Coughing out $45++ for a Lobster Roll is not something I do, or to be done, on a regular basis. But when it is payday, you splurge on a sexy one. My friends, please. Only a sexy one will do.
The Market Grill delivered this Lobster Roll tonight with strong grilled score marks on the soft buttery brioche roll. If this ain’t sexy enough for you, I do not know what else could ever be.
The brioche roll was crispy on the outside, dreamily tender within. The huge lobster pieces, coated in thick Mayo-based dressing, were cooked to perfection. Devoid of any rubberiness. Satisfaction guaranteed. It took me a lot of willpower not to finish and take away half of it. For my parents, research purposes. We need to compare with Burger & Lobster in London come October.
Onion matchsticks. Light, shatteringly crisp fried red onions. This was Perfection. But be careful, they are very addictive. Plan to exercise this off beforehand. I went home and worked out to this after.
Crispy Pig’s Ear. Don’t bother ordering this. Pizzeria Mozza does a spectacular version of this pork body part.
My friend’s hulk-like Burger. Beef patty + bacon. It was a calorific winner.
Then we ordered two desserts. The first, an Apple Crumble – disconcerting HUGE raisins. Crumble wasn’t buttery and impressive enough. Still it could not beat the letdown of the pig’s ears. Plus never mind about this dessert because…
… Desserts 2: Warm Walnut Brownie was the perfect finish!
