• New England Clam Chowder from Cooking for Engineers
Rhode Island Clam Chowder is another variation that we've come across in our time here. It's made with specifically quahog clams, the largest variety of clams and which usually have a distinctly briny taste. While this chowder has potatoes and onions like the New England version, it's made with a clear broth and isn't thickened with cream. Fans say that this lets you taste the true flavor of the clams.

Manhattan Clam Chowder is often derided as not being a "real" chowder, but we'd argue that it has its time and place! This soup is actually similar to Rhode Island chowder in that it is brothy instead of creamy, but Manhattan chowder adds one additional ingredient: tomatoes.
