Bite Into Maine serves six types of lobster rolls, including a Connecticut-style roll with hot butter, and others tossed with chipotle or wasabi mayo, and they’re some of the best in Portland. Regardless of when you go, both of their locations will be slammed (there’s a second trailer located at the Allagash Brewery), and each roll will cost you just under $20. But if you’re truly on a quest for the most Maine experience possible, a visit to this food truck parked next to a lighthouse at Cape Elizabeth is a must.
