Chowder in FL in the summer? Sat, 07/5/08 8:56 AM (permalink)
We live on the east coast of central FL, where virtually every restaurant has some sort of Chowder on their menu year-round. I'm not talking about just the seafood places, who usually 2 or 3 styles on the menu. Bar-pubs & better restaurants also follow this trend. I'm sorry, but when it's 90+ degreess outside, a steaming bowl of chowder just doesn't sound all that appetizing, even if the a/c is cranked to max. I've asked around & the only response is that with all the fishing in the area, it's a tradition.

Right now, a cold bowl of gazpacho or potato-leek (vichyssoie just doesn't sound Roadfood) would be great, but only a few places risk a cold soup on the menu. Anyone else have a similar gripe in their hot weather climate?
