacean, so I went with some friends to find out!
MAIN - My now new favourite dish here! Chinese style lobster!
Growing up in Vancouver, every year our family would go to eat Chinese style crab for my birthday (no, I am not Chinese - I just love Chinese style crab.) I never wanted any other dishes - just different flavours of Chinese style dungeness crab. I would always get the black bean sauce crab and then rotate the second kind between cream sauce crab, ginger scallion garlic crab or deep fried garlic crab. This lobster dish here reminded me of the ginger garlic crab so much. Although I haven't done that in over 11 years!?, I think I will have to come here to continue the tradition of eating Chinese style crab (or lobster) on my birthday! I think this dish brought back a taste of "home" for me - it was either that or my comfy lululemon groove pants with their wonderful 4 way stretch luon expanding as I kept eating!
NEW AND IMPROVED LOCATION AND INTERIOR!
What? Lobster Bar - a lobster joint specialising in just that - lobster everything! The menu used to only have 4 main items on it - 2 different kinds of lobster rolls, 1 lobster grilled cheese and 1 steamed lobster item, but now it's expanded it's menu to also include things like Chinese and Singaporean Chilli lobster, different sides and soups too.
Who? Anyone who loves lobster - and delicious skinny fries.
When? Now open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner! Lunch goes from noon-3pm and dinner starts up again at 5pm until 10pm except on Sundays where they close at 9pm. Last orders for the kitchen are 30 mins. prior to closing.
Parking? No, but there is street parking and lot parking nearby (turn right into the alley after McDonald's (if McDonald's is on your right hand side) and there is lot parking on your second left alley.
Cards Accepted? Yes
Do they take reservations? Yes
Where? 서울특별시 용산구 이태원동 56-13. 56-13 Itaewon 1 (il)-dong
