Now that the weather is starting to improve, minus the rain, I want to take my mom out for some fried clams. I was reading some reviews here and it seems like the Clam Shack, Farhnams, and Agawam Cafe keep popping up. Any preferences? She likes the big bellied clams. I will probably stick to fried haddock, scallops, or maybe calamari myself. I'd also like to get a good cup of clam or fish chowder. Other recomendations south of the city are welcome too. Thanks.
