The Best Soup in Every State
Washington: Pike Place Chowder, Seattle
Pike Place Market is a Seattle institution, and one of its most popular eateries is Pike Place Chowder, which was opened by Larry Mellum in 2003. Mellum sources all of his ingredients from the market itself, and the best showcase of the local bounty is in his seafood bisque, a creamy tomato-based broth that’s loaded with Pacific cod, Northwest salmon, Oregon bay shrimp, and a little fresh basil. It’s the Northwest in a bowl.
