Shell Shack invites diners to “chowder down” and celebrate National Clam Chowder Day with a FREE bowl of clam chowder with a purchase of an entree.
Clam Chowder is steeped in history and traces its origins back to 1800s New England, where it may have been the first truly American soup. The term “chowder” originated from the French word “chaudiere,” which refers to the large pot used by fishermen to cook fish stews.
Today, clam chowder is an established icon of American cooking and is made all over the world. There are two distinct styles of clam chowder: The white New England version is milk or cream based, while the red Manhattan Clam Chowder uses tomatoes in its base.
Shell Shack has several locations throughout the DFW area. For more information, including the locations nearest you, please visit www.shellshack.com.
