6 Chowders to Sample on the East Coast

6 Chowders to Sample on the East Coast

One of the best things about traveling is the ability to try different foods. Right in the very locations they were founded. Meaning you’re in for some delicious flavor – straight from those who know how to best whip up their ancestors’ dishes. And when heading to the Northeast, there’s perhaps no better example than chowder. (Or if you’re visiting Boston, chauw-dah.) How can you go wrong? The area is right there in the name – meaning New England clam chowder, along with many other chowders, should be directly on your radar. Yes even if it doesn’t feel like soup season. After all, the locals aren’t going to stop eating it, so neither should you! Make your way to the Northeast and try these incredible dishes.

New England Clam Chowder

As stated, this is a must-try. Creamy, full of fresh clam, and brooding with veggies, it’s a dish many could eat every day. Better yet, try multiple times throughout your trip for different versions on a local favorite. Add in cheeses, spices, and more to find your favorite concoction of a regional favorite. Locals insist on adding crackers or croutons, too. A simple way to add texture and flavor without sacrificing chowder quality.

Turkey Chowder

Perfect for those who don’t eat seafood, the turkey chowder is a close cousin, and still among Northeastern ranks. Full of creamy goodness, this version comes with plenty of juicy turkey, which gives the entire dish new (but still delicious) flavor. Most recipes also come with onions and celery, as well as a small kick of cayenne powder. Try a sample with rice for a more filling variation – great for substituting a Thanksgiving dish!
