Manhattan clam chowder at Taylor Shellfish
Sure, we love to slurp oysters by the dozen at this bivalve haven, but when the temps dip below freezing, a cup of chowder is a must. This isn't your garden variety chowder, but a Manhattan style loaded with chunks of potato and slightly chewy bits of geoduck clam. Thick and satisfying, this dish is made for the shop by the beloved Xinh's in Shelton, not far from the inlet where those giant clams grow.
