Clam chowder is a dish made of clams and broth, usually adding diced potatoes, onions, salt pork or bacon, celery and sometimes carrots for the sake of color. It originated in America though it appears to be more popular among tourists than locals. Every region has its own variety. San Francisco is not an exception: at Boudin Bakery you will be served the chowder in a sourdough bread bowl. Such a combination makes the chowder taste much better. This is probably one of the most delightful experiences for chilly days—to enjoy a steaming clam chowder by the water covered with fog.
