When I was growing up in the Willamette Valley of Oregon, our family made at least one trip out to the beach every summer. We would take coolers of food to save money, but dinner before heading home was always at Mo's. I have had clam chowder all over the country, but nothing says seaside dining like Mo's.
Mo's has six locations on the Oregon Coast, and all are busy continuously. Since it played such an important part in my childhood, I decided to take the kids to try the chowder and have a great view of the sunset over the Pacific.
We all had chowder, and it was as good as ever. The consistency of a recipe that has not changed since 1946 means you have no surprises when you order the chowder at Mo's, regardless of the landmark location you visit.
I ordered the same thing I have ordered every time I visit since I was a teen, the Chowder Cannon Ball. A large fresh loaf of sourdough bread is hollowed out and filled with Mo's trademark and award winning chowder, and the top is buttered and served on the side. It comes to the table with a knife to cut into the bowl after the chowder is gone, and trust me, you will want to cut into the amazing goodness that is that bread that has soaked in the creamy buttery goodness that is Mo's Clam Chowder.
Mo's also features an extensive menu of fresh Oregon caught seafood, including seaside favorites such as clam strips along side fresh Salmon filets. If you like seafood in an old-time seaside local, Mo's is the place to be.
