For Around 13 Bucks, I’m Loving The Lobster Roll Pick Two At Panera

Everybody freakin’ loves Panera.  What’s not to love, babes?  The food is served fast and it’s always solid.  What’s even better, in these fry-heavy, fast-food menu days, of fat-asses, split pants, diabetes, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure, Panera offers a lot of healthier, quick serve options.

Yesterday, I didn’t necessarily want to eat a salad with lemon squeezed on it, but I didn’t want a immediate-crap inducing fast food burger either, so I stopped into my local Panera for one of their non-salad menu items.

I ended up skeptically ordering the Lobster Roll sandwich.  (I did the Pcik Two with the chowder.) I was skeptical because what the hell kind of Lobster Roll was I gonna get at Panera? But I wanted something different than usual so order it, I did.  I was pleasantly surprised.  Usually the picture of the featured item at a place like Panera exaggerates on the size of the item, but in this case the picture almost doesn’t do the Lobster Roll justice.  I counted four or five huge chunks of lobster in the one I ordered.

At only $13, for the size and the amount of lobster you get on the sandwich, I was very impressed.  They mix the lobster chunks in a mayo based sauce that complements the texture of the meat.  I actually had to eat two of the large chunks of lobster with my fork before diving into the sandwich as a whole.

I also have nothing but good things to say about the summer corn chowder that I paired with the sandwich.  That chowder, coupled with the always stellar bread baguette that come as a side, completed a quite lovely lunch that was relatively cheap and definitely fast.

The lobster roll is a temporary seasonal item so jump on it while supplies last people.

(editor’s note:  Babes gets too damn excited about food and forgot to take his own pics of the lobster roll.  This one is from Trip Advisor.  The full sandwich is $15)
