Living in Los Angeles, I rarely have the opportunity to have Lobster Rolls. In fact, I never had a lobster roll in my life. Shocking! It’s more of an east coast thing anyways, right? I mean, it’s lobster. When I think of lobster, and lobster rolls, I think of states like Maine or east coast cities near the water. That is why when I saw the Lobsta Truck at the Santa Anita Food Truck Fest, I jumped on the opportunity — the opportunity to try my first lobster roll — from a food truck of all places.
Let me just tell you a little about this food truck fest. This places was packed! There were so many people waiting in line for food, and the Lobsta Truck had one of the longest lines. Kudos to you guys. Check out the video below to see how long it was. (It’s fun to listen in on the people chatting in line about what they ate.) The line literally snaked around other trucks and other lines. It almost became hard to distinguish which line was for the Lobsta Truck.
This truck offers a simple menu — lobster rolls, crab rolls, and clam chowder. They even have woopie pies and ice cream sandwiches, but I came here for the lobster roll and clam chowder. So how was my first lobster roll? Freaking delicious — I mean, it is lobster after all. Yeah, it was my first lobster roll, and I don’t have any value of comparison. It is lobster — it’s good no matter what. Thankfully, at 12 bucks a pop, they sure didn’t skimp on the meat. There were huge chunks of lobster meat in every bite. The best part was the split top bread, perfectly buttered, and perfectly toasted on each side. The worst part was noticing that I had fished it all. All good things must come to an end, and this time around, it was the lobster roll.
This truck opened my eyes to lobster rolls. Where can I get a good lobster roll in Los Angeles anyways? Until I find that restaurant, the Lobsta Truck is going to have to do for now. By the way, you guys should feel honored @LobstaTruck — you guys served me my first lobster roll!
