After an enjoyable stay with my relatives in Connecticut, I took a bus up to Boston. I had never visited before and was keen to see the city centre, but my prime objective was to locate a really good lobster roll.
Armed with an article from Gourmet magazine detailing the best lobster rolls in Boston, I selected my preferred location and headed off to satisfy my craving.
I selected B & G Oysters in the South End and had a fantastic meal. The lobster chunks were fresh, large and plentiful. Lightly seasoned with just a touch of mayo, enough to moisten but not overwhelm the delicate meat. The outside of the bun was pan fried in a little butter and then warmed in the grill providing the perfect crunchy texture on the outside, but maintaining fluffiness in the middle.
The fries were, without doubt, the great fries I have ever had in my life. Hands down winner. I asked the chef and they were seasoned with basil, chervil, tarragon, chives and a hint of salt. They were perfectly crisp and crunchy with no soggy limp fries in sight.
