Battle of the Lobster Roll – Boston Style

Read this blog post about two women visiting Boston’s North End for a lobster roll, or two. Stopping in at Neptune Oyster, they were expecting a superior lobster roll and that is what they got, trying both the “cold with mayo” and the “warm with butter,” read the full post at, 2girlswhotravel.

  1. Battle of the Lobster Roll
    Neptune Oyster is the best, the place to avoid is Luke’s Lobster.
    I recently visited their store in Downtown crossing.
    The lobster was cold and TASTELESS and they top it off with a secret spice.
    They are located on the Freedom Trail and will give visitors a bad taste for Boston.
    But the company is from New York, so it may be their plan to damage their taste buds.
    Avoid it at all costs. (which was over $18.00)
