So I’m a big lobster fan as some of you may know. What are some good lobster dishes you have had recently? It doesn’t have to be a whole lobster but anything with lobster meat.
I went to the beach tavern on Wednesday night and they served up a nicely broiled 1.5lb bug that was honestly over weight. I swear this would tip the scales over 1.5 and it was a nice hard shell. For 35 bucks I got : sunset view, ample parking where idiots arent going to smash my ride and dent my doors, salty air and a fresh breeze, and some great service. Overall this was a nice lobster experience.
I’d like to hear some other nice trips from HO fans.
That dish looks great and is something I would order in a restaurant. That is, I am not a fan of paying restaurant prices for a simple steamed lobster. So we can put the Angry Lobster from Rooneys in the mix as well, it’s expensive but it is not something I can do easily at home.
That said the best lobster dish I had this summer was homemade lobster rolls. Lusty Lobster was having a sale on new shell, steamed, 1 1/4 lobsters. I think it was 5 for $35. With those 5 lobsters I made 4 ridiculous lobster rolls with very little effort. Served on buttered and grilled potato long rolls, I didn’t search out the top split ones.
Viking do you ever stop in Kittery? I like the jumbo ones right next to the trading post. They are 20+ but packed with meat. Last time they yelled at me for having a beer on the picnic table. Apparently byob isn’t a thing up there.
I also like the rolls at barnacle billys. Yes it is a tourist trap but the product is great and I love the view.
Tom…good stuff buddy. I’m happy to see you take advantage of some good deals. You scraped all that knuckle meat out right? ; ) any good pics?
Yup. The new shell made it real easy to get all the claw meat. Unfortunately no pictures.
Also, in the past, I’ve defended Bahr’s as a place to get basic seafood …no pastas, or anything more adventurous than clams, oysters, fried/grilled fish. I still stand by that assessment. HOWEVER, I made the fateful choice of ordering the lobster roll at Moby’s earlier in the summer. Horrific doesn’t do it justice, I didn’t see one lump of lobster in there, it was all what seemed to be stringy processed leg meat. Very disappointing.
Viking. I think we are talking about different spots possibly. The one I go to is the outdoor picnic place north of the trading post. It is almost attached to the parking lot. If you haven’t been there they have a good lobster roll…not the most flavorful but dollar for dollar the jumbo roll has the most meat for your buck
