Smack Lobster 4

Smack Lobster
There’s something about the warmer weather that has me craving seafood. Fortunately, Smack Lobster is conveniently located just off Oxford Street to help satisfy my mid-shopping cravings.

Smack Lobster is the little sister of Burger and Lobster. Its prices are lower, its flavours are more adventurous and the service more laid back. Take yourself to the counter and place your order, take your buzzer, and then return to the kitchen to pick it up when it’s ready (ours took less than five minutes at 1pm on a Saturday).

We shared two rolls, a lobster chowder, courgette fries and two drinks, which cost just over £30 – not the cheapest lunch, but it is lobster, after all.

I’m probably more of a traditionalist when it comes to a lobster roll – give me a bit of mayo (preferably Japanese) and I’m good to go. So while I would welcome the addition of a classic lobster roll to the menu, I did enjoy the Seven Samurai (with Japanese mayo, cabbage, cucumber, pickled ginger, spring onions and togarashi spice). My dining partner wasn’t completely enamored with the California (with lettuce, tomato, cucumber, avocado mayo with lime and chives) but he did think the chowder was pretty good.

The dining room is casual, with stools at shared benches. It was also very quiet, and easy for conversation. This would be a good early date spot (provided neither of you had shellfish allergies – because there’s not really anything else on the menu!) or a nice spot to pop in alone or with a friend mid-shop.

The good: The brioche buns are to die for!

The bad: There’s not a lot of lobster in the rolls, so if you’re after a filling meal, you’ll need a side as well.

The insider tip: If you take-away and sit in a park, you’ll save yourself around 20%.
