You Will Want To Take This Incredible Chowda Trail In Connecticut As Soon As You Can

In New England, we undoubtedly love our clam chowder – or is it chowda? However you pronounce it, no one can argue the creamy deliciousness that can be found in a homemade bowl of this soup. Here in Connecticut, restaurants are challenged every year to have their variations of this classic dish awarded the title of best chowda in the region!

The New England Chowdafest is an annual cook off of more than 40 chefs who come to claim the title of champion chowda maker. We have put together a sampling of some of the restaurants that have competed in the past and are considered among the finest out there. Let’s take a look at the Connecticut chowda trail!
