Up in Gloucester, they know from lobster. Joey at Good Morning Gloucester lands a knockout blow on some foodie site that thinks "the perfect lobster roll" includes anise, lemongrass, ginger and arbol chiles:
Listen here anyone who would describe themselves as a “Foodie”.

Spare us your French baguettes, spare us your frickin lemon zest bullshit, spare us your ginger and your anise and your arbol chlis.

HELP!!! LOBSTERS ARE SCARING US!!!! (Allston )
My husband and I have a few lobsters but we're both VERY scared of them. They're ugly and scary looking. They're in that bag, I tried to see if they'd fit in the pot - and was using a stick. I wish we could get a pic picture for you but they are alive moving and we're scared to open the bag.
Heat gets to North End chef, who goes public with hatred of neighboring sub shop's giant lobster roll
Maybe the cooler weather will help restore order to the fetid streets of the North End.
Sith Lobster landed in Gloucester.
UPDATE: It was all a joke. Apparently landlubbers like me don't know when to take a Gloucester lobsterman seriously.
