8 Maine Sandwiches You Have To Try Before You Die
You’re hungry. You want something quick. What better option than a sandwich? You can never go wrong with a sandwich and here in Maine we’ve got some pretty great options. Skip the fancy meals, the complicated recipes and head out to these places for the best sandwich options in Vacationland!
1. The Egg and Pickle Sandwich / Tandem Coffee + Bakery, Portland
Many people only think of Tandem for breakfast, but we recommend a stop for lunch. They have a few different sandwich options, but we love their egg and pickle option. It comes with hardboiled eggs, pickled beets and a dose of mayo. Visit them at: 742 Congress St, Portland / (207) 805-1887
2. The Stuffed Bird Panini / Saco Island Deli, Saco
There's no real guarantee you'll be able to get it, but if you love sandwiches you're going to want to try the Stuffed Bird Panini. It's made with Antibiotic-Free Turkey Breast, House-Made Stuffing, Cranberry-Mayo and Romaine grilled and served on handmade local Italian bread. Visit them at: 110 Main St, Saco / (207)-286-3842
3. The Fried Oyster Bo' Boy / Po'Boys & Pickles, Portland
This Portland establishment is great at exactly what you'd imagine they're great at - the po'boy! Stop in for the classic fried oyster version. Visit them at: 1124 Forest Ave, Portland / (207) 518-9735
4. The Big Top / The Big Top Deli, Brunswick
This circus-themed deli has a huge selection for both meat lovers and vegetarians. Come here for the Big Top's namesake sandwich, which is pictured here. We also love the highly recommended Trailblazer, Oliphant or Egress. Visit them at: 70 Maine St, Brunswick / (207) 721-8900
5. The Reubenesque / 'Wich, Please
So, we have to be honest. Our favorite is The Reubenesque, which is exactly what it sounds like: sort of a Reuben, but vegetarian. However, we weren't able to get a photo of that beauty. Instead, we're giving you a photo of their awesome lobster roll. Because what Mainer doesn't love a photo of a lobster roll? Visit them at: 1 Park Place, Rockland
6. The Steak Bomb / Bennett's Sandwich Shop, Kennebunk
Bennett's staff is one of the most welcoming in Maine! But, it's the Steak Bomb that has people talking. This sandwich is incredibly fresh and the meat is shaved perfection! Visit them at: 200 Sea Rd, Kennebunk / (207) 967-5401
7. The Italian / Amato's, Various
It might be one of the more well-known on this list, but we still think the classic Maine Italian deserves a place on this best sandwich list! Visit them all over the state of Maine!
8. The Fried Chicken Sandwich / The Palace Diner, Biddeford
The Fried Chicken sandwich is a thing of dreams. Just being at The Palace Diner is actually pretty dreamy. We've written lots about them before, so maybe it's time to just check them out. Visit them at: 18 Franklin St, Biddeford / (207) 284-0015
