Sepal (Middle Eastern) Watertown, Dairy Joy! (Lobster roll) Weston

Bob Dobalina | Jun 6, 2005 03:07 PM

The warm weather on Saturday I guess riled up my appetite...

Went off to Sepal in Watertown for their famous green falafels (famous because they were one of two N.E. restaurants featured on the PBS one-timer, "Sandwiches You Will Like.") - It was very yummy as always - four or five of the fried patties with onions and tomatoes and medium hot sauce in a pita - it's called Shepards and Falafel - the regular falafel sandwich doesn't have the fresh veggies in it - not as good in my opinion. $6 for a regular - can only imagine what the jumbo is like. That and a nice Fatoush salad $6 to start was a nice lunch - filling without being weighty. Good lemonade too - not too sweet - tasted homemade? This is really hidden away near the Arsenal Mall - worth finding IMHO.

Then in the evening, started to get my seasonal craving for lobster rolls - after recalling the suggestions on Chowhound and finding myself in Weston, I meandered over to the Dairy Joy - lobster roll was $14.50 or $17 with fries and small drink. It's a bit pricy but I was satisfied - toasted split-top hot dog roll with lettuce underneath (it was the only option offered) and then filled to overflowing with lump lobster meat. The meat seemed very fresh, i.e., not overly firm which I think indicates it being previously frozen. Just a little mayo to mind the pieces - I doctored it with salt and pepper - You know, for it being Weston, I expected Weston prices - so I thought it was a reasonable enough deal. It was much better than the lobster sandwich I got at Alive and Kicking in Cambridge although about double the price.

My favorite lobster roll deal is still the Kimball Farm in Jaffrey, NH - enormous amount of lobster (double what I got yesterday) with generous waffle fries and wedge of watermelon for $10 last season - but that's a bit far out...
