Alan and I spent the Fourth of July at Pismo Beach. It was a long drive there and back, but it was worth it because I finally got to eat at Splash Cafe after a failed attempt last July. Splash is famous for their clam chowder, which, I'll admit, was impressively creamy and rich, but what I really loved were their steamed clams. They came in some sort of tomato/butter/wine sauce that I couldn't stop dipping my extra bread into. We also got an order of sea scallops and chips to share, but I ate most of those since Alan's not a big scallop fan. They were well-seasoned and definitely tasty, but were overshadowed by my love connection with the clams. I need to find a recipe for that sauce ASAP.
