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.

They must use a different chowder for contests because I've had their chowder (IMO it doesn't deserve to be called "Chowda") along with the half frozen lobster tail they brought to me and my wife and, it was made with that fake crab stuff. Haven't eaten there since. Been about 8 years now and I love seafood.
