New England Clam Chowder

12 05 2014

I was very much looking forward to trying the New England clam chowder during my recent visit to Boston.  It’s the best thing on a cold wintry day and it seemed like the best lunch on a cold spring day at a cafe on Newbury Street.

I also tried the “lite” version at Legal Sea Foods (on which I will write more about later).  I prefer the regular creamy version.

Where clam chowder is said to have originated.  It's the oldest running restaurant in the U.S.

The Union Oyster House is the oldest running restaurant in the U.S. and was serving clam chowder by 1836. I remember going there once and eating at the bar with my parents when we lived in Boston.
