I am from the East Coast and the one thing that doesn’t exist on the West Coast is really good fried clams with the bellies. I have searched and searched, but nothing comes even close to East Coast fried clams. Therefore, whenever I go back to Boston, I indulge myself and have at least 4 lunch or dinners of fried clams. If they serve fries, onion rings, cole slaw, rolls with the clams, I just ignore them – just the clams please. So in order of preference:
