Pike Place Chowder (Seattle)

So my brother is currently going to school at Gonzaga. Needless to say, this year, being in the final four is exciting for everyone on the west coast. I visited my brother last year and told him to meet me in Seattle because I hear the food is pretty good there. The original Starbucks, the fish market, anything touristy around the space needle. It had to be primed for tasty dishes. What I learned was that they had phenomenal seafood soup. Possibly the best. Pike Place Chowder! Always a line (which seems ridiculous at the time but it moves quick) and worth the wait.


I was lucky enough to go with a group of people so in one sitting we got to try the crab roll, seafood bisque, market chowder, New England clam chowder.


The crab, legendary. Sweet, nice chew. Complimented by a soft roll and tangy mayo. The soups…oh so good. The seafood bisque had a nice tomatoey flavor but was loaded with tons of seafood. A little fishy  (could barely tell) but so rich and all the other seafood made it hearty and delicious. The star was the New England clam chowder. Winner of multiple awards for good reason. Rich, creamy, perfectly spiced, oh so good. No fishy seafood taste and just all around goodness. If you are making your way to the west coast, catch a Bulldogs game and eat this chowder. It. Is. Glorious!
