So today after my really late night and resulting late sleep in I was hungry and was on the search for clam chowder. I headed north instead of south (first mistake). I stopped at Loco's Loco's (even though I know they don't have clam chowder) to say hi to people. It started to pour so I stayed a little longer but didn't eat because I really wanted clam chowder. They don't have it. After visiting my beloved Doris for quite awhile, I headed out in search of clam chowder. Went to El Fish Market (it's their signature dish after all) and they didn't have it - again! They have not had it the entire time I've been here. So left and hit a few other spots - no clam chowder.
I ended up stopping at Baja Style. I've never eaten there before but an amazing waitress - Jessica - drew me in and made me want to stay. I ended up having an amazing dish the Molcajete Rockefeller which is a seafood dish, not like a Moljacete at all but with shrimp, scallops, fish, calamari in a rich creamy sauce with cheese. It was delicious! Before I knew it Gord showed up and we enjoyed happy hour. And then Gary arrived as well. What a great way to spend a rainy day!
I had to leave though cuz I had dinner plans with other friends for Valentine's Day so off I went back home to clean up, change and head out.
Oh yeah, back to my clam chowder fairy. So when I arrived back home - on my doorstep was my beloved FISH clam chowder. It was so serendipitous and perfect. Didn't know at that time who my "fairy" was but had my suspicions. Of course, I later found out it was my dear Londa. She knows I get home late, often without eating, and knowing there is nothing in my fridge and I'm hungry and she knows I love that chowder - she's a dear! Good call - cuz I got home tonight ( a few hours earlier than last night) but still super hungry so I had a great late night snack. Thanks my dear friend!
