My family is in town for the weekend and my sister’s boyfriend mentioned last night he is trying to get a taste of the New England cuisine they don’t have back in SoCal. I know good spots for all the other foods I can think of for him to try, but I can’t think of any specific place for Fried Clams as usually I get them on the Cape or South Shore, both of which are too much of an excursion for them on this trip. Which got me thinking, I don’t really know where in the more central area of Boston or Camberville area (where I live and they are staying) has a good and not overly expensive plate of fried clams worthy of being one’s first try. I think the only place I’ve really had them around the area is Summer Shack.
They’re also thinking of renting a car to drive up to Salem, so if there’s a good spot in Salem, or somewhere in between that could work too.
