East Coast to Third Coast!

Brand New in Houston is Dallas transplant East Hampton Sandwich Co. with their highly anticipated Houston locations serving killer sandwiches and newsworthy lobster rolls!!

East Hampton came to Houston, and came with a bang! In the matter of a few summer months, they opened 2 locations inside the 6-10 loop, first in River Oaks District and next in Montrose. Huge balloon displays and endless lines led to the restaurant that literally feels like a beach vacation when you walk inside. Dishes for every type of diner, indulgent sandwiches, clean eating friendly salads and wraps, and treat-yo-self lobster rolls and froze’s.. you can’t go wrong!

If you wonder why we keep referencing the Lobster Roll, wonder no more, IMG_2395its because its just THAT good. Lots of fresh lobster, minus the filling, in an incredibly soft bun with some extra butter on the side. What more can you really ask for?! Incredibly cool and refreshing for a hot Houston day. And once you’ve had the lobster roll one too many times (if thats even possible) we suggest the Fried Chicken + Jack – crispy, bacon-ey, avocado-ey, little bit spicy, basically perfect-ey. IMG_2398

On the side, we were loving the Chowda’s because nothing more East Coast than Lobstah with some Chowda, amiright?! The @NewFoodHouston team literally liked all of them, but we will note that the Clam Chowder clams were perfectly tender, the Roasted Corn + Shrimp has a perfect kick and basically Gouda is amazing in everything!

And last, but certainly not least. Don’t even think about leaving without a Whoopie Pie. Seriously O-M-G soft cookies with a perfect filling. If your appetite even made it to the end of this blog, just go ahead and grab your keys and head to the nearest location because your froze is mixed and waiting, my friends. Enjoy, luv!!


We also partnered with East Hampton for a giveaway to a lucky follower! If you read this before July 27, 2018, click here to enter for your chance to win $50 for lots o’ lobstah!
