Three Ways To Enjoy Clam Chowder

Posted on: 22 November 2022

If you've gotten together with friends in the evening but are craving something to eat before you head your separate ways, seafood might be an option that appeals to everyone. With your mouth watering, it will be fun to scour the menu of a late-night seafood establishment — such as Down The Hatch Maui. Regardless of what you want to eat as your main course, you may wish to begin your meal with a starter. A popular option is clam chowder, which is on the menu at most of the seafood restaurants that you'll visit. You'll often find that this thick, hearty soup is available to order in three different ways.


A good way to order your clam chowder if you want to ensure that you have plenty of room for your main course is to order a cup of the soup. This is generally the smallest portion that is available and typically comes in a small, ceramic cup. Ordering your chowder in this size will allow you to enjoy this soup, and not worry that you'll eat so much that you'll feel too full to eat more after. If you're going to be sharing an appetizer with your group, such as a platter of breaded shrimp or calamari, a small cup of chowder can also be a good idea.


For people who love clam chowder and want to enjoy a larger amount of soup, a bowl is a logical choice. This option is a popular choice for those who have big appetites and those who plan to have a lighter main course. For example, if you're thinking about having a salad with a piece of salmon on it, but you want to ensure that you're adequately full after your meal, you may want to start the meal with a large bowl of clam chowder.

Bread Bowl

At many seafood restaurants, you'll have a third option when it comes to ordering clam chowder. Lots of eateries offer this hearty soup in a bread bowl, which means that the soup comes in a spherical loaf of bread that has the top cut off. A lot of people order their clam chowder in this way because of its uniqueness; this is a meal that you may be excited to photograph and share on social media. While you don't have to eat the bread bowl, consuming it after you finish the chowder will help you to feel fuller. Look for these three clam chowder options during your next late-night seafood restaurant visit.
