Food Truck Edition: Lucille's Oyster Dive (trailer)
So, I have been waiting weeks to find this trailer. It is not a truck yet because apparently the truck is being readied. These guys have been hard to track and although they claim to be Facebook and twitterers, updates are not as available as other trucks. We knew though, that they had to be where everyone else was this Saturday afternoon; starting the Just for Laughs gig this weekend and on for the next two weeks. I knew that I would have the lobster roll and maybe a chowder if they had some. We biked down and found her among maybe twenty food trucks (a pierogie truck among them!) and saw they had the lobster rolls and ribs only. So, two lobster rolls please. At $10 each, they were worth it; I mean, it's good, fresh lobster! I was expecting a price between $13 and $15 so I was pleasantly surprised.
The ratio of mayo to scallion to celery bits was perfect. The bun was your typical hotdog bun that had been buttered and grilled; quite typical of a lobster roll you may find in Maine. It was served in a small handy box and they had napkins and wet wipes available. It was easy enough to eat and as expected in a great lobster roll, heaping with meaty goodness, chunks were falling on my shorts. Thankfully on my shorts, since I just picked up those bits and ate 'em anyway! So, overall, the experience at Lucille's was a great one. Next time hopefully they will get some chowder and oysters on the menu...maybe when the truck is ready?!
Would we go back? Yes. Yes. And yes.
