I'll have the Lobster

One evening my husband and I went out for Chinese. We ordered many different dishes to taste, sweet and sour, crunchy. salty, and pungent. But then I saw lobster. - It was a stretch but I wanted to see what it was like. I don't know what I was expecting. But what I was served was not at all what I thought I would get.
My first bite was WOW, I was so surprised with what I recieved. I don't know if anyone else has ever experienced this but they delivered a steamed lobster, that was infused with a mint essence.They must of steamed it in a bamboo steamer and included mint leaves.
It was the best. Very different and fresh. Has anyone had this as well?
I have never seen it on a menu again, and the restaurant is no longer around. I often uses mint with my drinking water or when I make kabobs along with other herbs for a marinade. But never have I seen this. Have you? Please be kind if this a normal dish!
