3 unique lobster dishes to try in Richmond

Lobster ramen at Gyo O ($19)
Served in a ginormous bowl, this epic ramen comes with half a lobster with a gigantic claw.  The poached egg just brought everything an extra mile.  There was enough ramen noodles in there to feed 2 people.  You have a choice between miso and tonkatsu broth.  I went with the latter.  The broth was the best part as it had a lot of depth and richness from the lobster.  The lobster meat itself, though slightly over cooked, was still very plump and meaty. For $19, this luxury ramen is not on the regular menu.  You can ask the server for its availability.   If you're able to finish this enormous dish by yourself, the empty bowl is large enough to be adorn as a victory hat.

Lobster congee at Fisherman's Terrace ($20)
Best hangover breakfast to have on a Sunday morning with your dim sum ritual.  Served in a traditional wooden pot, it is a blend of flavourful lobster-simmered, silky congee is great for sharing. The pieces of lobster are pre-smashed so they can easily be enjoyed without getting your hands all dirty.

Lotus wrapped rice with lobster, shrimp and scallops at Golden Bauhinia ($38)
This family-size dish will definitely fill you up.  It is definitely the high end version of the typical 'lo mai gai' at dim sum.  While they are not stingy on the seafood, you will definitely be stuffed by what seems to be bottomless amount of glutenous rice.  And don't forget to pack some gum, this dish is loaded with steamed garlic.
