Warm, succulent and comforting, we can only be talking about the iconic lobster roll, right? This sassy little sandwich is great for snacking on with friends, a snazzy lunch, or to enjoy to yourself on an indulgent night in. Once a New England staple – and now an international favourite – there's all sorts of places serving up lobster rolls here in the UAE, so if you're looking for some of the best, here's five to try out first.
1. Burger & Lobster
When a restaurant has a couple of killer staples, you know they're going to be good. And these guys are known for their awesome lobster rolls. Here you'll find fresh lobster meat tossed in a zingy Japanese mayo dressing and topped with fresh chives, served up with a side of fries and crisp salad, you get the best balance of doughy, meaty, crunchy goodness.

2. Rock & Rolls
At Rock & Rolls, they take their rolls seriously. And you can taste this dedication in every bite. These guys are even giving a new style a shot too – instead of fried lobster chunks in your classic roll, find it served up grilled, drizzled in a light sauce and decorated with pickles. And the good news doesn't stop there, these grilled delights are much healthier than its fried cousin.

3. Urban Seafood
Sometimes, you get a roll that looks just as good as it tastes. And you get just that over at Urban Seafood, with each dish more Instagram worthy than the last. Here a light and fluffy freshly baked roll is sliced at the top and stuffed with pure Maine lobster meat. Seasoned with lemon like the classic, but sporting a Jersey sauce, it's a fresh take on everyone's favourite.

4. Joe's Crab Shack
When a lobster roll at lunchtime calls, Joe's Crab Shack has you covered. A classic slit top roll is first stuffed with a luscious lettuce garnish, before the staple takes centre stage. Incredible juicy and tiny lobster chunks are lightly tossed in a mayo dressing and decorated with celery. With fries and house coleslaw on the side, it's always a treat-worthy option to order.
