Hawaii Mom Blog: The Lobster Roll from Da Buttah Lobstah in Jolene's Market

The Lobster Roll from Da Buttah Lobstah in Jolene's Market

I finally tried it! Da Buttah Lobstah's Lobster Roll w/Corn Chowder as been popping up on my friends' social media feeds every since it debuted in August, and I finally got down to Chinatown to try it for myself! 

Did it live up to the hype?


The Lobster Roll comes with a bowl of corn chowder, or you can add fries for $1.50 more. Since I'm trying to cut down on my consumption of fries, I opted for the corn chowder.

In less than 5 minutes, the Lobster Roll and corn chowder arrived at my table.  There was so much lobster and other goodies on top of the buttered roll that I decided to eat it with a pair of chopsticks (I didn't see any forks on the counter). 

The menu says that it's made with "killah asian cajun sauce", so I thought it would be a little spicy, but I did not detect any spiciness at all.  I liked how the amount of mayo used was at a minimum.  The lobster roll exceeded my expectations by far and I thought it was definitely priced right at $15.

There is seating available, and it's currently set up community style (in earlier articles I've seen it set up as 4-tops).  When I first arrived at 12:45 pm on a weekday, it was packed.  By the time we left an hour later, it looked like the picture above.

It's definitely worth a try if you're a fan of lobster!

  1. That looks delicious! I don't think I could find a lobster roll here in New Jersey for $15.
