    I love lobster rolls but I’ve had my share of bad ones here in San Diego where they stuff it full of other stuff besides lobster and at a premium price. But theirs looks good with very little interference and an good looking bun.

      I’ve had some bad lobster here, too. This one was great though – the kind of sandwich you want to have again and again! I still need to go try the whole belly clams, those are my true weakness.

    fried whole belly clams!!!! what!!! I thought the only place that offered that was Studio Diner ? I want to say that I’ve heard of Bite of Boston – but not sure – I know i’ve never been so I’ll have to check out now. I’m a huge lover of clams so I’m hoping BOB does it right here (not that I know exactly what ‘doing right’ means when it comes to frying clams…)

    Do you think they use fresh lobster for their rolls? Or more the pre packaged lobster? And yes – the King’s Hawaiian hot dog buns look crazy good – i’ve seen them in the markets!!

      There used to be another place that did the whole bellies, but the restaurant has changed names so I don’t think they do anymore. The ones at Studio Diner are so pricey, it’s hard to justify getting them! I’m pretty sure the lobster at BOB is fresh. It tastes pretty darn fresh. They also fly in their clams twice a week! Mmmmm. πŸ™‚

  3. I haven’t had an authentic Boston style lobster roll yet…so now I’m looking forward to trying this place out. When you wrote, fried clams, I got excited too. Want those as well!

    • mary says:

      Woo, hope you check this place out! I hope to try the clams soon, too. I love clams – and I don’t mean those lame places that use clam strips and try to pass them off as clams!

      • Yeah, I was disappointed with the fried clams at the SD Fair – they turned out to be strips and small ones at that. Whole clams, now that’s another story. I love your posts. You have such a variety – cheap places to high end, and everything in between.
