I’m not much of a seafood eater. I like it enough but it’s not my first choice when I eat out. That’s ironic since seafood is affordable and bountiful in the Philippines. My favorite seafood is lobster but I hardly see it in the menus in Manila because it’s very expensive.
I was in Tysons Corner, an upscale mall in McLean, Virginia, with my cousin La. I was there to shop while she worked on her laptop. We met up for lunch at Coastal Flats, a restaurant which part of the Great American Restaurants chain which has several restaurants all over Virginia.
The last time I ate a lobster roll was in Maine many, many years ago. When I saw it on the menu I immediately knew I had to order it. The menu described it as: lobster salad from the meat of a 1 1/4 pound lobster on a grilled roll with fries & roasted corn on the cob… while it lasts
Lobster Roll $19.95
As you can see from the picture 1 1/4 pounds of lobster is a lot of lobster to stuff in a roll. $19.95 for all that sweet, succulent lobster in a light mayonnaise dressing was a great, great deal! This is my kind of seafood. The grilled corn was also yummy.
