This place is kind of tough to find, but well worth it. Food place is a little hole in the wall kind of behind the large fish market. Placed our order with the super friendly (in a good way) gal at the counter and then proceeded to wait for what seemed like a pretty long time before having the lovely lobster roll delivered. This was my first attempt with my new scale to do clandestine weigh in, this came in at a hearty 6 1/4 oz. Full of large chunks of tail and claw lightly mayoed on a bed of shredded lettuce, which I could have done without. Claim on the menu said the “classic” lobster roll had all the meat from a 1 1/4 lb lobster and that looked about right to me. They even trimmed off the spongies. This lobster roll was truly delicious. It had all the briny, sweet flavor, the standard white roll was grilled to buttery perfection. The clam chowder was also not to be missed. The chef seemed to take a great deal of pride in turning out a product that people were wowed by, particularly the lobster roll. He was asking everyone who ordered it how they liked it, and not in the polite, but I don’t really care, kind of way. He seemed genuinely disappointed when one guy just said good. I mean, he didn’t say so, just got the vibe. So, I asked him my new “source of the lobster” question and he actually said that he cooks each individual lobster to order for each roll! He did say that if he get super busy, he might throw in a few, as kind of an apology. Wow, I may have, but it is a rare day in lobster roll world when I encounter a lobster roll with meat so fresh that it wasn’t even cooked before I walked in the door. Well worth the wait, amazingly fresh and one of the tastiest rolls I’ve had. Highly reccomend, then head to two fat cats for the best pumpkin whoopie pies on earth, and I don’t say that lightly. If I had to find a negative here, I’d say it was the scent of the thai place that occasionally wafted over to interfere with the fresh seafood smells. But, I’m really stretching it with that, this place deserves a visit from any lobster lovers.
