I adore unique dining experiences, and Montreal certainly has no limit on the things that make you go hmm. Or in this case, Mmmm.
Fortunately, I had a local looking out for me, who alerted me to the real deal. The inside scoop on what this spot really serves: l'homard. The Lobster Roll.
And not just any lobster roll. A lightly grilled roll filled with huge mouthwatering pieces of lobster meat, alongside a cup or a bowl of clam chowder (depending on your appetite) with Cape Cod potato chips. Yes, the crunchiest, saltiest, best-mate-for-a-lobster-roll chips. All in all, a party for the tastebuds.
An incredible amount of delight that, though it tastes as though it should, does not break the bank. The Lobster Roll lunchbox is only $15, amazing given the amount of lobster meat they serve, not to mention the accompaniments that join it.
A true expression of the l'art de vivre de Montreal embraces so well. Delicious, treasure-of-the-season cuisine served simply with a stunning seaport backdrop.
No, it in fact does not get much better.
