Mouth-watering lobster rolls at Waterman’s Lobster Co

A sign of a truly incredible foodie experience is if I’m still salivating over my food hours after I’ve gobbled it up.

In the case of the warm, buttery Connecticut lobster roll packed full of red meaty lobster that I had for lunch (along with chips and a drink) at Waterman’s Lobster Co, instead of becoming full, I had strong cravings for the lobster roll all the way up to dinner.

It’s a brand new day now, and I am still craving a bite of the one and only delicious, not too rich, but still buttery, lobster roll.

For $2 extra, I had shoestring chips seasoned with a touch of chilli on the side.

Lobster rolls reign supreme in the USA, and I was lucky to have tasted a Maine-style lobster roll at The Lobster Roll in New York’s Chelsea Markets. Waterman’s Lobster Co has taken the American example and has somehow perfected on it, turning t into the best lobster roll I’ve ever had!

Moving on to the other food – the corn cobs with butter chilli (they really love their butter!) were good, but not exceptional.

The ginger beer, mint, cucumber and honey mule was another highlight!!! Crisp, fresh, refreshing, and the bitter and sweet flavours were balanced just right.

I will definitely be returning and next time I am looking forward to trying the other crowd favourite, the Maine lobster roll, and of course, another ginger mule.
