IT Travels with Paul Martin
The hunt for the perfect lobster roll ate up much of executive editor Paul Martin’s week on Prince Edward Island this summer. He shares his findings:
Every day I was consumed with the mission of finding just the right blend of chunk lobster meat and condiments. (My ideal: the perfect balance between a plain-lobster lobster roll and one made gloppy by too much mayo.) The winner? Hands down, it was the town of Kensington‘s Frosty Treat Dairy Bar, a local ice-cream stand where the rolls feature plentiful lobster held together with a touch of mayo and set off with a bit of celery and a slice of lettuce, served in your choice of hot-dog or hamburger bun. After indulging in one (or two) of the scrumptious sandwiches, I found that the bumbleberry milkshakes were a nice way to top off a meal.
Oh, and for the best fries I discovered on this potato-growing island, try Carr’s Oyster Bar in Stanley Bridge. The crispy skins-on fries were the best I’ve ever had anywhere.
