The tub in the freezer
The taste: The beauty of this dish is that, if you really wanted to, you could make it at home. It's essentially just big, juicy chunks of lobster meat mixed in with plain ice cream (maybe it was vanilla?) and then frozen.
Eating at Lobster ME however, we were totally grossed out on the first bite owing to the fact that it's pretty obvious you're just chewing through partially frozen seafood chunks in ice cream. The lobster flavor does come through like crazy once you've thawed each piece in your mouth though, and the next few bites weren't so bad. Then we started to enjoy it and finished every last little bit. That said, we won't be back for more. There's a gazillion other novelty ice cream flavors out there yet to try.
Price: $9 for this little cup. Yes, $9. We were afraid to ask how much for a cone.
Where to find it: Lobster ME is located in the Miracle Mile shopping mall, about midway between the Planet Hollywood casino and the Planet Hollywood Westgate Towers. You kinda can't miss it, since the sign for lobster ice cream causes half the passers-by to do a double-take. Do note they also offer "Lobsicles," which are tempura lobster tails on a stick (not frozen).
