The bright red Lobsta Love food truck rolled into a spot outside Harvard Yard last fall and began serving classic New England fare.

The truck was on break over the holidays when the students were out of town, says owner Todd Saunders. It’s back now. Lobster rolls are here, of course, succulent knuckles and claws culled from wild Maine lobsters and served on several sizes of Iggy’s rolls, plus the classic top-loading hot dog roll ($5 to $23). There is also an Asian fusion lobster roll with light traces of ponzu, sesame oil, and fresh basil. Captain Parker’s famous clam chowder, lobster bisque (both soups are $2 or $1 with a lobster roll), crab rolls, and lobster mac and cheese, made with Annie’s organic shells and white cheddar, round out the menu. This may be the best take-out in the square. Lobsta Love food truck, 1 Oxford St., Cambridge. Open Tue, Fri, Sat 11:45 a.m.-7:30 p.m.; Sun 10:30 a.m.- 3:30 p.m.; www.lobstalove.net.
