The other day, lunch plans fell through, and I was left sitting at my desk without food. Hungry. Sneezing and coughing. I was cold. I just had pho a few days earlier and was craving a different kind of soup. Why not chowder?
I have heard about Pike Place Chowder many times with rave reviews – fresh, creamy, delicious and comforting. I chose to skip the busy, original Pike Place location, and instead headed a few blocks up to the Pacific Place.
I went for a medium size, sans the bread bowl, and received a complimentary slice of bread and crackers. The chowder kept warm on my way back to work. I added a sprinkle of black pepper and a few shots of Tabasco and lingered on the creamy, rich, health restorative chowder.
