Still in Connecticut, dodging ticks. Much to write about this experience at a later date.
Here's what I discovered today: the lobster roll. Foodgasm on a hotdog bun.
Found it because I ditched lunch at the institute and went looking for local flavor. My plan: Drive along the marina until I see someplace with a line out front.
Fred's Shanty Food Stand. Don't you love the place already?
Long line. Picnic tables. Walk-up window. Special today: Hot Lobster Roll. Worth every nickel of 12 bucks.
Served in a paper boat, it is a toasted white hotdog bun split open and stuffed with about a half pound of steamed pink lobster chunks. So fresh, so moist, so yummalicious. With a paper cup of melted butter on the side.
Ten thousand fat grams for a big hot bite of New England summer.
