Living in Boston for the past ten year, I have set out on an adventure to find two hidden treasures amongst the mysterious past of this historical city.
1.) Orignally being from San Diego (Northern Mexico), Mexican food, more specifically TACO SHOPS reigns supreme. And the king of all Mexican food is the CARNE ASADA BURRITO. So prior to diving into the discussion of Lobster, I pose a question to all you Bostonian foodees. Carne Asada: Do they exist in Boston? (Carne Asada Steak, Salsa Fresca, Guacamole, Tortilla--nothing more--... Don't bother responding if your burrito has cheese, lettuce, RICE!!! or BEANS!!!)
2.) In the search for the Ultimate Lobster Roll in Boston, I have searched everywhere for the restaurant that is capable of offering diners the complete lobster roll experience. Browsing the boards, surfing the strings, and tackling the topics of the chow hound discussion section, I have come across many great suggestions:
Belle and Isle
As a lobster fan, all have been quite a treat to enjoy. Some with toasted buns, others warm with butter, ALL enjoyed with a nice New England Ale; but, the issue lies in my prior statement. All of these have been one thing... A TREAT.
You take your first bite, and two seconds later (after your pupils roll back) it is gone along with your $17.95 (not including the beer). So I pose to you one question, well two questions: For those of you who love the decadent treat suggested on prior posts, would you rather have preferred it to be twice the size, triple the size. And furthermore, if you had to choose between a skimpy delicious lobster roll with a little more TLC, or a monster Lobster roll to wrap your teeth around, which would you choose.
And where would I get it (in Boston...as the Raw Bar on the cape takes the cake for New England)?
Hopefully we can get to the bottom of this age old question for Women, Men, and Lobster Lovers alike.... Does size really matter?
