Bored of your regular sandwich? Why not try a decadent lobster roll – fleshy chunks of white lobster meat slathered in a mayonnaise and packed inside a sweet bun – at one of our favourite sandwich bars in London.
Self proclaimed “bourgeois dining on a paper plate”, B.O.B.’s Lobster serves up fine crustaceans in a refreshingly unpretentious way. Receiving serious kudos from the London food scene recently for his meaty lobster rolls, we’re pleased to announce he is receiving one more. Claiming the Best Lobster Roll in London title, B.O.B.’s Lobster Rolls are the most deserving buns out there. The rolls are big, jammed packed with chunks of lobster which come garnished with dill pickles, fresh dill, and is doused in a light coating of mayonnaise, all stuffed inside a toasted buttery bread roll. It’s not often we say this about sandwiches, but we could have easily eaten two.

The name of this restaurant isn’t quite as silly as it sounds. It’s about Steak Lobster And BurgerS, or in other words, Slabs. We went there for the Lobster, which was meaty enough to take on any slab of red meat. The Lobster Burger is impossibly rich and indulgent, the bun is toasted, soft and sweet, and the lobster tail is accompanied by soft shell crab for a little added bite. Simple, big, and fishy. Eat it with a side of their skinny fries and homemade slaw and you’ll be happily rolling out of there.

Still in its infant years, year-old pop up from seafood aficionado, Jimmy (James Ballantyne), Fingers and Thumbs serves up exceptionally tasty seafood. Launched as part of his Seafood Shack pop-up events, that have been popping up every month in North East London for the past year. Formerly the Lobster and Crab burger, which was a tower of soft buns filled with lobster tail and crab meat, topped with a thyme and garlic slow-cooked tomato slice and homemade potato crisps, ginger mayonnaise and lettuce. His upcoming pop-up at the end of this month will be serving up sliders of a similar nature, but without the crab. Expect a whole lot more lobster instead.
(£10 for individual burger, £30 for 5-courses)
