If you happen to be strolling down Sunset Boulevard on your way to Tower of Terror or Aerosmith’s Rockin ‘n’ Roller Coaster, you may want to stop by Rosie’s All-American Cafe to try the new plant-based “lobster” roll. Actually…maybe eat this AFTER you’ve gone on those thrill rides.
The lobster roll is an all-veggie-based sandwich. It comes with hearts of palms, celery, apples, and a creamy vegan dressing that’s served on a toasted hoagie roll. If you have read any of my quick service posts, you will know that I have been suffering from faux meat fatigue at the Disney quick services as of late. I appreciate that this is a unique use of veggies. Not only is it unique, but it’s also delicious. The lobster roll has a nice tangy flavor as well as a great crunch from the apples and celery. This sandwich is a bit messy and I would recommend having plenty of napkins on hand before you bite into it.
As much as I enjoyed the “lobster” roll, I think the star of this Hollywood item was the chips. These housemade chips were super thick and crispy with a slightly burned flavor, which I love. If the chips were available as a side item only, I think I would stop by just for them when I didn’t feel like a meal.
