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.
