I was watching an episode of Shark Tank (which I watch religiously I may add) that had an update of a business with lobster trucks from LA that flew in fresh lobsters daily from Maine. Ever since then, I have been CRAVING a good lobster roll. They really aren’t done here in Sydney.
But…I found one!
The Rook, located atop an office building in the CBD, has take offs of two staples – burgers and lobsters. And, low and behold, one of the items is a lobster roll!
Was it as good as the ones back home in Maine and New Hampshire? No. Nor did I expect it to be. But it was damn good. Different certainly – this one had large chunks of potatoes, corn, jalapeños and a spice that I can’t place my finger on but know well….the red one…anyways…not exactly the New England lobster roll I love.
But, again, it was a good riff off of the classic.
And satisfied my craving…for now.
