Helloooo! We are back with a short update on how we spent Valentine’s Day this year! Since it coincided with 人日 and Chanelle also has music classes on Sundays, misterchewy and I decided to celebrate the occasion a day earlier.
A week before, I texted the hubs while at work that I wanted to try the lobster roll at Luke’s Oyster Bar & Chop House for our Valentine’s Day celebration, to which he replied, “Ok! Your call!” I bet he was secretly relieved that he was off the hook for being spared the responsibility and possibly, pressure, of having to search for a suitable lunch or dinner venue. Hehe. We opted for lunch because the lobster roll is only available during lunch and not dinner!
Our complimentary starter of mini corn bread served with homemade butter that was sprinkled with paprika was warm and crumbly.
We indulged in Half Dozen Oysters ($48) from Wellfleet, Marion Port and Katama Bay, which were featured on the ‘Special’ signboard. Our least favorite were the Wellfleet oysters as they were considerably less meaty and the taste was not as robust. I loved the Katama Bay oysters the most for its briny flavor which was a little too strong for misterchewy’s liking and he preferred the Marion Port oysters. We didn’t try the champagne vinegar that came with the oysters as we felt that just a squeeze of lemon juice was good enough!
We also ordered another side dish to share. The Lobster Mac & Cheese ($26) was interestingly topped with some crushed Ritz pretzels.
The macaroni was fairly al dente and the sauce was of a cheesy, creamy consistency. We found a few chunks of lobster meat and felt that this dish was pretty mediocre. Totally no wow factor there.
The husband had his Lamb Chops ($82) cooked medium. Although a little on the salty side, the well-marinated lamb chops were remarkably juicy and tender, with a wonderful smokey flavor.
I wasn’t exactly impressed by the size of my Lobster Roll ($48) for the price that we paid. But hey, at least it was quite well-endowed. Lol. To reiterate, the lobster roll is only featured on their lunch menu. I didn’t like that the bun was soft and would certainly have preferred it to be a little more toasted and crusty. The steamed lobster chunks with homemade aioli were firm and tasted buttery sweet.
Our total bill came up to about $240 after taxes.
Hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine’s Day! Stay connected with us on Facebook www.facebook.com/missuschewy and on Instagram @missuschewy, @misterchewy and @little_miss_chewy
