Trap Kitchen Camden
Sometimes you just need to get down and dirty with a couple of lobster tails. Trap Kitchen in Camden understands this. That’s why their seafood bucket comes with a pair of throwaway gloves. On the menu of soul food-inspired classics, the star of the show is their XXL lobster tails that are so meaty and so perfectly juicy that we think about them at least four times a day. Plus with their buckets that include addictively good bang bang prawns and creamy, spicy mac and cheese, it’s one of the best spots for a deeply satisfying seafood fix. The ground floor has the kind of intimate, sink-into-your-seat booths that will have you ordering two more rounds of cocktails just to stay another half hour. Upstairs is where we’d go for a date night that starts with BBQ chicken wings and ends with a nap. It’s a popular place—they’ve got a cult following on social media and it feels like three-quarters of their 160k Instagram followers are trying to get a table on a Saturday night. So book ahead and make sure to come with an empty stomach and a willingness to get messy.
