Lobster ME Las Vegas Fast Casual Offers Seafood & Lobster Ice Cream

This is a guest post written by Chris Rauschnot, @24K on Twitter, of @24KMedia with some help by me.

Trying to figure out where to eat in Las Vegas, while on vacation, or even for locals, is a daunting task. There are so many amazing restaurants and places to dine, sometimes you want something a little more approachable, but still feel like you are enjoying the good life. That is where Lobster ME, inside of the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood Las Vegas is a good choice.

Lobster ME is located near the laser show of the Miracle Mile Shops, but it may take you a few minutes to find it, as it is about a quarter mile from any of the entrances. It is worth the walk and the reward is a fast and tasty experience.

I first sampled the Lobster Bisque with extra lobster bits sprinkled on top. This bisque has changed me from a chowder person, to enjoying bisque. A favorite part of the bisque is that it is served inside of a soft sourdough bread bowl.

Next up was the Lobster Mac ‘N Cheese. I have had Lobster Mac ‘N Cheese many times before, but this was the best. Not too gooey and not too dry, it was just right. If you order this, it is best shared, as you get a large portion.

Then I tried the Lobster Salad, with small yellow and red tomatoes and a tangy Asian vinaigrette dressing. The dressing comes on the side, so you can enjoy a little or a lot. This salad had a good taste and the cold lobster worked well with the ingredients. If you want to try the quality of lobster at this restaurant, try the salad first.

After the salad, I tried what Lobster ME is all about, the “World’s Best Lobster Roll.” I ordered the large combo to share and so I could also sample the fries. The fries are larger than what you would find at most fast food restaurants. The fries I tried were hot, fresh and very good. The Lobster Roll is traditionally New England style, has some spices and huge pieces of lobster. Complete with whole lobster claw meat. While enjoying the roll, it was hard keeping all of the lobster on the bun. The bun is special too. It is a lightly toasted and soft brioche roll.

There was one more lobster item, I had seen when scanning the menu, but did not know I should order. I was already full, but in order to give my readers a full review, I needed to go for one more. Lobster ME is all about the play on words and the Lobsicle was the best I could find. A Lobsicle is lightly fried and flaky lobster meat on a stick. This is not a corndog and the breading is not anywhere near as thick. The tempura breading on the Lobsicle tastes good as well.

Lobster ME can even satisfy people with a sweet tooth. They do this by offering a special ice cream, a first even for me. Lobster ice cream is $8.50 for a cup or a cone. You may try a sample first, but they were out when I visited. Most of the people that get drawn into this restaurant are very curious as to how they make lobster ice cream. I heard from the waitress that some people come back for seconds.

Instead of the lobster ice cream, I opted for the orange sherbet. Thankfully it was a smaller portion and rounded out the meal nicely.

When my Lobster Roll arrived, I Tweeted a photo of it http://flic.kr/p/aB528p and included their Twitter name. They were nice enough to respond back during my visit.

Thanks to the owners and helpful and friendly staff at Lobster ME for hosting the taste test and I can not wait to go back to try the lobster ice cream. It definitely sounds like something that should not be missed.
