While clam strips are often a staple on the menu of seafood restaurants across the country, normally foodies have to travel to New England to find whole belly clams on the menu. A staple of coastal areas like Ipswich, Massachusetts, whole belly clams use the whole interior of steamer clams, while clam strips use sliced portions of hard-shell clams. For this special weekend, Sea Breeze will offer whole belly clams two different ways:
New England Clam Roll -- $16.99
Whole Belly Fried Clam Plate -- $24.99
Fishmonger Rick Oruch scheduled the weekend in response to customer interest. “We have a strong customer base of seafood lovers originally from New England who have since moved to North Texas,” notes Oruch. “While they often come in to enjoy our clam chowder or other New England specialties, whole belly clams are very popular, and are not available anywhere else in the region.”
