My first time at Burger and Lobster was over a year ago and I absolutely had to go again. I had told Loyin that the next time I was in town, I absolutely had to go. So, I absolutely had to go. It was very important. Absolutely important.
When we got there, it was dinner time therefore the restaurant was full. Thank God, the waiting time was not very long. While waiting for a table, we sat down at the bar and sipped our drinks while I played Temple Run (Chubby Dija here: She’s a pro Temple Runner!). We were then summoned to our table. Our orders came about 10 minutes after we sat down, big plus.
Burger and Lobster has only three items on its menu; Lobster, Lobster roll and a Burger. Why would you go to a Lobster place and order a burger that’s not made of lobster meat though? (Okay, I know there are many answers to this question but you get my point. -_-)
My first time at Burger and Lobster, I ordered a lobster so this time I decided to get the lobster roll. Ms. Loyin had to order a lobster, again. She has said that she will try the lobster roll one day. One day. When you order the lobster, you have to crack open the legs in order to get to the meat and I’m not a fan of that but it’s worth it. Especially when paired with that lovely garlic butter sauce. Worth it.
The lobster meat in the lobster roll tasted too fishy on its own but with the garlic butter sauce, it was amazing. The fact that the sauce has garlic in it might put some of you off but the sauce wasn’t garlicky. The fishy taste was perfectly masked and one could enjoy the meat (for those of you like me who have a love-hate relationship with fish). The lobster meat chunks, which were big, were also generous. Kudos!
The roll was divine! Light, fluffy, buttered toast. Yummy! If you’re not a fan of cold food, this isn’t for you. But you should still try it. Just one bite. The salad on the side was lovely! I mean, it had croutons; what’s not to love? The cheese melted in my mouth and I was left wanting more.
One more for the road…
Somebody should open a Burger and Lobster in Nigeria.
Before then though, making your own lobster rolls is easy. Just follow this recipe!
