My earliest memory of eating lobster was sitting next to my very proper Australian-born grandmother at a seafood restaurant in Northern Virginia. I was about 8 or 9? She had ordered lobster tail as her meal - I was on the popcorn shrimp and hushpuppy childrens program and was fascinated with this yummy stuff she was dipping in butter. And even now, 30 years later, I still remember how golden delicious that first bite of lobster tasted. WOW. It made an everlasting impression.
Fast forward to this summer and a visit to Sam's Chowder House in Half Moon Bay, CA. Our family had rented a beach house in Moss Beach for a few days with dear friends of ours. They strongly suggested that we all have lunch at Sam's and we happily obliged. Sam's is known first and foremost for their Clam Chowder (which is divine and easily the best tasting soup to ever cross my lips). Following closely behind is their Lobster Sandwich, which was supposed to be completely amazing.
When in Rome...so I ordered the Lobster Sandwich.
I took a picture of it as it was placed in front of me. Good thing too because it didn't last long. I DEVOURED it and then looked around for MORE. But because I am a lady I refrained from ordering another meal. I really wanted to...but my very proper grandmother would not have approved :).
Best lobster meal EVER.
