37 James Street
Antigonish, Nova Scotia
After a ferry ride across the Northumberland Strait from PEI to Nova Scotia, we continued to head east towards Cape Breton Island. As we approached the city of Antigonish, we saw a sign for the McLobster.
I have a rule when travelling: Never eat at a chain which I can find back home. This was the FIRST time that I have ever broken my rule, as my curiosity just got the better of me.
A standard issue hot-dog bun, stuffed mostly with lettuce, and dressed with Atlantic lobster, celery, and mayo. I did fully expect something akin to artificial ‘krab’, but all the posted signs stated ‘Atlantic Lobster’.
No different from my prior experiences – the lobster failed to make any flavour impact, as the mayo dominated. After we each took a bite, we just resorted to picking at the lobster and binned the rest.
Lesson learned – never break your own rules.
