Awesome Lobster Dishes of Maine

I knew that my trip to Maine would be filled with lobster, but what I didn’t expect was how many different ways I would get to eat lobster. I was prepared for a monotony of steamed lobster with butter and lobsters rolls every day, but surprisingly I never had to repeat a dish, there was so much variety.

I had a lobster and Swiss cheese omelet, lobster stew, lobster roles, Italian-style pasta with lobster, steamed whole lobster, lobster corn chowder, lobster bisque, lobster cakes, lobster mac and cheese, and even lobster in Vietnamese noodle soup.

I'm still not a believer in the seafood-diary combo, but this would have made it impossible to eat lobster in Maine. Whether is was melted butter on the side, or mashed lobster with mayo in a roll, or cream in a bisque or stew, diary was omnipresent.
In nearly every dish I was impressed with the portion of the meat and fresh taste. But if you want to recreate my lobster experience add $20 to your daily food budget, because lobster don’t come cheap.
