My wife is competitive. Very competitive.
So when she had a spare afternoon before accompanying me to a lobster quiz, she used it to swot up on lobster facts.
While everyone else was enjoying the lobster dishes and Belgian beers, Grace was explaining to me what she had discovered during the day, such as a lobster's favourite sexual position and how long they live for!
It was worthwhile though, as we won a very generous prize of restaurant vouchers and a booth at Lucky Voice - another of Grace's favourite pastimes, so thanks Belgo Bill!
Anyway, on to the food...
On to the star of the show and the signature Maine Lobster with a five ounce ribeye steak.
I've always enjoyed the work involved in eating lobster (and crab) and using the precision instruments to pull, scrape and dig around for the tasty morsels of sweet meat. There's something very satisfying about it and I got stuck into my lobster and had bits of shell flying about the table as I pulled out the meat. Good stuff.
Overall, a fab night and Grace has already got the karaoke planned!
Lobsterfest runs until the end of June and you can pick up (or even eat) a whole, grilled 1lb lobster with fries and salad for £24.95. I was invited along as guest of Belgo to this bloggers event.
