I'd heard from the leading blogs and food newsletters about how Red Hook Lobster's lobster rolls were unbeatable. I had heard about the lines outside their food truck that tweets its location for the day.
Red Sox hat on, I went to investigate. This lobster rolls lives up to the hype. I got the meal that includes Cape Cod chips and Maine Root soda (had to get the delicious root beer).
The pieces of lobster were not just chunky, there were massive. The dressing was slight and not the goopy, mayonnaisey mess you get in some rolls. The star was rightfully the lobster. The first bite was logistically intimidating as the roll was pilled tall and it seemed that parts would drop out. However, my caution proved unfounded. The assembly of lobster in a perfect sized potato roll was immaculate: nothing fell with that first bite.
I tried to stab what looked like a precarious piece of claw meat, but it was soundly lodged in there. First class construction! The lobster meat was sweet and cold; dusted with mild paprika and shards of celery and chive. A worthy addition to the local food truck scene. I'm really happy these folks expanded from Brooklyn.
