What is a lobster roll?
Lobster rolls are one of Prince Edward Island’s tastiest treats.
Each chef has his/her own special way of making a lobster roll, but generally speaking, it includes bite-sized chunks of cooked lobster meat, mixed with mayonnaise, celery and lemon juice, and seasoned with salt and pepper. The mixture is then scooped into a freshly-baked bun, and served cold (though some people do toast the bun before filling it).
Last summer, the CBC published an article entitled, “Where to find PEI’s best lobster roll.”
I also reached out to friends, to ask about their favourite places to feast on lobster rolls, and this is what they recommended:
- The Yellow House (Rustico)
- Terry’s Berries Food Truck (Charlottetown)
- Lobster on the Wharf (Charlottetown waterfront)
- Charlottetown Farmers’ Market – Chef Ross Munro’s Stand
- The Lobster Barn Pub & Eatery (Victoria-by-the-Sea)
- Brakish (Charlottetown waterfront)
- Dave’s Lobster (Charlottetown and Cavendish)
- Water Prince Corner Shop (Charlottetown)
I hope you’ll try a lobster roll (or two!) while you’re visiting our beautiful PEI!
