OK. For some of us transplants that grew up in New England, we're used to big heaping plates of fried clams. Not a cute plate of fried littlenecks, but fried 'steamer' clams, and a big heapin' plate of them, WITH BELLYS.
My two fried clams experiences involved an episode where frozen strips where passed on to me, and another involved a plate of FIVE fried littlenecks. Anybody know what I'm talkin' about? I miss this serious comfort food of my youth, can't seem to be able to find them anywhere, not Mermaid, not Pearl, not G.C. Oyster Bar ... please help!!
