The #1 reason I could never give up seafood entirely? Lobsta.
Growing up, we had lobster about once a year, in the summertime. My Dad would boil the crustaceans while my siblings and I shucked ears of corn, waiting eagerly for the lobster to be done. We'd all crack into our lobsters like savages, and dunk each morsel into a bowl of melted, artery-clogging butter. We'd then wash our meals down with cans of Fresca. It was a delightful experience each time.
So, when the kind folks at Pauli's in the North End asked if I'd like to stop in and try one of their Lobsta Rolls ($14.99) - using lobster from Globe Fish Company - I couldn't resist.
Pauli's Lobsta Roll is piled high (and I mean high) with chunks of fresh, meaty lobster that's very lightly dressed in mayonnaise. The grilled, buttery hot dog bun stands up to the mass amounts of lobster incredibly well, too. As you can see above, the Lobsta Roll also comes with a bag of wonderfully salty Utz Potato Chips.
The best part about Pauli's lobster, though? It tasted like it was plucked from the ocean hours before it ended up on my plate. And trust me - I am picky when it comes to my seafood.
The scene at Pauli's at lunchtime is busy, yet the staff behind the counter is efficient and friendly. Chalkboard menus adorn the walls of the small eatery, while a more permanent menu hangs above the counter. In other words, you have lots of choices when it comes to food here.
So, would you like to try Pauli's Lobsta Roll (or their Lobsta Sub, $28.99) for yourself? (Or really, anything off of Pauli's menu?). The nice folks at Pauli's have offered to give one lucky EE reader a $20 gift card to check them out for themselves!
