Friday Food Porn: Clams Casino

Posted on July 20, 2012 by Aun

Clams Casino, Grand Hyatt Steakhouse

I love a good Clams Casino. It’s a lovely retro dish that I happen to adore but is quite hard to find these days. If you’ve never had a really good version, with fresh, plump, sweet clams and topped with parmesan, bacon (hey, who doesn’t love bacon?), oregano, parsley, bell peppers, shallots, and garlic, you don’t know what you’re missing!

I had the version pictured above at the very swanky Grand Hyatt Steakhouse in Hong Kong. Gorgeously prepared. These were addictively delicious. Baked for just long enough that the top was crusty and crunchy but the clam was still full of juicy flavour. A simply stunning rendition of an old classic.

    It’s like a party in every shell! Any idea how the dish came to be named “clams casino”?

    Being a dedicated seafood lover, I am really surprised I have never heard of that, but it sounds incredible.

    I too am going to need closure on why it’s called Clams Casino (which is a fantastic name!).
