MissY had a sudden craving for lobster rolls. Most coincidentally, I read about the new Boston Seafood Shack at Great World City. With lotsa squealing (from MissY), we zipped down for lunch.
It is a casual space and thankfully, it wasn’t crowded when we got there around 12:15pm on a weekday.
We both went for the premium lobstah* roll ($18), the purpose of our trip. We psyched ourselves to set our expectations right given that the price tag is lower than their cousins at Pince & Pints or Market Grill.
There were generous chunks of meat but not as chunky and the sauce not as creamy as other rolls we have had (in fact, it had a slight Indian spice flavour to it).
The meat was more stringy at parts (which prompted MissY to comment that it was more like crab meat). And OMG, she was close! – upon googling, we found out that it was 50% lobster meat and 50% crayfish. Hmm, we felt a little “cheated” but for that price, I guess we were not very bright to expect 100% lobster. Is that why it is a “lobstah” and not a lobster? (*lightbulb moment!)
We also had the crab cakes ($9) to share. I found it slightly over-fried and a little too flour-y/bread-y. Didn’t like this too much.
