Word of Mouth and some Lobster Salad

Have you ever eaten at a new restaurant or gone to see a movie solely based on the recommendation of a friend? That's word of mouth marketing at it's best and it's something that restaurant owners, product manufacturers, and service providers dream about it - free advertising that comes with the power of a personal recommendation.

A few months ago J and I heard from a friend that this Greek restaurant we frequently get take-out from and occasionally dine-in at, The Aegean in Framingham, MA, had a great Lobster Greek Salad. We've been getting their Greek salad with chicken for years and it is fantastic so we thought we would give the Greek salad with lobster meat a try. They also have excellent avgolomeno, a chicken egg lemon soup, and an amazing seafood casserole of sauteed scallops, shrimp and lobster with scallions, diced tomatoes, olive oil and mozzerella cheese.

We've always been happy with their Greek salad with chicken, with lots of fresh crisp greens, some sliced cucumbers, sliced green peppers, sliced red onions, cherry tomatoes, and a few kalamata olives as well as lots of great, authentic feta cheese made from sheeps milk. The dressing for their Greek salads is just a simple light olive oil. So when we got the salads with lobster meat home we thought that it would just be some lobster meat on top of the usual salad, however it was topped with lobster salad. Seriously good lobster salad! If we did not hear about this great salad choice from a friend I don't know that we ever would have ordered it. Who would have thought lobster salad would go great on top of a Greek salad? We sure didn't, but now we're telling all our friends about it too - and I'm telling you! So if you live in the Framingham area, love lobster, and love Greek salads, stop in to The Aegean for their Greek Salad with Lobster Meat! You'll love it!


  1. Will keep this place in mind the next time I'm passing through Framingham -- thanks!

  2. Hi Lydia, you definitely should! There is a second location in Watertown, right next door to the Arsenal and Watertown Malls.
