You need to stop at Pike Place Chowder to see what all the fuss is about. When we showed up it wasn’t open yet but the line up outside the tiny little place resembled that of one for a methadone clinic.
So apparently the fuss is about freaking good chowder. We couldn’t decide on our options so we picked the sampler- and for $11.95 we got 4- 5 ounce tastings of the Seafood Bisque, New England Clam, Manhattan, and market chowder which was crab and oyster. Honestly, they were all creamy goodness except the Manhattan which was a bit too salty. We also ordered a Dungeness crab roll and although we were far too full of chowder to eat it—we still did. It was fresh, and all that you would want a crab roll to be. And it came with a cocktail sauce that had my husband looking for random things to dip into it. Share a sandwich and do the sampler.
