So done with Red Lobster...

So I used to like red lobster, but I went the other day to a different location and ordered my usual ultimate feast and noticed immediately how salty the lobster tail was...I complained about the salt and asked for a new one and the new one was even saltier...I complained again and the lady had the nerve to tell me it comes out of the ocean salty. O_o

I have noticed that some of the dishes are very salty no matter what location and my friend told me most of the stuff comes pre packaged is this true? Do they just heat the stuff? Ugh

And can someone recommend a good seafood restaurant in gta area that has comparable prices?

If you want a good lobster dish, check out Omei Restaurant at Richmond Hill. Last time i was there, we ordered had a 9 pound lobster cooked 5 ways that fed 4 people.

small lobsters taste better than big lobsters.

just like any big chain restaurants, the food, in this case, seafood is delivered frozen in general, perhaps with a few exceptions.

9 lbs lobster ... the meat must be as tough as cowhides. I find the ones exceeding 5/6 lbs are tough already.

+1 on OMEI, amazing lobsters.

9lbs is about 220, feeds 2 - 4.

And about small being tasty...the big lobsters from OMEI is really good....

not disputing that omei's lobsters are good.
but the fact remains, small lobsters are sweeter and have less funk accumulated in the body.

Its prepared very well. At $20/lb its not a cheap meal, but I think its one of the best things to eat in the GTA! Love taking visitors there. When the guy says a 9lb lobster feeds 2-4....its way too much food for 2 or even 3 people.

But Red Lobster biscuits......ohhhhh god.

Diana's at Lawrence Av. E. and Crockford is a middle of the road place, but higher quality than Red Lobster. They prepare on site, and have a busy fish store in back to supply them. There is a real chef, something you don't get at R.Lobster or Swiss Chalet or Keg. http://dianasoysterbar.com/menu/
