Maine Eats

I've stated before on the blog that Maine is one of my favorite places. I loved it the first time I visited and I've loved it every other time since. One of the main draws to Maine - see what I did there? - is eating lobster. Lots and lots of lobster!



But for someone who loves Maine I have one unique feature - I don't care for lobster. I've tried it. It just doesn't do much for me. But when we head up to The Vacation State, Mr. UR just can't get enough. So here are some of the things we ate in Maine - but mostly him.



Taking advantage of Maine blueberries, a blueberry beer from Kennebec River Brewery....





A lobster roll and fries from The Black Frog in Greenville, Maine on Moosehead Lake....





Poutine  (the Canadian delicacy of fries mixed with cheese curds covered in gravy) and a beer from Three Tides in Belfast, Maine....





Lobster  eaten at our vacation cabin - Hannaford's Grocery Store will steam them for you if you order them ahead and then you can pick them up....





Another quintessential Maine item - the Whoopie Pie.. Two devils food cookies with whipped frosting in between. I try to try as many as I can while in Maine. I even had Whoopie Pie fudge from Perry's Nut House in Belfast, which I highly recommend trying.





And last but not least, lobster grilled cheese  from Linda Bean's restaurant across from the LL Bean superstore in Freeport, Maine...

Of course, that doesn't cover them all - just a small sampling when I remembered to take a picture. Or we weren't so hungry that we ate before we could even think about taking a picture. All were reported as good. You gotta love Maine!





I'm linking up with Travel Photo Thursday at Budget Traveler's Sandbox,Weekend Wanderlust at A Brit and A Southerner, Weekend Travel Inspiration at Reflections Enroute  and Friday Postcards at Walking On Travels  so go give them a look-see!

  1. Wooahh! I would like to have one or two of those lobsters. Plus, the lobster roll and the lobster grill cheese looks delicious. For what I see, they have all things lobster in Maine.

  2. You had me at lobster, then you really had me drooling at the lobster roll. Maybe we should add Maine to our list when we visit the States.

  3. I had the best blueberry ice cream in my life in Maine. But the lobster is where it's at for me. Preferably not in a restaurant because it's no fun eating a lobster if you have to be neat about it.

  4. I love Maine too! And I seem to stuff myself each summer when I head home to the east coast to visit Mom. Unfortunately we're not going this year, so no lobsta for me! Yummy post!

    1. Sorry you're not making it home to visit. I'm not making it to Maine this summer but I did get to Conn. and RI. And yes, Mr. Ur got his lobster!

  5. I adore a good lobster roll. I insisted my family make an inconvenient detour and eat lunch when no one was hungry because I had read about a really good lobster roll shack "between two lighthouses." It seemed like the perfect Maine moment. I'm so glad you listed blueberries as that's the other food I associate with Maine. I had no idea that Whoopie Pies were a Maine thing, but I adore them so think that I shall follow your lead and try as many as possible the next time. Lobster grilled cheese -- YUM!

    1. Thanks for visiting Michele! And despite the long lines, we swear by Red's in Wiscasset, Maine for the best lobster rolls around. Only outside seating though so bring your bug spray.
