Sometimes, your tastebuds crave something special. They hanker for the kind of dish you're not going to eat every day, aka a treat yo'self type of culinary experience. Here are three things that they'd likely demand in that situation: lobster, truffles and champagne.

If that sounds like your idea of an indulgent meal, Lobster & Co has you sorted between Tuesday, May 31–Sunday, July 10, which is when it's returning to the Arts Centre Forecourt for a fresh season of decadence. As always, you'll only find those three aforementioned items on the menu, too; the Lobster & Co van is solely serving lobster rolls with truffle fries and flutes of champagne.

You'll pay $50 for the food combo, which features a whole confit lobster tail sourced from The Geraldton Fishermen's Co-op in Western Australia, served warm on a caramelised brioche bun with buttermilk fennel slaw, plus a side of parmesan truffle fries. A chilled glass of the champers will cost you $20 extra.

Pull up a seat at one of the umbrellaed tables on the forecourt to enjoy your lobster, chips and bubbles while gazing out over the Yarra, and send those winter blues packing.
