Michael's Seafood Restaurant has the best seafood chowder in the world. And that's the truth!
Recently, the Carolina Beach eatery won the 30th annual Knorr Great Chowder Cook-off in Rhode Island! IT IS AN INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION! The owner, Michael McGowan entered the seafood category for the third year in a row... and won... for the third year in a row.
The chowder is so darn good that the competition folks told Michael to stop entering the seafood category. But, they did it with a smile and put Michael's Restaurant into the competition's Hall of Fame.
By the way, an estimated 30,000 people voted for Michael's chowder to make it a winner. And the little factoid I like the best? Mr. McGowan doesn't have a sense of smell. He relies on his hands for texture and his trusted recipe keepers to make sure the chowder is up to par.
By the way, I had such a wonderful time meeting people and taking pictures! It was such a great crowd.
