Summary: A good option if you fancy an alternative to a burger


Lobster on a Budget

It may be me being blinkered, but suddenly it feels as if lobster is a lot more accessible to the ‘average’ Joe.  There was a time when the classy crustaceans were exclusively found in high end establishments typically with snooty waiters and eye watering prices.  Now though, thanks to the street food revolution, fresh lobster can be enjoyed in abandoned car parks, warehouses, and music festivals.  If standing in the cold isn’t your thing then there is an alternative now in the Lobster Kitchen on Great Russell Street.

Based on the lobster shacks along the North East coast of America in New England, Lobster Kitchen is minimalist in design, encouraging guests to stand around sharing tables while tucking into dishes ordered from the counter ala McDonald’s.  The menu is equally as basic as the fast food heavyweight with all main dishes featuring lobster bar the shrimp rolls.  Each roll comes in a brioche bun and can be enjoyed four ways; Asian, Garlicky, Cocktail or Skinny.  The Asian One (£12) is the pick of the bunch; the sweet chilli and fish sauce offer the perfect antithesis to the shellfish.  Other good shouts include the lobster mac n cheese (£5.50) and lobster legs (£6.50).

Not the best budget lobster I’ve had (that honour belongs to B.O.B’s Lobster), but if you’re in the local area and fancy a quick alternative to a burger, Lobster Kitchen is a worthy shout.
