What are some fantastic book the cook options that you guys have had on SQ? from first-hand experience only please!!
I am booked on the lobster thermidor in 2 week's time and will probably return to this post to update it once I get internet at my destination.
Having said that, some people say it's overrated.
Back to SG I am on the Sauteed Pork with Butter Soy Sauce, will update here again.
Many people are going to recommend the lobster thermidor. And like Aaron, many of them will also tell you it's overrated. Personally, I found the dish to be somewhat disappointing but that was largely because I never knew what a lobster thermidor was in the first place.
FYI - it's chunks of lobster cooked separately, mixed with a cheesy filling and then placed back in the lobster shells and baked. It is NOT (as I had wrongly imagined based on the photos) a whole lobster tail baked whole in the shell with a cheese topping.
My personal recommendation for Book the Cook is satay.
My personal favourite is the Thai style cod fish with rice. Sounds simple, but really tasty.
Lobster thermidor is so overrated (But I guess you have to try it once).

I heard very good reviews about the Lobster thermidor and ordered it on my last flight.
Honestly, I didnt like it so much and I prefer the ones available a la carte on that day - just my preference :)
