Tour de Honeymoon Lobster

We spent the majority of our honeymoon eating our way through Maine. There were brilliant bites in Portland, especially at Miyake Fore Street, but Kennebunkport also held a special place in our stomachs:

Before we headed to Kennebunkport, we had to stop by Eventide Oyster Co. in Portland for another bite of the highly-praised and addictive brown butter lobster roll. The Chinese-style steamed bun soaks up juicy, sweet chunks of lobster bathed in a warm, nutty caramelized sauce. It just takes one bite to be hooked on this lobster roll. 

We started our first official night in Kennebunkport feasting on a 3-course lobster meal at Stripers Waterside, our hotel's adjoining restaurant. The only standout of the night was a lobster taco but the highlight of our meal was sharing our dinner with President H.W. Bush, Babs, and his secret service team. They sat behind our table, unbeknownst to us, and we didn't realize the family was there until it was time for him to leave and he gave us a very presidential goodbye wave. 

The Clam Shack is more than just clams. Of course the fried clam bellies were spectacular but the lobster roll here deserves just as much praise. Our favorite classic roll of the trip featured a whole lobster tail in all its glory. The secret is to ask for the lobster with a half butter, half mayo concoction. 


Mabel's Lobster Claw was conveniently located across from our hotel, lending itself as the for the perfect location for an afternoon snack. As a change of pace, we ordered a half lobster, half crab roll option. To my surprise, I enjoyed the the crab half more. Perhaps it's because we were at least six consecutive lobster dishes deep into our honeymoon and were craving something other than lobster. This was the night we took a break and had steak for dinner. 
Despite high cholesterol levels, we just couldn't leave Kennebunkport without one final morsel of lobster. We indulged in a tempura lobster tail at Wicked Tails because anything on a stick and fried is awesome. Then we saw lobster poutine on the menu and squealed with glee. It was fate! Our last forkfuls of lobster was bathed in a rich lobster stew, SQUEAKY cheese curds, and hand-cut fries. We ended our honeymoon on a great bite!
