November 3 at 10 on the Travel Channel, Food Wars comes to Maine. This summer I traveled down to Kennebunkport to be a judge for the episode airing tonight. It was an extremely tough battle between Alisson’s Restaurant and The Clam Shack. Both lobster rolls were totally delicious! But they were also very different. In my three years as Food Editor at Down East, I’ll admit I’ve tried my fair share of lobster rolls. (It’s a tough job, what can I say!) The rolls in this competition were definitely two of the best in the state. But I’ve also learned that the lobster roll is a very personal thing — some people are fervently for mayonnaise. Others call themselves purists and prefer only melted butter. For some, claw meat reigns supreme. For others it’s all about the tail. You’ll have to tune in at 10 tonight to find out who wins this epic battle!
