beetlebug over on CH first posted about this place last December and I went twice over the summer. Looking around for a place to meet a friend who lives in Concord NH for lunch, we settled on Kittery and I went back to Maine MEat yesterday. Much has been written about their pork chops and I stocked up on a bunch of those. I also bought some flat iron steaks (which I had and loved last summer) and two of their special (eg, not regular) sausages: chorizo and saltimbocca (the later of which has prosciutto, sage, garlic and white wine). Also bought some ground beef-bacon mix, some housemade kielbasa and some loin lamb chops. They are happy to cryovac everything for the freezer which is great. Taking a cue from beetlebug I called ahead and placed a lot of my order on Friday, then just added a few things when I arrived on Sunday.
I also bought some of the amazing marinated sheep-goat feta (which they call “crack cheese”). beetlebug has identified this as coming from Meredith Dairy and I just bought a tub of that from Wegmans to verify that it is the same. At Maine MEat 4 cubes is about $10, the tub I got from Wegmans has 5 cubes for $9.99. Spendy but oh so incredibly tasty. That was dinner last night along with Castelvetrano olives and cherry tomatoes.
Will report on the meat as I try it. This place is definitely worth a drive. http://www.memeat.com/
