Posts Tagged ‘lobster sandwiches’

First things first. I am obsessed with this mirror. So if you go to the Brooklyn Flea next weekend and buy it, I will come after you, break in your window next to the fire escape, and be out in less than seven seconds. You’ve been warned.

Although, its’ not the exact size I want. I want it to be more of a rectangle, but this color is gorgeous to me so I feel like I should just buy it already. I mean, I wanted it months ago and it’s still waiting for me.

Anyway, let’s talk about some snackies, shall we? I freaking LOVE the Brooklyn Flea. LOVE IT.

We had some Red Hook Lobster Pound:

I had one of their mini lobster rolls at the BK Blogs event back in April, so I was more than willing to split an entire roll with my mom. For the record, I also had her try Luke’s over the weekend and her vote went to Red Hook. FYI.

Another lovely, lovely thing we tried was from The Good Batch. And oh my goodness.

Dutch stroopwafels, just like we had in Belgium and Amsterdam! I was so glad to be there with my mom, since we had the stroopwafels together in Europe. And then I saw the sign for the ice cream sandwich!

The. Best. Ice. Cream. Sandwich. I. Ever. Had.

There are no words. And I absolutely hate that phrase. Basically, you need to get yourself to the Brooklyn Flea, not buy my mirror and instead have snacks from Red Hook Lobster Pound and The Good Batch. Maybe a People’s Pop, too.

I also bought these fancy shoes from Guatemala:

They probably cost a $1.50 in Guatemala, but let’s be honest… am I going there any time soon? Probably not. Probably never! So I’ll pay a pretty penny more for some lovely shoesies. Now I just have to break them in so they stop giving me blisters!

I love The Mermaid Inn. Full disclosure: I am doing some work for them. You may see some of these photos elsewhere on the interwebs eventually (not the ones of me and P though, of course). I loved the Mermaid even before working for them (obviously, or I wouldn’t want to work for them), but I still thought you should know.

So that’s me and P on the Upper West Side and here’s P with Nora:

And here’s the Mermaid:

Love that lady! And the good stuff:

Baby Grand Platter! Can I get this every single time I come to the Mermaid, please? It’s the perfect combination of oysters, clams, and lobster knuckles. Let’s have a closer look, shall we? Oysters and clams:

Lobster knuckles:

If you’ve never tried an oyster because you can’t get over the “texture” or something, you need to get over it and try one IMMEDIATELY. They are delicious and so refreshing and now that I work for the Mermaid, they are on the brain 24/7. I’m surprised they haven’t shown up in my dreams yet.

Another thing you should know: lobster knuckles are the easiest thing to eat!

Whoever came up with the idea of serving lobster this way is a genius. Already cracked open for you, you just have to pull them apart a little bit and there’s your lovely lobster. My goodness.

For our entrees, we ordered different things so we could sample eachother’s.

Salmon for Nora with brussels and beets behind it. Derlish.

Whole roasted Idaho brook trout for P. Don’t let the eyes creep you out. P lost one on the table for a little bit, haha.

And lobster sandwich for me. Um, there’s no such thing as too much lobster. And have you ever had Old Bay fries? Cause they are awesome. The more you know…

And finally, The Mermaid gives complimentary chocolate pudding for dessert:

Lovely, lovely. Love The Mermaid. And if you haven’t been in one of the THREE Manhattan locations, you pretty much have no excuse now that you’ve seen the goods. And I work there. :)
