There are a few food items that are synonymous with Maine, one of them being the ever-so-delicious lobster roll. Tourists have been flocking to every corner of the Pine Tree state for decades to devour the delicacy. However, not all lobster rolls are built the same. Often, the biggest complaint people have about a lobster is...not enough lobster. So, the Taste of Maine restaurant in Woolwich decided to solve that problem once and for all.
Shared on Facebook by Taste of Maine restaurant, they claim to be serving the world's largest lobster roll, a monster sub that is at least three times the size of a typical lobster roll. It's a signature menu item and if you're successful in completing the entire lobster roll by yourself, your reward is entry into the very exclusive clean plate club. If you don't think that's possible, think again. Apparently, this gentleman has taken down the world's largest lobster roll TWELVE times.
So what makes up the world's largest lobster roll? Well, it's simple really. The no frills menu item is simply a super-sized sub roll filled with lobster, lettuce, and mayo. It's served with a side of fries or watermelon to clean your pallet (we're kidding about the pallet part). The number one question in comments seems to be about the price. Given current market conditions for lobster, the daily market price for the 'world's largest lobster roll' has been between $150 and $170. Some will scoff at the price, but if you're traveling from afar just to get your hands on a Maine lobster roll, why not try the largest one?
So, if you're up for the challenge, you can't miss the Taste of Maine restaurant along Route 1 in Woolwich. It's that restaurant with the giant lobster sitting on top of it. Better bring your appetite.
