Located at 520 E. Grayson rests a restaurant that specializes in oysters, lobster rolls and unique cocktails. Although Shuck Shack opened in 2015, Jacqueline and I finally made it by to indulge in some delicious seafood last week. After one bite we looked at each other and asked, “what took us so long!?”
First up, the lobster roll. Just look at this beautiful creation of lobster, kewpie mayo, celery and scallions all nestled inside a king Hawaiian roll! I went with the half lobster roll priced at a staggering $22 (don’t worry – it’s 100% worth the price) but you can opt for the full lobster roll which features a full tail, two knuckles and two claws for $40.
After biting into my lobster roll I knew I had ordered the “more delicious” entree, but then I tasted the spicy bahn mi fish tacos Jacqueline order. Mind blown. The spicy fish tacos come with market fish, cucumbers, carrots, Thai basil, jalapeños, kewpie mayo, and a fish sauce vinaigrette topped with Sriracha. The unique flavors that are usually limited to Vietnamese cuisine tasted amazing in a seafood taco.
While at Shuck Shack we also discovered a summer essential – the ‘Limonada’ cocktail. First you take Deep Eddy lemonade, mix in some Topo Chico and top it off with a lime paleta. Oh yeah, this will keep you cool during those hot summer days…and nights.
