pretty special clam chowder in Pismo

  • s
  • 3

Splash Cafe in Pismo Beach. Rarely mentioned
but worth a stop. Extra creamy and served
in buttered and toasted bread bowls.
Definitely the best clam chowder I've had
over the last decade.

But....be wary of Santa Barbara CHPs. :(

  1. Agree 100%. I had their clam chowder many years ago. Unfortunately I've not had the opportunity to go back. I find that it has become the standard to which I compare all clam chowders. Never had better, not even in San Francisco.

        Menu includes burgers, fish sandwiches, hot dogs,
        steamed clams, calamari... hmmm... didn't notice
        any lobster or crab. food is pretty cheap. eg. $5-7

        You don't have to leave the comforts of your own
        home; order the clam chowder online! (sorry
        marketing-speak took over).
