After an unexpected super late night, I barely made it to breakfast during my second day in Portland. I didn’t want to pass up the opportunity to check out Hot Suppa though. The cozy Southern restaurant is one of the hottest spots for comfort food favorites and hearty breakfast dishes. After a 30-minute wait or so, a booth was available.
The Salmon Eggs Benedict with poached eggs, smoked salmon, tomatoes, red onion, capers, an english muffin, and hollandaise with baby kale on the side was a hit. I liked their Corned Beef Hash made with shredded corned beef, potatoes, onions, and carrots with scrambled eggs and toast.
The Allagash brewery tour was really cool and I enjoyed all their beers, but another reason I had to stop by the brewery is because the Bite Into Maine food truck sets up there. Lunch time!
They bring you an authentic Maine experience with their amazing lobster rolls made with only fresh and locally sourced lobster, bread, and butter as well as local vegetables, craft sodas, and Cape Cod potato chips.
All 3 of their signature lobster rolls sounded delicious, but I decided to get the Maine Style and the Connecticut Style versions. I also had to get a Maine Root Ginger Brew soda.
The Maine Style lobster roll is served cold and made with light mayonnaise and fresh chives. The lobster portion was generous and so sweet and tender. It’s all piled onto a perfect buttery fresh baked split top roll.
lobster roll is simply dressed with warm butter and really lets the incredibly fresh lobster shine. It was divine.
The Allagash brewery and Bite Into Maine food truck should not be missed. Bite Into Maine also has locations in Fort Williams Park (open May-October) and The Commissary in Scarborough (open year round). I’m still thinking about those wonderful lobster rolls!
After some beer and a delicious lunch, I continued brewery hopping around Industrial Way.
