Rhode Island Style Chowder

Posted

This clear broth version of the popular seafood soup originated in South County and is traditionally made with quahogs, broth, potatoes, onions and bacon. A lesser-known Rhode Island style chowder, which is similar to its Portuguese-originated “Manhattan” cousin and made with a red tomato broth, potatoes and clams, can also be found throughout the state. The most popular chowder – excuse me – chowdah, is still the creamy New England style. I suggest finding a place that serves a thick, hearty version because the thicker the chowdah, the better for clam cake dunking. Aunt Carrie’s, 1240 Ocean Road, Narragansett. 783-7930
