Overheard in a Chinese Restaurant

Customer: What is in the lobster sauce?
Employee: It's a brown sauce.
Customer: But what is in it?
Employee: Ahhhh....

I wonder if he didn't know? Or perhaps his English was not up to the explanation. Other possibilities?

At least the employee didn't say, "You don't need to know what's in it."

My friend was told that while she was in Hong Kong (she's Chinese). Her response: "Then I don't need to eat it!"

I was wondering if it was sauce FOR a lobster or sauce OF a lobster (please try not to cringe at my grammarly mess). Usually it is the former which has no lobster in it at all. Soy sauce and sugar, maybe scallions and ginger are all possibilities, though.
