The fortune cookie in Windham. The best Chinese food I've ever eaten.

Margaritas in Portland. For some reason I can't find Mexican like that anymore.

The Pickled Herring is absolutely fabulous in Eastport! A wide variety of choices and the staff is pleasent. The only drawback is it can be a bit pricey at times.


Another great place to eat is the Chowder House in Eastport. Prices are reasonable, but the food can be hit or miss....depending on the season.

Fore Street in Portland. The Frog and Turtle in Westbrook. When I'm in the mood for a pub with a nice local atmosphere I go to Andy's in Portland.

Becky's is incredible for breakfast, particularly if you like fruit bowls. Joe's Boathouse in South Portland is another. Say hi to Randy, the chef.

Moody's diner in Waldoboro is a classic.

The Havana in Bar Harbor is hands down the best place I have ever eaten in Maine.

As far as Bangor goes, Fiddleheads, and Massimo's are solid as well.

While in the Waterville area, if you want an amazing sandwich go to Big G's Deli. My Favorite Sandwich "Dr. Stangepork"

Having lived all around the country, I understand your angle. There's nothing like mexican food from Arizona.... I see Margarita's was mentioned earlier in the article. After eating Mexican food in AZ and Colorado, I almost laugh when I read that folks think they have amazing mexican food up here in Maine hehe.

My experience with food in New England is that it is more bread-based and much sweeter on the pallet than midwest and south-western usa food. SW/MidWest food is much spicier and a little dryer... by dryer I mean not as much butter/grease/oil in the food once it's served.... doesn't mean it's not deep-friend in lard... just means it's not as drippy or sitting in a puddle... also, this is a generalization... not a rule.

Pizza out west tends to have a more floury flavor and the sauces are much spicier... like salsa-spicier, in new england, the dough has more of a sweet-ish tang and the sauces are saltier/sweeter.

In new england, seafoods and breads are very much a part of every-day meals. In the mid west, seafood is a rarity; red meat and corn/potato-based side dishes are much more predominant. In the south-west, red vegetables (tomatoes, peppers, onions, ect.) and rices are much more a major part of meals.
