This past Sunday, the New York Post highlighted Xie Xie’s asian lobster roll as one of the best in the city – a compliment that did not escape the notice of Xie Xie staff. After orderingthe lobster roll this past July 5th, the attendant asked if I had read about the roll in the NYPost – I responded no but that I had ordered the roll before and enjoyed it. Just for the sake of comparison, here is the roll I ordered on the 5th:
The other thing is Xie Xie seems to be getting skimpier on their lobster roll portion size. Here’s a shot of the roll from ’09 with the meat given in a container:
Then here is the container given with the roll now:
All in all – still a delicious lobster roll. Be prepared if you order it to go that the meat will come separate from the bun.
N.B. – Angelo Sosa from Xie Xie is currently on this season’s Top Chef.
