Split Top (New England) Hot Dog Buns
With lobster roll season coming, I wanted to know if anyone knows of anywhere in DC where one can buy the traditional New England split top (as opposed to side split) hot dog rolls that are essential for a good lobster roll. I haven't seen them anywhere.
I don't know that much about lobster rolls, having first had the pleasure only recently on a trip through New England, but Trader Joe's sells a whole wheat split-top hotdog bun. Might be what you want. I don't know of any local bakery that makes them.
Giant sometimes carries the Pepperidge Farms variety. They're split top but a bit heavier & sweeter than what you'd find in NE.
I have always found them at Wegmans- they are by the seafood counter, not with the rest of the bread.
