Rock Lobster hasn't been a proper restaurant for long. This Ossington eatery got its start at the Toronto Underground Market, a monthly event which allows non-pros with a flair for food to show off their chops to masses of hungered folks. When their lobster rolls drew rave reviews and hour-plus line-ups, Matt, the man behind the crustaceans, decided there was no turning back.
Although they serve lobster done every which way (poutine, bisque, mac 'n' cheese, topping steak) the rolls remain a personal favourite. Tucking hard shell Atlantic lobster into a grilled and buttered hot dog bun, the goods are served warm with a handful of chips and a dill pickle on the side. What's not to love?
