Burger & Lobster has been serving up its iconic lobster roll for a decade, and this spring, the surf and turf specialists are switching things up a gear. In an exciting collaboration with sarnie maestro and TV chef Max Halley of Max's Sandwich Shop, two limited-edition rolls will join the crustacean clan for the first time.
From 6th April, the man behind the best sandwich shop in London will be bringing reimagined rolls with a playful and unapologetically British twist to town. Working alongside Burger & Lobsters' talented chefs, both feature B&L's signature toasted brioche roll and the finest wild-caught Atlantic Lobster, sustainably sourced from the coasts of Nova Scotia Canada – plus Max's distinctive touch of topping creations with crisps.
Lobster Cocktail Roll: British favourite done the Burger & Lobster way. This nostalgic number comes piled high with fresh-picked lobster claw and knuckle meat dressed up to the nines with a retro Marie Rose sauce that's finished with a dash of tabasco and brandy. Garnishes take the form of iceberg lettuce, avocado and cucumber, a squeeze of lemon, a sprinkle of finely chopped tarragon and crushed prawn cocktail crisps for good measure, all loaded into a buttery brioche roll and served alongside fries.
Fish & Chip Lobster Roll: Fish and chips, but not as you know it. Elevating the humble classic, this Max Halley x Burger & Lobster creation features juicy chunks of lobster meat bound with tartare sauce and garnished with lime pickled onions, a vibrant pea and mint purée, shredded baby gem lettuce and finely diced gherkins. All topped with crushed salt and vinegar crisps, packed into a toasted roll and accompanied with golden fries.
Max Halley comments: “Burger & Lobster trailblazed London's love affair with the lobster roll. I'm over the moon to have worked with their Executive Chef, Ken, to marry their classic sandwich with a few of Britain's most iconic dishes. For me, a great sandwich is about contrasts, sweet and sour, crunchy and soft, and so on. These two banging rolls have them in bucket loads! I am, of course, also extremely proud to continue my work making sure as many people as possible know that there isn't a sandwich in the world that isn't improved with a sprinkling of crushed up crisps!”
The limited-edition lobster rolls, both served with fries, will be available exclusively at all nine Burger & Lobster restaurants from Wednesday 6th April to Monday 6th June for lunch and dinner.
