Cheap Eat of the Week: Rock Lobster’s whale tail

Sure, most people go to Rock Lobster for the lobster roll. And it’s not bad. It’s a bit too mayo-heavy for my liking, but I can’t say no to a full lobster supper, with fresh Nova Scotia lobster, butter, creamed spinach, mashed potato and a biscuit. It’s normally $39 (and obviously not a cheap eat), but it’s $25 on Sundays, and that’s a deal anyone can get behind.
While few other things on the menu are under $10 (the lobster cappuccino doesn’t photograph well), you can always count on dessert. And why call it a beaver tail when it’s more convenient to keep it marine-themed? Hence, Rock Lobster’s whale tail.
At $6, it’s a delicious, crispy wad of fried dough (and that’s never a bad thing) covered in crème anglaise, cinnamon sugar and maple sugar. Plus more sugar at the table in case it’s not sweet enough.
