After a few drinks we headed over to Golden Century and pretty much stuffed our faces on overpriced seafood. Thankfully, I wasn’t footing the bill, as I’m sure it was a scary sight at the end of the night. We ordered all the dishes to come together and then fell silent for about a whole…oh…12 minutes or so as we devoured every scrap.
The feast consisted of steamed scallops, stir-fired prawns and the butter-poached lobster. The cool thing about this dining experience was that one full wall of Golden Century is lined with a huge lobster/seafood tank and your meal is literally caught as you watch! A little inhumane you might think…but it sure leads to a tasty dinner!
The steamed scallops were cooked perfectly and presented on the shell in a beautiful sauce of soy, ginger, lemongrass and scallions. I loved the stir-fried shrimp; plump and juicy, they were served on a bed of crispy noodles and sweetly sauced scallions and vegetables. But the lobster! The lobster was incredible; everything you’d expect a butter-poached lobster to be: sweet, succulent, tender and oh-so-buttery!

Surprisingly, after a considerable amount of food and drink, we still managed to pull ourselves together to venture out in search of some more fun. And when I moved into my house the next day, my new housemate and I bonded over our respective hangovers in the backyard sunshine of our new ‘home’.
