Having tried the lobster roll at Johnny Lobster recently, I was keen to try out other versions of this Boston classic in Sydney. This time, we went to Burger Liquor Lobster in Paddington. Above the London Hotel, Burger Liquor Lobster has a funky interior with colourful graffiti adorning its wall.
The menu is simple and comes under the 3 headings of - no surprise - burgers, liquor and lobster.
We tried the Soft shell crab burger with chilli Singapore sauce and Asian slaw. My mouth was watering when this landed on our table with the crispy legs sticking out, waiting to be devoured. The soft shell crab was delicious - crunchy and soft at the same time, and the Singapore sauce added a spicy hit to the dish.
The Salt and pepper lobster roll with lemon aioli, chives, red onion and iceberg lettuce was really why I came to BLL for. It's not the normal steamed lobster that I adore, but was a very tasty alternative. Being deep fried, the meat was still succulent and the lemon aioli went superbly with the lobster. In terms of lobster content, I felt this was slightly more generous than Johnny Lobster.
Operating as a pop-up, get here for your lobster fix before it's too late!
