Maine Food Specialties
Maine is famous for many food specialties that attract visitors to the state – many return annually primarily to enjoy the amazing specialty foods. So what are these culinary delights that beckon visitors to return? During our unscientific poll of Maine dinners, we spoke to at breakfast, lunch, and dinner we discovered what foods were most often mentioned. It’s no surprise that Maine seafood dishes like Maine Lobster (stuffed, broiled, or Lobster Roll) were the leading foodie favorites. Also frequently suggested were Maine oysters, Atlantic caught Haddock, Fried Clams, Scallops, Maine Crab, and of course Maine’s famous “steamed clams”.¬† Called “Steamers” or “Steam-ahs” these local clams are steamed and served with drawn butter and lemon. Sweet and tasty “Steamer” fans have been known to travel thousands of miles for this famous appetizer. Steamers pair well with beer or light white wine. Wear a bib to protect clothing. Steamers are primarily served before your main entree.
Maine breakfast dinners were quick to mention Maine Blueberry pancakes, a favorite at Maine Diner and other local restaurants. The blueberries grown in Maine are wild blueberries and many claim the taste and health benefits are simply just sensational. Try them. Another Maine specialty is “Indian Pudding” – the name may no longer be “politically correct” but the flavor of this dish will bring a smile to everyone. This New England favorite dates back to colonial days.
Maine casual food includes amazing pizza pies and Mexican food that will have you checking your GPS – so authentic, fresh, and delicious. Farm-to-table fare is popular with seasonal veggies available from May until October.
