Posts Tagged ‘cheapest lobster ever’

Uh oh. We know what that is… a lobster roll! And where is it from? James Hook and Co in Boston! BOSTON. I have wanted to go to Boston for years. I’m not sure why, but I had the feeling I would really like it. So last weekend D and I decided at the last minute to pack up and go for the weekend. Man, I love the freedom we have. So Boston it was. And a lobster roll was the first thing on the docket.

Luckily D doesn’t mind when I play tour guide because there were only three things I really wanted to do in Boston: 1) Get a lobster roll. 2) Get clam chowder 3) Walk around aimlessly. Of course we did all three. Here is number 1.

I read about James Hook and Co. somewhere and it was the lucky winner for our lobster roll breakfast on Saturday. Yep, breakfast. Why not?

I kind of love this picture of D checking out the lobsters. There were so many and they were huge!

Huge I tell you! Those poor babies… I wonder if they know they’re about to get eaten. Poor things… but they are delicious.

At James Hook and Co, the lobster roll is a whopping $12. I challenge you to find a cheaper lobster roll in the US. Welcome to Boston, City Mitten. I love lobster. But now I’m going to say something I don’t really want to say but I have to: I like Luke’s Lobster in NYC better. And it’s not just because I’m an NYC snob. Or Because I follow Luke’s on Twitter. It’s just better! I like the little added spice at Luke’s and the toasted bread. BUT if you tell me I have to eat James Hook and Co lobster rolls for the rest of my life, I will not complain, because they are good, they just aren’t Luke’s. Is this blasphemy? I don’t think so because Luke drives in their lobster from Maine, so it’s pretty legit. Anyway! What I really wanted to try at James Hook and Co and didn’t was their stuffed scallops and stuffed clams and clam chowder and lobster chowder. So I need to go back and try all of those. And maybe get something by the lb. And prepare it for myself? Ha, that’s funny.

Really, it’s all good in the hood. I mean will you look at that pile of lobster? Nothing to complain about here.

I’ve got lots more love for Boston coming up after this… not gonna lie I could probably live there one day. ONE DAY I said! :)
