A couple of Maine lobster roll notes having recently returned from the Pine Tree State:
 
(1)   Down East Books recently released the quasi-cookbook...
 
 
...a $ 14.95 read featuring lots of photos and a few recipes
including for Red's cocktail sauce, coleslaw and "Puff Dog" -- a
cheese and bacon stuffed hot dog then batter-fried.
 
 
 
(2)   And the July 25, 2010 issue of the...
 
 
...ran a listing of ten top rated Maine spots serving-up
the venerable lobster roll and including that produced by:
 
Red's (Wiscasset)
the Lobster Shack (Cape Elizabeth)
Bob's Seafood Restaurant (Windham)
Bayley's Lobster Pound (Scarborough)
the Lobster Dock (Boothbay Harbor)
Miss Brunswick Diner (Brunswick)
Nunan's Lobster Hut (Cape Porpoise)
Harraseeket Lunch & Lobster (South Freeport)
the Thirsty Whale (Bar Harbor)
 
and
 
the Camden Deli (Camden).
 
 
FYI.

Shain's of Maine (in Sanford, Maine) has an incredibly fresh and full lobster roll for just $5.99. Might be the best lobster roll value in the State.

I looked at the pictures of the lobster roll that Shain's has to offer for $5.99. The picture looks good, nice chunks of lobster on a toasted New England roll. It also looks like it does a better business selling ice cream. I wonder why the Lobster roll doesn't get review more. If the Lobster roll is good this would be the best value in New England..............pnwc

The Maine Lobster Lady "Winters" in Phoenix and "Summers" on Isle au Haut, Maine serving her island friends, and visitors to the most remote sector of Acadia National Park 
An island version of The Maine Lobster Lady food truck is in the process of being built and will be stationed just west of the Ranger's Station, a quarter mile or so from the town landing. She hopes to be ready to serve by late June.
I helped her get started here in AZ a few years ago and she's going Gangbusters.

This is a classic New England sandwich best served on a regular ol' hot dog bun which I prefer grilled. (Pepperidge Farm is my favorite) I use big, meaty chunks of fresh lobster, no onion or herbs, and just a bit of lemon juice. I could eat this every day--if lobster wasn't so pricey!

I was in Maine last month.  The lobster was so cheap we ate  it  all the time.  There is some kind of lobster cootie coming up the coast toward Maine.  It is only suppose to effect the appearance of the shell with big lesions on them.  I happened to have one and It did effect the taste.  So keep your lobsters at home Connecticut!
  I never got to Shanes in Sanford.  $5:99 is still the price. All the restaurants still rip you off with high lobster prices because they can. we have an rv so we get the lobsters and steamers cooked and eat them back at the campground.  Oh, and don't forget the fried clams and onion rings.  We also got lobsters and steamers in Hampton N.H. at the Fishermans coop.  The last nite we were in New England we had 21/2 lb lobsters @$5.99 a lb cooked.  The fresh calamari was $2:00 a  lb
  Back in Florida now.  Fish sucks here, but Gulf shrimp(white) are delish.

Last month we ate one afternoon at the Maine Diner in Wells. I decided to try their "famous" lobster pie. And I'm here to tell you that is definitely the way to go.


Try it, I'll be you will agree with me.

Roz and I were in Portland, Boothbay and Freeport Maine last week.  We found several places that had 3 1 1/2 pound lobsters plus salad bar for $20.00.  Very very good.

That's really, really cheap.  Last week I called Commercial Lobster in Boston (where I used to work) and had two 2lb. lobsters sent to us.  I didn't ask how much.  I'm afraid to get my next credit card bill.    But it was worth it because they were delicious and lobster is one of Michael's favorite foods.

Tired of plain steamed lobster or lobster rolls? Or want a list of new restaurants to try?
An article in the Bangor Daily News:
http://bangordailynews.com/slideshow/the-most-unique-lobster-dishes-in-maine-8-dishes-that-shake-rattle-and-roll/
Lobster dumplings (as in dim sum), a lobster club sandwich (lobster AND bacon?), lobster on a stick, lobster tacos, Lobster Lo’Maine, lobster burritos...  The lobster dishes are described along with the price and the restaurants where they are sold.

I haven't had the lobster club described here, but I have had a lobster club elsewhere that was an absolutely wonderful sandwich.  Most of the dishes in the news article sound very good, and I usually prefer lobster in a very simple form.

Our visit to Five Island Lobster in Georgetown ME this past Saturday, only affirms my previous opinion that I'll take one steamed lobster at market price over a half dozen free lobster rolls from Red's Eats any day of the week.

I remember Five Islands so fondly, but unfortunately haven't been back to Maine for several years.  But if I were to go back, and it was open, that would be the first place I'd return to.

The only thing missing from those gorgeous pictures of Five Islands (well, ok, maybe a few more steamers!) is the stuff found on Cape Cod and few areas with a Portuguese population.....a hardy hunk of Linguica sausage!  Placed on the top allowing its garlicky goodness to drip down on the corn, clams.and maybe a few red potatoes. Doesn't do much to the lobster, but it infuses the clam broth used for "dipping" with a wonderful flavor.....and tastes darn good by itself!

JB-ME.....your post about exotic lobster (nice!) reminded me of a time in the late 80's when I took the family for a cple of weeks to Nevis and St Kitts.  Having lunch one day at a hole in the wall in the capital of St. Kitts (along with our cab driver/tour guide who I invited along and which made me feel it might be good), I had a Grilled cheese and Lobster sandwich along with some fries.  Spiny lobster that you find in warm waters but still a delicious sandwich! Got the bill and was amazed to find the fries were more than the sandwich!!!! ( both still cheap!)  Seems Potatoes are all imported whereas the lobsters come from the  cove about 1/8 mile away!

Sounds like a really nice sandwich and a great trip memory! It reminds me of other non-traditional ways to serve lobster--like the present trendy mac and cheese restaurants I read about and often you see lobster mac and cheese dishes. And there are lobster mac and cheese cooking contests, too.

For those thinking about lobster and next summer, the Maine Lobster Festival is held in Rockland at the end of July-early August every year. The 2015 dates for the festival are July 30-August 2, 2015. To see what events were held this year, see the website.
http://www.mainelobsterfestival.com/
This is a fun event, and I've attended. I used to live in Rockland, and my father was from Vinalhaven, an island which can be reached by a Maine State ferry from Rockland. This year the U.S. Coast Guard Barque Eagle was there. In the past they have had US Navy vessels anchored just beyond the Breakwater in the harbor with tours available. They usually have country music and blues, too. And lobster and seafood in lots of forms and blueberry pancake breakfasts and all sorts of activities. It's a real community effort with lots of volunteers making it happen.
