Portland General: 21 reviews and 18 photos


Favorite thing: It is much cheaper to buy live lobster in Maine and cook it by yourself than to eat out at the restaurant.

Simple cooking steps:

1) Get a pot with a lid and put enough water to cover lobster comletel.

2) Use 1 table spoon of salt for every liter of water.

3) Boil water and add live lobster for about 10-15 minutes depending on size of lobster.

4) Melt some butter and dinner is ready.

While in a restaurant, you may wear a bib to protect your clothes.

At home, you can wear a T-shirt, make a mess and enjoy the lobster.
