are a treat that I have only enjoyed on the west coast, and mostly in Seattle. They are usually reasonably priced and very tasty. What can you tell this east coast guy about them?

    i know that when i moved from Mass. to Calif, for a long time I thought i would have to go back home to visit if i wanted clams with FLAVOR, instead of rubber bands---UNTIL--i discovered razor clams--another transplant turned me on to them as "fried clams ala Pacific Northwest"---he would fry them in small batches in wok set up to do tempura--with a beer batter--Red Tail Ale actually---they were great! not quite ipswich--but to a stranded transplant!!! We ate them in tacos---on hand formed corn tortilla's with a bit of creamy slaw and plenty of hot sauce---or---Po' Boy style-much like NO oyster po'boys only with sour dough bread-or in a big pile with tarter and lemon!!! They also make good chowder glams.
