Seattle Pike Street Chowder

After all these years, I finally had the chance to taste this. I am surprised I did not eat this on my first trip (or 2nd or 3rd or 4th or xxth trip to Seattle)…

The very famous Seattle Pike Street Chowder.

Located at Pike Street Market at downtown Seattle, it was an easy find to the shop.

But there is definitely a queue to get in. On a Sunday afternoon, the queue snaked all the way out of the shop into the lane and more… However, I love the orderly way in which the customers queue to get in and not rush to “chop” a seat even when they are not even at the head of the queue. How nice.. (well some people did thought it was appropriate to sit at empty tables while their friends queued but very quickly, discovered they are not to do so….thank god).

See.. a large signboard that said so :) So don’t be the ugly tourists here okie… image, image, image :)

You can buy the set of samplers although personally, I simply love the original New England Clam Chowder (oh yes, America is the new England.. HA)..
Maybe it is just me :)..
