Who doesn’t want warm soup on a cold and windy Vancouver day. We all know how the weather is like here… unpredictable and unreliable. (Can’t even trust the weather network app)
But remember the app I told you guys about last week?
You even get coupons! I did not even know I could get $1 off if I showed the app to Crab Park Chowdery. (They were having a promotion last week, so check before you go)
They have an actual location at:
221 Abbott St, Vancouver, BC V6B 2K8
but they also have a food truck around central downtown. Their truck looks like a little cabin to give off that extra homey feel. I decided to try the two clam chowders and their classic grilled cheese.
FIRST UP: GRILLED CHEESE
Grilled Cheese – $8
No add ons just their classic grilled cheese, but look at that! Nice and crispy + VERY fresh off the grill (almost burnt my finger trying to do a cheese pull photo)
Aesthetics: 3/5 – just because I took it as take out * I assure you eating in at the main location is a 5/5 aesthetic
Taste: 5/5 – did I mentioned that I love fried chicken…well, cheese might be the only thing above fried chicken…
NEXT UP: THE CLAM CHOWDER
New England Clam Chowder (Red) $6
I am usually not a fan of red/tomato based soups or sauces but this one was not bad. It had a mild kick of spice in it and was very flavourful. This one worked really well with the grilled cheese. Dipping in the grilled cheese in this soup was a perfect balance.
Taste: 3/5 – personal preference of disliking tomato / tangy based soups
Manhattan Clam Chowder (White) $6
This one is usually my all time favourite. It’s a classic and it has a hearty feeling to it. The chowder was thick and had potatoes and sausages inside. Honestly couldn’t stop reaching my spoon into it…
Aesthetics: 3/5 – again only because I took it togo, the bread bowls definitely look 5/5
Taste: 4.5/5 – so heart-warming
- You can also get both chowders in a bread bowl for $10 each!
