Seattle: Chowders

I never thought I’ll go on a diet – me and food? It’s always a love relationship.

One thing that I really miss about Seattle is the wide variety and amazing soups and chowders filled with fresh seafood. My favourites are those places that have sampler platters! Four different chowders in a meal. Ship me over please someone.

In everyday situation, I normally can’t finish an entire meal on my own. In USA, I find that the portions are so huge! Each meal seems to feed two of me. Chowders and soups are easier for me to finish.

I didn’t manage a picture but my favourite soup was the crab and corn bisque from Seastar. If you’re ever in Bellevue area, it’s a great restaurant although the prices veer on the pricier side.

My most memorable chowder experience came from Duke’s Chowder House in Southcenter Mall. I love having variety in my food and the ability to build my own platter.

The most affordable soup that is a one-meal dish (not literally) is clam chowder at City Soups near the Seattle office that I visited. With each soup, I believe you have a choice of toppings and a side of a bread. I vaguely remember my meal being affordable, about 5 – 6USD?

Clam chowder (I think) with mushrooms topping and cornbread

My most underwhelming chowder was probably from Pike’s Place. I went there with a lot of expectations, my brainwaves went, “Omg it’s Pike’s Place Chowder! So many travel sites recommends this!”

When I tried my first spoon, it was just a “Oh.” Not in a good way.
