Eating “Lobsta” Rolls
Posted by Shannon on 03/08/2012
Delicious, delicious crustacean. Until last Saturday, I’d never eaten a lobster roll. The Food Truck Festival in Santa Anita changed all that. This $12 lunch, served on a toasted split top roll, was worth the wait. Simplistic and done properly. Large chunks of lobster claw and tail meat were the only contents of this sandwich.
Prior to the mid-1800s, lobster was typified as food for the lower classes. Last weekend, I was on a mission to hunt out the Lobsta Truck, amidst the 50 other food trucks there that day. Chillin in 85+ degrees and direct sunlight at the Santa Anita Race Track, I had my day of reckoning.
When the little red & white checkered food boat descended towards my face from the Lobsta Truck pick-up window… I was antsy with delight. I poured the clarified butter on top and devoured it all. Well done Lobsta Truck, see you Tuesday at the Gateway LA food truck festival for another lunchtime indulgence ;).
