I’ve written about Urban Lobster Shack before, but I went there before my departure from the Financial District one last time to check out their new lunch special – $10 for a lobster roll and a Caesar salad.
The lobster roll with container of cole slaw and Caesar dressing.
Caesar salad, which was alright, pretty standard, nothing amazing. The dressing was really flavorful though – very garlicky and creamy, which was pretty cool. Not sure if they make it themselves, but I wasn’t complaining.
The lobster roll, however… well, last time I’d complained that it was missing that sweet lobster taste. This time was no better; in fact, much worse, it had that ever so slight fishy taste that left a lingering fishiness in my mouth for hours afterwards, despite lots of gum. Disgusting. You know when you’ve eaten something and your mouth just tastes BAD? Yeah, that was this. I did NOT get sick, though (something I was paying careful attention to because if I did, I was for sure going to b*tch and moan about that!). Unfortunate because this is an excellent deal. $10 for a small lobster roll and a Caesar salad with slammin’ dressing!
Yvo says: I’m not going to hate because I know it’s not lobster season and I didn’t get sick. I’m sure this could be a one-off that it was a lil fishy, not fresh. That’s fine. But it seems like the lobster roll really is just alright… maybe stick to the chowder, which I REALLY enjoyed last time. For a tiny hole in the wall (literally, it’s a hole in the wall, all orders are to-go only), they have a pretty extensive menu, too. I definitely suggest giving them a shot for some of their more interesting offerings.
recommended… maybe not the lobster roll, though, sorry
