Maine Made: The Best Lobster Rolls

Lobster Roll

Maine is famous for several things: moose sightings, L. L. Bean, state parks, blueberries, camping and, of course, the beautiful lakes and coastline that have earned it the name “Vacationland”. However, the most famous aspect of Maine living is, by far, lobster. They’re shipped far and wide, but they don’t get any fresher than the coasts and inlets of Maine.

Eating a full lobster, for an individual that has never done so, can be an intimidating task. The hard shell and sharp edges may very well turn away diners from one of the most enjoyable culinary experiences. Luckily— there is an easier way to eat this Maine delicacy.

Maine lobster rolls, unlike their Connecticut cousins, are made with a large helping of lobster and a light covering of mayonnaise on a toasted bun. There’s no fuss, no shell, just an enjoyable dining experience.
