New love for razor/bamboo clams while working in Hong Kong.Love the simple,steamed with garlic and cilantro prep.Looking for the long thin bamboo shaped,not the oval shaped clams,also called razor,available in the Pacific Northwest.Thanks

I have seen razor clams for sale at Tokyo Fish Market on San Pablo. Not sure if they have it all the time, so probably should call first.
Coqueta serves a trio of them for $14. They keep it simple by grilling them with lemon and scallions.
It didn't have the signature crunch that a live clam straight from market would have, but it was still a good prep.
Swan's can occasionally get them, but sometimes the minimum order is about 50 lbs. I was able to get a reasonable small order at San Francisco Fish Company in the Ferry Building about a month ago I think.
