41. Red Hook Lobster Truck
Lobster? From a Truck? For $15? And I’ll have to stand in line outside? Okay, you’ve got be kidding me. Wait, you’re serious!
Yup. As serious as I’ve ever been while running across a parking lot dressed in a suit and tie for one of their Connecticut lobster rolls. Don’t ask.
Red Hook is one of my favorite food trucks in the DC area. The folks that run the truck are friendly and
accommodating, and their lobster rolls are a ridiculously good serving of what seems like a full 1/2 lb of lobster.
We’re not talking shredded lobster here…but large chunks of wonderfully seasoned goodness. These folks are serious . The owners drive up to Maine each week to handpick the lobster, so everything is fresh and awesome.
This type of attention to detail is working. They have a loyal following and though sometimes the lines can be a bit crazy, you’ll understand why when you get your roll. The meal with drinks and chips comes to $18, so while this isn’t exactly your everyday lunch fare, it makes a lovely treat.
So the next time you want to get a little adventurous with your lunch, the next time you’re in the mood for some fresh, restaurant-quality lobster drizzled in butter, the next time you feel like taking a bite out of your food while standing on the side of the road…
