The Third Annual Clam Chowder Cook-Off at the Redondo Beach Pier was the place to be this past Saturday. For $7, attendees received “Tasting Kits” that included five – 2 ounce clam chowder taste tickets and a ticket to vote for a favorite to win the People’s Choice award. The winners of the event were Alpine Village for Best Clam Chowder, Professional Division/Team Spirit Award and Roy Miyashiro for the Individual Division.

Creamy clam chowder came from Quality Seafood. Paired with bread, the chowder definitely hit the spot.

In addition to handing out tasty samples of clam chowder, Tony’s on the Pier handed out fliers for discounts at their restaurant.

Before giving us a sample of his spicy, delicious recipe, Salome Ponce asked, ” Are you ready to taste the best clam chowder?” (Pictured below).

Among all the vendors, our favorite clam chowder came from Patrick Molloys. Bold flavors made us come back for seconds and as a result, we felt they proudly earned our yellow ticket stub.

The fun-filled event lasted from 1pm – 4pm where festival goers tasted various types of Clam Chowder at a super affordable price. Throughout the event, vendors cheered when they received a yellow ticket, which meant they were voted for best chowder of the day. The event is annual and we recommend checking out the next one. You won’t be disappointed!
