book coverAbout the Book

The state of Maine punches way above its weight class when it comes to culinary adventures. There’s so much to explore in Maine’s extraordinary food landscape, and Unique Eats and Eateries of Maine is just what you need to experience the most interesting, unusual, and unforgettable places that Maine has to offer.

For example: At Le Mu Eats in hilly, wooded Bethel, chef/owner Sa Sengsavang whips up Laotian and Southern cuisine reflecting his southeast Asian and Virginia roots. Then there’s the lobster roll at the Clam Shack in touristy Kennebunk, one of the most lauded and award-winning lobster rolls in the world. Head Downeast to Milbridge and Vasquez Mexican Takeout, a bright-green eatery that began life in a converted bus serving migrant workers from nearby blueberry fields. And be sure to try a “red snapper” hot dog—a bright-crimson wiener found only in Maine—at Simone’s, a 100-year-old restaurant in downtown Lewiston.

Let award-winning food and travel writer Mike Urban be your guide to unique places for one-of-a-kind food experiences in the Pine Tree State.
