A Touristy Cup of Clam Chowder
It really couldn't get more touristy than this. Smack in the middle of Cannery Row in Monterey today, there were a bunch of water-facing restaurants giving out samples of clam chowder, and I couldn't resist. So I went into the Fish Hopper (700 Cannery Row, 831-372-8543) and grabbed a quick bowl to go eat out on the benches. It was a tad unnecessarily salty and rich, but I suppose that was needed to hook people when giving out little samples out on the street. I should have grabbed some of those oyster cracker things or something at least.
