It doesn’t matter what Disney says. Sebastian is a lobster. He might have been adorable when we were little, but at this moment, the only thing we want to do with Sebastian is eat him. And luckily, one of our favourite Italian spots has just whipped up a whole new lobster menu.

There are so many reasons we love Papermoon, right from its stylish interiors with black and white classic movie photos framed on the walls to its authentic Italian fare. We are pretty regular here because Papermoon almost always gets it right with its consistently good quality and taste of food, and unfailing service.

Our dish of the month is spaghetti all’astice nel suo sugo con pomodoro leggero e piccante (we’re already giggling imagining you trying to pronounce that). While the name of the dish makes no sense at all if you’re not Italian, the dish itself is delightful. Because, when you sauté 500gm of Canadian lobster in its shell, with spaghetti in a light, spicy tomato sauce, you just can’t go wrong. We’re talking oodles of flavour. There are a bunch of other items too if your lobster craving isn’t fixed with the unpronounceable item that’s made it to our monthly highlight. You can have lobster with risotto, pappardelle or just served over baked focaccia with buffalo mozzarella and fresh tomato. Clearly, spoiled for choice.

If these delectable dishes don’t make you want to go literally under the sea, we don’t know what will. Maybe a portrait of Sebastian?
QR230. Ongoing. Open Sun-Fri 9am-10.30am, 11.30am-11pm, Sat noon-4pm. Papermoon, Jaidah Square, Umm Ghwailina, (4016 6000).
