Report: Hungry Cat

Kain Natayo | Jul 31, 2006 03:21 PM

Ok, so I've heard raves about Hungry Cat. So I took a friend there for lunch and we both had the Lobster Roll with Longly Fries (which seems to be everyone's favorite). Although my friend loved it, I was disappointed. The brioche roll had a nice flavor and crunch, but, boy, was it greasy! The lobster salad inside was good, but thought that the ingredients weren't balanced enough to let the subtle sweetness of lobster show through. The fries were limpy. Ugh. We also ordered the lavendar lemonade, which was good lemonade, but I asked my friend if he tasted any lavendar, and, he didn't. Neither did I. I guess if I'm paying $22 for a lobster roll, I'd like for it to sing. Hungry Cat's just sorta mumbled.
