The lobster roll’s description has left foodies across Australia drooling.
‘A wild-caught, whole confit lobster tail, served warm in a slightly sweet, totally moreish caramelized brioche bun, finished with the creamy tang of buttermilk fennel slaw and served with a side of golden, parmesan truffle fries,’ the menu reads.
‘A classic combination that’s famous for good reason, it’s sublime.’
The restaurant has defended it’s decision to serve just one item by insisting the dish doesn’t leave any need for them to offer anything else.
The eatery rose to fame with similar pop-ups in 2017 and 2018 with some customers traveling hundreds of kilometres to sample the delicious roll.
‘Lobster and Co will be an unmissable dining destination in custom-made, vintage-style stainless steel food caravans, complete with white picket fencing and seating.’

Melbourne foodies can get their fix between January 12 and February 20 at the Arts Centre Melbourne forecourt.
