Smoked chowder – AQ Restaurant

Smoked chowder - AQ Restaurant
Bay scallops, cardoons and “old bay”. $16
AQ Restaurant, San Francisco CA

This is the only thing that I distinctly remembered and enjoyed from my meal at AQ, and that’s pretty sad for such a hyped restaurant. It had a great smoky flavor and I loved the thick texture of the cream chowder portion contrasted with the liquid clear broth. I had never had “chowder” presented this way before so it was exciting and delicious. But one dish from an entire meal can’t save a disappointing overall experience.
