Urban Lobster Shack On Wheels
Posted by New englander on 05/12/2012
The look of this truck, not to mention what they offer, caught our eyes so we decided to buy lunch on 47th Street and Park Avenue. The woman who took our order was extremely nice, patient and helpful. She recommended their new Asian Lobster Roll and Scampi Roll. We decided to try both and she even offered to cut each in half so we could share despite the huge line! The lobster rolls were delicious; fresh lobster with amazing sauces that totally enhanced the meat without overpowering it. Can't wait till the Urban Lobster Shack truck comes back! KUDOS!

Pretty excited to come across the Urban Lobster Shack (Truck) today, but overall, felt it was a waste of time and money. Line was very long to order and it took about 10 minutes to place my order and walk away with my food. I ordered their classic (basic) roll and their old bay fries. -The buttered roll itself was yummy and done right. However, the lobster meat was sparse, shredded, and had absolutely no chunks. A lobster roll really needs some chunks, not just little cut up pieces of lobster odds and ends. For $13, you don't get much food. The flavor itself was not impressive, but not bad either. I am a fan of the mayo-inflected style of Pearl Oyster Bar's lobster roll, and not so much of Luke's more plain&simple lobster roll. The ULS Truck lobster roll, flavor-wise, was somewhere in between those town. Not memorable, not horrible, but not really worth going back for (especially with that line and the attitude of the proprietress). -The fries were a COMPLETE failure -- soggy and flavorless. Not an single drop of Old Bay to be seen anywhere. For $4? What a waste. And who ruins fries? Really. After leaving a tip, I end up paying $18 for a "meh" lobster roll platter. Take me to Pearl anytime. I'd even go with Luke's bargain lobster roll, compared to this disappointment.
