What makes a lobster roll a super delicious experience ? It all starts with a basic ingredient the roll, it has to be a fresh hot dog roll toasted or a brioche bun soft and sweet to envelop the fresh seafood tastes. The lobster has to be a mix of tail, claw and knuckles for each contributes to that mouth bite blend that indeed engulfs that truly fresh ocean flavor of lobster. Some people have to lay down a bed of lettuce first between the lobster and roll to keep the roll from getting soggy and create a cripsness to that first bite. What you choose to add to the lobster is your choice but if you add some mayo add the one with best flavor to enhance that fresh ocean flavor and a little bit of celery is just right. Everyone has their favorite spots and polls have been taken to find the best and the top ten were posted on line.Some purists, especially folks from Connecticut perfer theirs on a toasted hot dog roll with a little lemon, butter, salt and pepper. On Cape you can get the purist at Arnold's Lobsterand Clam Bar in Eastham on Rte 6 and JT's Seafood in Brewster. The Yankee Magazine boosts of the best places to get a Lobster roll on Cape Cod but there are so many more great spots.For me my favorite over the top is at the Raw Bar in Mashpee at the Popponeset Marketplace filled with enough Lobster for two meals. All around Cape Cod there are great food stops with great Lobster Rolls and if you find one, share your finds with us. I like my rolls with just the freshness of Lobster but have tried a sprinkle of ginger to be a great kick if you like ginger. If you are ever on the road in Maine then try Highroller Lobster Company because they have developed different flavored sauces so the customers can kick up their rolls with flavor. Have fun along the Lobster Trail and happy eating !!
