Finally jumping on the food truck bandwagon (or band…truck?). Thanks to foodie friend and coworker Cher, she enthusiastically let me know one day when the Lobsta Truck was just down the street from work, so it was a given I had to join her and fellow assistant Kristin.
(Here they are patiently waiting for their lobsta rolls!)
The truck was easy to spot. Aside from the bright red, the line of the hungry lobsta-lovin’ lunch goers let us know we were at the right place.
The line moves decently fast, but the wait is a bit long (particularly when you’re starving and the sweet smell of seafood is billowing towards you).
Since it is lobster, a small-ish sandwich/roll will run you 12 clams (that pun was just asking to be used ). Couple that with the $4 cup of clam chowder I had, and this lunch ended up costing a pretty penny.
I opted for no butter or mayo on the roll and it was really dry. I guess you don’t order a lobsta roll for a “light” meal! I LOVED the clam chowder. While I don’t have any true clam chowder to compare this to(haven’t had any from the other coast yet!), I can say with certainty that it beats all other over salted, watered down clam chowder I’ve had, both from a can and in a restaurant. Any east coasters with legitimate clam chowder expertise who’ve had the Lobsta Truck’s chowder, please feel free to agree or disagree
