We went first to The Maine Diner located on rte 1 in Wells, Maine.
The famous sign. The diner is opened later in summer.
They serve down east fare (?). We actually went there because Guy was besides himself about the seafood chowder and the lobster pie...
I got so excited I nearly forgot to take pics! Yes that is a lobster claw in the chowder. It was one of the best I've ever tasted. It was full of lobster,scallops,shrimps and clams.
This is the lobster pie, their very famous lobster pie. It's lobster in a dish top with Ritz cracker crumbs, butter and tomalley (yep the green stuff inside the lobster). OMG! I had a religious experience! This was lobster at its best, I nearly cried!
We liked it so much we came back for supper after a looonnnggg day of shopping and thrifting. I had the rubben and Dan had an open face roast beef sandwich with mushroom gravy. So,so good. I will remember the rubben for a long time, they cook their own corn beef. I decided to push the bounderies and have dessert...I ordered bread pudding served warm with whipped cream (at our sever's strong suggestion). That was a life altering dessert. I never knew bread pudding could be so tasty! It was a cross with Xmas and bread pudding, full od raisins and spices. OMG!
I wish we could've eaten there more, but we had to go home the next day....
Speaking of Friday we headed south to Kittery for some outlet shopping and Bob's Clam Hut!
Yes that is snow pilled real high!
We had clam chowder and fish chowder and Lillian style fried clams. I was surprised to see our order top with a mound of delicious freshly made onion rings! Everything was fresh and delicious! They used recyclable containers and compostable utensils. They have the most attentive young man in the dining room who's always wanting to get you refills, check on your order, get you napkins, it's really nice.
Those clams were much better than some we had in Old Orchard....We will be back to both those restaurants! I can't wait!
So you see Guy was right! :)
