It all started after a trip to New England. Lobster rolls are all over New England. Brothers, Justin and Winston Mi, tried many different seafood shacks serving up lobster rolls in Maine. A few weeks after the trip, they knew that this would be a great fit for SoCal. After finding a live lobster supplier, a New England roll baker, and a recipe for success, they launched the Lobsta Truck in 2010. I met Justin in 2011 right before the OC Foodie Fest. Since then, they have launched trucks in Orange County, Los Angeles County, and San Francisco along with the Lobsta Shack (Brick and mortar spin-off that opened in Winter 2014).
Clam Chowder is New England-style. It is rich and creamy with the perfect thickness that sticks to the back of the spoon. It is chocked full of clams. It would be a cool option to serve it in a bread boule. Rating: 5/5
Lobsta Roll is fresh Maine lobster on a toasted split top roll with your choice of butter or seasoned mayo. The lobster is flown in 3 times a week so you know you’re getting the freshest lobster possible. I personally like my lobster with butter. It brings out the sweetness of the meat and the bread soaks up any excess for a great flavor. The lobster portion is generous, but you can always get two if you still have the lobster craving. Rating: 5/5
Crab Roll is fresh Dungeness crab on a toasted split top roll with butter or seasoned mayo. I personally like my crab with butter also. It accentuates the sweetness and the brininess of the crab. And just like the Lobsta Roll, the bread soaks up any extract butter for a more scrumptious bite. The crab portion is generous. Rating: 5/5
Labadie’s Bakery supplies the Maine Original Whoopie Pies to add a sweet treat. It is concave chocolate cakes with creamy vanilla filling in the middle, similar to a Suzie Q. It’s a popular Pennsylvania Dutch treat on the East Coast. Rating: 4.5/5
