Creamy and yummy

  • Jan 15, 2010
The best Clam Chowder I've had was in Boston. 

I'm very into Chinese soups but when it comes to western soups, they are a tad too creamy or rich for me, for most part. However, I got into the hang of soups when I first had a taste of the Clam Chowder in Boston (& I don't mean the canned type). It was so good that it had enticed me to go beyond and checked out other soups whenever I toured around Europe. However, the best clam chowder I've ever tried is still that from Legal Seafood Restaurant in Boston (Long Wharf, 255 State Street). If you know of any that's better than this one, how about write a review on it? I'd love to sample them all!

Chowda Day @ Legal Seafoods on coming Wednesday, Jan. 20th. $0.60 a cup!

As for other soups I discovered to my liking, they are quite a few from Poland & Russia. I'll introduce them below and if you do get a chance to try when visiting these 2 countries, by all means do so! They are excellent!

Before that though, another soup I truly love is the Lobster Bisque. For those who are interested in cooking, here's the link to the recipe of Lobster Bisque.

Soups from Poland
Out of the many menus & restaurants in Poland, my favorite dish has to be the soups! I've tried many & have yet found any that I don't like at all.
  1. Flaki - a kind of beef-tripe soup which taste Chinese if you ask me. If you've ever tried Dim Sum beef-tripe in Hong Kong or Toronto, you'll know what it tastes like. Very similar to that. Anyway, I enjoyed it so much I ordered 2 helpings at one of the restaurant in Krakow!
  2. Barszcz - Polish Beetroot soup. Originally I had thought it might be something like the one I tried in Russia, which was the best I had ever tried of any beetroot soup. But this one is slightly different.
  3. Chlodnik - A soup made from soured cream, ham & hard-boiled eggs. I like it very much.

Soups from Russia
  1. Borcsh - Made of beet and meat served with sour cream. Yummy!
  2. Okroshka - Cucumbers, boiled eggs, beef & lean ham are the main ingredients in this soup. This soup is usually placed in the fridge before serving and served with sour cream.
So there you've it, some of my favorite soups. 
Creamy and yummy Creamy and yummy Creamy and yummy

I was surprised to find my favorite Russian soups in a Clam Chowder review :) Those pictures are making me crave some! You should make a list of your favorite soups. I'll have to agree Boston has the best chowder! Thanks for making my mouth water - on my way to the kitchen...

I'm all about Asian soups, too, particularly Chinese seafood ones.  With red vinegar! ;) They're just more light.  But I've grown really fond of clam chowder over the years.  Though I can't have too much of it since it's so rich.  I'd love to see reviews on the other soups, too, especially the chlodnik and the okroshka.  They sound fascinating! :)

There are many fanciful Asian soups I love which you might not even heard of... but, it might be too much for Lunchers! We'll see, may be one fine day. Afterall, a lot of Lunchers seem to love horror films, lol...

I agree. I am more for Asian soups than Western ones, those look very tasty! Soups on! thanks for the write up!

Mmmmm, I want mine in a sourdough bread bowl, please! Love getting these at the SF Fisherman's Wharf.

I am not a fan of soup as a meal. I don't find it filling enough and I'm more of a fan of things that need to be chewed because doing so tricks my mind into feeling full. Nevertheless, clam chowder is my favorite, with or without bread, even as a meal in itself. I personally enjoy it served straight in a cup or bowl, but others also enjoy it served in a sourdough breadbowl. Regardless, I love how the thick soup is so filling and hearty, especially with all those potato chunks floating around!    &nbs …

About this food


Clam Chowder is a chowder usually made with broth and clams and enriched with potatoes, onions, and other vegetables to taste. The New England variety, made with cream and flour, is the most popular variety. However, other versions are becoming increasingly popular, including Manhattan chowder, made with tomatoes for flavor and coloring.

The English word "chowder" is said to have originated in Newfoundland, where French-Breton fishermen threw their daily catch into a large hot pot called a chaudron (meaning "cauldron").
