Hey lovelies! I’m so excited to write a post about this place because I’ve been seeing the hype on instagram for a couple weeks now, and my love for lobster rolls is unbounded, so I had to come try this!
Fresh off the Boat is located at Queen / Spadina; it’s a tiny little shop, so tiny it’s easy to miss, and there’s a vintage, nautical decor happening here. The menu is short and simple, laid out on one of the walls, and I chose the Lobster Roll (14.95 + tax). They have a whole shelf full of Sriracha bottles and a little utensil station with Lemon water if you fancy.
On the other wall there are photos and artwork of fishermen and fish, and Rope hanging from the ceiling, going with the Nautical theme.
Anyway, on to the FOOD! My lobster roll was indeed amazing, with a buttery bun and the lobster meat was well marinated and buttery. I added Sriracha and lemon juice to top and omg, I can’t. Also, the fries were really good, crispy on the outside and tender mushy on the inside. I honestly have nothing bad to say about this place other than the price. For around 16$ that I paid, the roll was tiny, probably the size of my palm and I finished it in 2 minutes. So you can imagine.
My friend got the Softshell Crab sandwich, and that was BOMB, from what I tried of it, but I can’t say too much because I didn’t eat the whole thing! 🙂
Overall, I think Fresh Off the Boat is definitely worth the hype and worth trying, but I wouldn’t choose to go back again because of the price.
Hope you enjoyed this post and I’ll see you at the next one 🙂
