Lobster Roll Eating Contest Tue, 05/10/11 6:10 PM (permalink)
In beautiful downtown Tampa a video was made of a local sports reporter eating 2 gigantic lobster rolls in 10+ minutes.  You have to watch closely to make sure
there is no slight of hand.  The lobster are monsters served at the LOBSTER MONSTAH
up on Dale Mabry in case anyone wants to know.

    This is what I got when I tried:
     

    The video you have requested is not available.

    If you have recently uploaded this video, you may need to wait a few minutes for the video to process.
    Sorry about that.

      But, you can always watch Kobayashi eat 40-something lobster rolls in ten minutes. Although why anyone would want to eat any lobster roll that way -- even those disgusting lobster salad things -- I'll never know.

            Thanks. But come on. A lobster roll with cold lobster and with lettuce on it? A lobster roll needs to be made with hot, buttered lobster and nothing else on the hot buttered bun.

              Thanks Joe, but that wasn't the one I was looking for.  The one I saw was a guy who is a sports announcer here in the Tampa-St Pete area.  I can't get into it just like Michael can't.  I thought maybe he was old and senile but if he is so am I.
               
              Thanks for the help though--you're a fine fellow.

                    Me, too. I want one desperately. Actually, I want two or three, but at $15 a pop, one will have to do.

                        I'm sure you will be. But maybe you ought to try a lobster roll in each of a few places to see which onje you like best. Of course, considering that the only decent lobster rolls are in Connecticut and you are in California, I guess you'll just have to dream about them.

                                  Knock it off, Pal. You're not making it easy. It's bad enough I'm telling Mar about the damned things, but you have  to go and talk that trash to me?

                                    Michael---didn't a restaurant in California win the best
                                    lobster roll section of America's best Sandwichs a few years ago.  We were agast (an old word only Michael and I will know). If I am not dreaming Mar52 might just be able to find it,  after all California is a little place with few restaurants--no big deal.
                                     
                                    The video I was looking for had great looking lobster rolls,
                                    if lobster rolls can look great.

                                      MH, if there's no picnic benches we could sit on the seawall in Lordship. The Lobster Roll is the only sandwich that if a chunk falls off and lands on the ground, you can walk over, wash it off in the ocean, dip it back into the melted butter and your good to go.................................

                                        Ancient one, if a California restaurant was deemed to have the best lobster rolls then the judges were demented or from California, which I guess might be the same thing.

                                          That particular seawall was one of my grandson's favorite things in Connecticut when we took him up there for the first time. He scrambled all over the rocks trying to get to the gulls while at the same time laughing as the waves splashed and soaked him thoroughly.
                                           
                                          As to raw clams, let me at 'em. When it comes to oysters, I cannot get raw oysters down. I don't know why. I love them fried, baked, roasted -- any way as long as they're cooked.

                                            At least I can describe a Phillipe's French Dip Sandwich.

                                              I've heard that's some sort of wet meat on a wet roll.

                                                Depends (perfect word) on how many times you dip.
                                                 
                                                And... the meat is not wet, just the roll.

                                                  Oh, and some hot mustard. I forgot the hot mustard. Probably to kill the taste.

                                                      Actually, I'd like to try one of those things. But I've heard that Los Angeles is somewhere in California and that's a long way from here. Still, I hear Maria Shriver is available now.

                                                        She does look like she needs to eat.

                                                          Of course she is a little old for me, and I've heard she has some Democrats in her family.
