Take-out dinner from Fitts.
Last Friday, I was hoping to find a quick bite for dinner on my way home from an errand. Driving down 12th St. in south Salem, I decided to stop at Fitts Seafood market.
Fitts offers clam chowder to-go on Fridays until 6 PM. They are usually sold out by mid-afternoon, so I was lucky to get some. I bought 3 pints at $4.00 each, with saltine crackers included. After all, what would clam chowder be without crackers?
I enjoyed the clam chowder in the comfort of my own home with two friends.
The chowder was delicious. Slightly chewy pieces of chopped clam were complimented by big chunks of potato and little bits of bacon. The texture of the soup was a bit grainy, but still satisfyingly creamy. The flavor was balanced and rich.
My only complaint: I'd like to see clam chowder available everyday! There may not be demand for it right now. But after tasting it for yourself, there may be soon.
