Foodie Swellness: Rock Lobster

What: Rock Lobster

Where: 110 Ossington Ave., Toronto

Atmosphere: Loud-ish (mostly) rock music, brightly lit, Canadian-themed art on the walls. (Sorry, didn’t get any pics of the restaurant, was focused on catching up with my friend!). Friendly wait staff.

Go here if: You want a quick, casual bite, and well, if you’re in the mood for lobster, duh.

What you must order: If you’re into caesars, go for it. I was almost tempted to order a Rock Lobster Caesar ($12) just for the lobster tail it comes garnished with. As for food, my favourite dish was the lobster roll ($14). The bun was soft and buttery and there was a nice ratio of lobster filling to bread. I didn’t order the lobster poutine ($13) as I tend to like my poutines the good ol’ traditional way (just curds and gravy), must be the Montrealer in me.

What you can skip: I thought the lobster mac and cheese was tres underwhelming. Didn’t really notice much of any lobster, the noodles were way, way too soft for my taste and it was baked as a thin layer on a cast-iron pan — I like some heft to my mac & cheese!

P.S. For the record, I’m not fond of the term “foodie,” but I couldn’t think of another name for the category. If I do (got a suggestion? Email me!), I’ll be changing it up.

      It was! I maybe even enjoyed it more than the one I had in Newport…
