Scenes From a Vacation: The Clam Box

While hanging out in the Boston area last week, the Ginger Ninja’s mom took us to The Clam Box in Ipswitch. The building was built to look just like a clam box, so I couldn’t resist taking photos…

The food at the Clam Box is classic New England fried seafood: shrimp, scallops, fish and of course, clams. You can eat in their dining room or on the picnic tables outside. You probably shouldn’t eat this stuff — it’s all deep fried — every day, but as a special treat, it’s far better road food than your typical fast food joint.

Here’s what I had for dinner: the whole fried clams platter, with a clam cake on the side…

If you ever pass through Ipswich, make sure you pass by the Clam Box.
