After my high school graduation, my parents decided to spend a week exploring the New England coast. My food obsessed family decided to drive up to Maine for a day trip to try the cholesterol packed lobster roll. Although I had suffered from a tough shellfish allergy about a year ago, I was ready to risk my life for my favorite meats.What I ended up ordering was a recipe for deadly itchy hives: crab cakes, fried oysters, fried clams, fried scallops, fried shrimp and of course their famous lobster roll.
This small cup of clam chowder would have been nice for a chilly afternoon. However, as soon as I scooped my spoon down to the bottom of the bowl to stir up the chunks of clams and potatoes, I noticed that the chowder was thin and watery.
After a somewhat disappointing day, I left Maine determined than ever find the perfect Lobster roll!
