Burger & Lobster Cardiff - Lunch menu

Last week Burger and Lobster in Cardiff departed from the minimum £20 spend on food and officially launched their new lunch menu. This menu exclusive to the Cardiff branch is designed to get more folk through the door during the day and at £12 it is a tempting proposition. 
On offer is a smaller version of their famed £20 burger, a delightful sounding lobster nicoise and finally an indulgent lobster mac & cheese. 

Cinio means lunch in Welsh - nice touch.

Having been invited to try some of these dishes at a recent #tanktalks event I can vouch for the lobster nicoise. Half a lobster (steamed in my case) served on top of a well assembled nicoise salad. To me the ultimate summer dish. The lobster was perfectly cooked and having the opportunity to compare steamed and grilled lobster side by side, steamed wins every time. 

As someone who is not massively into burgers (shock, horror!) and has not been taken up by the recent fever pitch interest in burgers within Cardiff, my verdict on their burgers can be summed up by one word, immense. If the small version tastes as good as the full size one then it is £12 well spent. 
As for the lobster mac and cheese, I like mac and cheese and I like lobster but cheesy lobster I'm not sure and will have to try it before I pass judgement.

The lunch menu runs weekdays only from restaurant opening to 5pm. Personally I think £12 for the above dishes is reasonable to spend on the quality of product you get, but it may not be something you do very regularly. That and it requires you to be in the centre of town during the week. If it was extended to the weekend then that would be brilliant and certainly would see far more people through the door. I've always liked Burger and Lobster and in my opinion it is one of the coolest restaurants in town. Good food and drink (cocktails are killer), great atmosphere and fantastic staff and service. So if you have been thinking about going to see what all the fuss is about then the new lunch menu might be right up your street. Want to know a little more about Burger and Lobster Cardiff?
