The Best Lobster Deal in Boston

9/25/2007 11:02:00 AM
It was around seven years ago, when I first arrived in Boston as a broke college student that I stumbled upon what I thought was the best deal on lobster in Boston. It was at Tia's on the waterfront and it was ten bucks for a boiled lobster, fries and cole slaw. Fast forward to now, and i think it's now double that for the same lobster, fries and cole slaw.

Fear not, I've now found an even better deal and it can be found at Pearl Villa in Chinatown. And here it is:
I know what you're thinking. For the love of God, how does anyone outside of Chinatown find out about this deal? Well, they've since added another banner.

So the first thing you're wondering is, "2 lobsters for $9.95 are you serious?" Rest assured, I checked it out, it's the real deal. And no, these are not dead lobsters from 2 weeks ago. These are live lobsters, you can see them in the tank in the front of the restaurant. So how do they do it? They take a loss on the lobsters in order to drive traffic. Their loss is our gain. =)

The asterisk indicates the 'fine print' where you have to order 2 other dinner dishes in order to qualify for the special $9.95 pricing. Not a big deal, considering everyone else in Chinatown is charging double. Grab a few friends, have a nice family style dinner, and order the twin lobsters sauteed with ginger and scallion.

The other special that they have going on is for fresh, in-the-shell scallops. The 'fine print' is that it's limit 1 per person at the special price of 99 cents. After that, it's $1.99 each. If you've never had fresh scallops, they're amazing. Order 1 for each person as an appetizer. Have them steamed with garlic and vermicelli.

Pricing that I'm reporting is accurate as of this past weekend. I'm not responsible if it changes.

For all my friends out there that faithfully read this blog to support me, ya'll want to grab dinner at Pearl Villa this week? I'm drooling as I type this.
