Fried Clams et al- mostly North Shore

Fusilli | Jun 27, 2001 01:18 PM

Ive always liked the Clam Box in Ipswich. Had them again. They offer native and strip. had native. i still think they have the best raw material ove ever had in fried clams, not rubbery, etc. but their batter is not the greatest.

Farnham's in Essex had good clams, more rubbery perhaps, but a superior batter. Maybe one of the best. And the lobster rolls looked tasty too. And i like sitting on the edge of the marsh, chowing down.

The cupboard in Gloucester didnt have a veyr good batter...didnt care for it...

Tried that clam shack in Hull near pemberton terminal where the long wharf ferry goes. its a "snack bar" decent batter, disgusting clams that day.

The heavy rain that hit the area that week wiped clams out of a few places for a day or two...
