National Clam Chowder Day is held every year on February 25th. This yummy soup is made multiple different ways. However, out of all your options, you usually must choose from either New England clam chowder or Manhattan clam chowder. There are other clam chowder soup options though with Delaware clam chowder and Florida clam chowders being high up on the list.
Clam chowder is a soup that contains both clams and broth. Depending on the variety of clam chowder soup you are either making or eating, you may find that it contains potatoes, onions, celery, bacon, pork, or tomatoes.
In my experience, most people are picky about which types of clam chowder they will eat, if they will eat it at all.
Boston is almost always declared one of the best places to eat a hot bowl of clam chowder soup. It’s practically a tradition to eat this soup all year round in New England. You can find multiple restaurants in Boston, and the rest of the state of Massachusetts, serving up New England clam chowder. But Union Oyster House has been serving this creamy soup to customers since 1826.
Before you enjoy your clam chowder in Boston, you may want to head out on a whale watching adventure.
Yes, another destination in Massachusetts made the list for the best places to enjoy clam chowder! You may not think that Cape Cod is the best destination to celebrate National Clam Chowder Day towards the end of February. And you are probably right about that. But if you can’t get away on a family vacation right now, you can always add this to your list of places to take a vacation later this summer. After all, who says you can’t enjoy clam chowder in the middle of August?!
If you do decide to venture out to Cape Cod to enjoy a little clam chowder, check out Sea Street Café in Hyannis.
Fresh seafood is also plentiful in California, so it shouldn’t be surprising that a foodie destination like Monterey offers some amazing clam chowder. Almost every restaurant in Monterey serves this creamy soup, but the Old Fisherman’s Grotto is your best option. This restaurant is located at the Old Fisherman’s Wharf. They serve their clam chowder in a bread bowl, although you can ask for a regular cup or bowl if you don’t want the bread. Make sure you grab a table that looks out towards the crystal-clear water, so you don’t miss out on the gorgeous views.
If you have been craving a bowl of spicy clam chowder, you must take a trip down to Cedar Key. This small town is where Tony’s Seafood Restaurant is located. The owner, Eric Jungklaus, created this amazing clam chowder, which won the Knorr Great Chowder Cook-Off in Rhode Island three years straight.
I don’t know about you, but I am more than ready to pack my bags to taste a little clam chowder in these destinations! However, I am not sure if I can make it in time for National Clam Chowder Day, so I may stick to making this Potato Bacon Clam Chowder recipe for my family.
