Crab Park Chowdery is located in Gastown and they serve up chowders and different soups in a cup or a bread bowl. A little taste of Seattle up in Vancouver.
I came here with M after work to give some of their items a try.
The shop is very narrow and can’t fit too many people here. Really large groups wouldn’t fit here, but groups of 2 or 4, would fit so perfectly.
New England Clam Chowder
The most popular item here is the New England Clam Chowder. Hands down. There are lots of clams and ingredients packed inside. M loved every bite of it to go with the sourdough bowl.
Eat it with a spoon or dunk the bread from the top into the chowder.
The smokey tomato soup was a bit thicker, but there is a layer of cheese between the bowl and the soup then topped with green onions.
It was a good smokey tomato soup, but the acidity of the soup with the sour dough wasn’t the optimal combination. This bowl was like a grilled cheese sandwich with tomato soup.
There are a bunch of hot sauces at each table to spice up your soup or chowder.
Overall, a few of the soups are pretty solid. We also taste tested some other soups as well. They also have some chowders of the day that aren’t always on the menu.
A few of my favourites are:
- New England Clam Chowder
- Loaded Baked Potato Soup
- Mushroom Soup
