Garbo's Lobster truck shows up around 6:00 p.m. at The Draught House Pub & Brewery on Saturdays, which is very convenient for us. My husband and I were going to a friend's party one recent Saturday, but we weren't really sure how much food would be served there. Garbo's to the rescue. We split the grilled lobster sandwich with cheese (my husband's choice). It was the most luxe grilled cheese I have ever eaten. The lobster was perfectly steamed and succulent. My son had the Maine style lobster roll (no cheese) and the bite I had was perfect. Garbo's knows how to do lobster. The sides are thoughtful and pair well with the rich crustacean. The potato salad is creamy and delicious while the Cape Cod classic potato chips are crispy and crunchy. They even offer homemade New England clam chowder (good chowda, Bobby), which I am looking forward to trying next time. Drink offerings are simple--Maine Root Soda and water. The good news about eating Garbo's at The Draught House is, yeah, you can go inside and get a beer if soda or water don't do it for you. The most exciting thing I heard about Garbo's lately (from Austin Food Magazine) is the planned opening of a brick and mortar on Bratton Lane in Wells Branch in May. They will feature "local craft beers and offer a variety of New England favorites such as fried fish sandwiches, New England steamers (clams), fried whole belly clams, and of course, that succulently steamed lobster." Can't wait. (Cathy)
The love of food and how it can bring people together led to the creation of this blog. As a mother of two grown boys, who have left the nest and occasionally return, I noticed a common occurrence-- there is usually someone at home who is hungry.
