It might seem like a no-brainer to Bay Staters that chowdah would be named Massachusetts’ most famous dish, but surprisingly, not everyone has had a bowl of the good stuff. Recently, Insider named New England style clam chowder the most famous dish for the Bay State, and we couldn’t agree more. There are a few different kinds of clam chowder out there, but New England or Boston style is obviously the best. We’d argue that if you haven’t ever tried true New England clam chowder, that you probably can’t call yourself a Bay Stater. Don’t fret, there’s still time to become enlightened and find the best chowdah in Massachusetts.
