New England Clam Chowder
Never order New England clam chowder if you aren’t in New England.
Real New England Clam Chowder is heavenly. It is creamy, with small chunks of potato, clams, and celery. The best way to eat it is with a few oyster crackers dropped in every few bites.
When I was little we used to go to Boston all the time on the weekends. We often ate at this restaurant in the hotel in Copley Plaza that had a dinner buffet. While the parents and brothers went for salad, fish, baked potatoes and more, my cousin R and I went for the chowder. We would fill cup after cup of it until we were full. I never liked oyster crackers as a kid, so I would give her all of mine. Those were my favorite dinners!
Here are my favorite places in Rhode Island to find delicious clam chowder:
Hemenway’s in Providence
22 Bowen’s Wharf in Newport
The Black Pearl in Newport
The Mooring in Newport
I JUST had chowder a few days ago in Rhode Island, but I am already missing it.
