Road Trip: Flander's Lobster Roll

Amy Kundrat

My favorite culinary moment this week? That’s easy.

I got to savor (read: inhale) this year’s inaugural lobster roll at Flanders Fish Market in East Lyme, CT. It’s served simply at Flanders, warm with a bit of butter and scallions with a toasted hot dog roll. I love the DIY of the take-out lobster roll here because it means I can ignore the superfluous and focus on the main star. And that would be the glistening warm and buttery lobster.

A lengthy road trip, warm salty sea air and a toasted hot dog bun are essential components to the perfect lobster role, but that’s just my preference. I don’t know if subsequent trips will taste or feel quite as good as this one, but that’s okay. This one will stay with me all summer.
