Here in Chatham, Massachusetts, it’s pronounced “chowdah,” but however you pronounce it, one thing is for sure – tourists and locals alike are constantly on the prowl for the best bowl around. Join us as we embark on our own mission to find the tastiest- then go try for yourself when you visit us on your next Cape Cod vacation.
Our first stop…the infamous Chatham Squire. A favorite New England eatery and bar, those seeking comfort food in a casual setting will find it here. Chock full of clams and tender potatoes, the Squire’s chowdah recipe didn’t disappoint. The pepper flavor, while not too strong, was distinct, and the clams were cooked to perfection. Our only complaint? Perhaps it could have been a bit thicker in consistency, but for those who don’t like their chowdah too creamy, this could be the chowdah for you.
