The second stop on my journey had to be impressive. For some reason unbeknownst to myself, I turned to my friend Joe for advice. The only reason this is a surprising maneuver is because I basically hate him 80% of the time. He, very much like myself, has an incredibly knack for never having a fully satiated palate, so I begrudgingly turned to him for his thoughts.
Thankfully, he had a pretty great place to recommend; La Mer Seafood Co. in Armonk, New York. My frenemy had been there a few times and had nothing but great things to say about the joint. I have an unrelenting need to prove him wrong regardless of the scenario, so obviously I jumped at an opportunity to put their lobster roll to the test. If anything, at least I’d to be able to stick it to Joe if the treat didn’t prove to be as delightful as he framed it to be.
La Mer’s Lobster Roll came in the form of a lobster salad, which, while certainly delightful, wasn’t that bountiful in the steamed crustacean.
Look at that thing. It’s filled to the brims with incredibly delightful additions. It was in a super light mayo, had some sassy seasoning, celery, and was laid to rest on a buttered piece of bread. The taste blew my mind and left me with a happy belly.
The sandwich looked awesome and as I noted, left my tummy quite pleased. They didn’t offer any additional nom-noms with the roll, but it was really no sweat seeing as the taste was so insane on my palate.
This was quite an expensive lobster roll at $18.99 considering it was comprised of more components than just lobster meat and didn’t have any additional accouterments a la fries, pickle, etc. If anything, I paid for the amazing taste and not so much the actual amount of lobster. Joe, whom I removed from Facebook friendship prior to this post, can only bask in the glory of my belly leaving fulfilled with taste but not so much actual volume of lobster. Friendship status: always pending.
