So happy that our offices have moved to Santa Monica aka Food Truck Central...and super thrilled when I saw via Twitter that the new Lobsta Truck was going to be parked just around the corner from our office since I had been trying to track it down for about a month now!
I’m a little ashamed to say this but I have never before eaten a lobster roll (I know!). I was always turned off by the mayo and all the other fixings thrown into the roll when all I wanted was huge chunks of lobster meat. The plan was to try one while I was in San Francisco, but their lobster truck was working private events the weekend I visited…bummer! Would love to make it up to Maine since lobster is their thing and I know it must be killer up there but after reading about all of the research the Lobsta Truck guys did up in Maine to ensure their product was one of the best…not to mention having the fresh lobster and split-top rolls flown in all the way from New England…I was ready to dig in!
Thank goodness for butter! I love nothing more than eating my lobster or crab with warm drawn butter. Once I saw that Lobsta Truck offers the Lobsta Roll with just butter I was psyched!! You can get it w/ mayo too but Caiti and I went for butter all the way while Rosie choose the mayo version along with their Clam Chowder. (Thinking back…I should have ordered up a cup of the Clam Chowder as well…it’s been raining and cold in LA for more than a week! Perfect chowder weather!)
Still blowing my mind that this sandwich was only $11…HUGE, I mean GIANT chunks of lobster claws, tail, and knuckle overloading the toasty buttered bun! The girls were obsessed with the chunky Clam Chowder which I could see had heaping lumps of clams (always a good sign!). They also serve Crab Rolls (!), Fresh Squeezed Lemonade, Cape Cod Chips, and Whoopie Pies.
It literally does not get any better guys…I will be dreaming about this sandwich until it meets my mouth again :)
