Did you miss the recent Clam Chowder Cook-Off (above pic) in Santa Cruz? Don’t worry–the best clam chowder is right here in …. San Jose ! That’s right – it’s better than any clam chowder in Santa Cruz, Capitola, San Francisco, or Half Moon Bay.
Fisherman’s Wharf in Monterey has the best anywhere (#1 Old Fishermen’s Grotto, #2 Crabby Jim’s), but in terms of the area Capitola to San Francisco, you’ll find the best clam chowder at Giorgio’s Italian Food & Pizzeria in San Jose and Milpitas!
The clam chowder is available on Friday nights.
Here I am getting ready to slurp some in at the San Jose location….
Happy clamming 🙂
