it’s heavy it’s ten pounds of seafood well fries too but told them whatever we don’t need the staff is gonna get and the clowns yes it’s kind of sad and small it’s minuscule that’s a normal plate of food luckily we have some reinforcements to help us eat alex nice to meet you ready for this i am so looking forward to this i didn’t eat for the last 10 hours in preparation fried seafood in monumental proportions but we’re going to start with what we’ve already tried some of the fried clams so let’s start with the steamed the steamers boom dip in there steamers and they call them steamers you pull off that little membrane from the top there you squeeze it and it usually should just slide off like that perfect then you’ve got that takes off the kind of sandy area of the neck then you got the neck dipping into the clam juice to get off any excess sand into the butter oh wow yeah that’s just a perfect clam here oh this one’s huge kind of gotta wiggle it up off a little and then it just really slides off nicely [Music] oh that one had a big belly oh that’s the belly right when you get that kind of oh the belly’s incredible it is a little bit of a different texture that’s not only did you have strips where they cut off the belly it’s like what’s that about yeah belly is where it’s at the fried seafood the tartar sauce which is the standard sauce that they serve with the fried clams and then the cocktail sauce which is a little lighter and more of a refreshing sauce i think there’s at least a few pounds of fish below there hidden treasure we’re gonna have to dig for some things i think you have to eat your way through to get to it you just pick up a fistful and see what you get it’s kinda weird okay i’m just grabbing whatever i get i think i got strips possibly some shrimp oh [Music] it’s so good okay these are for sure the best fried clams i’ve ever had anywhere ever in my life i’ve tunneled into the platter tunneled in looking for the face what did you discover no the fish was like these huge strips oh my god [Music] this is like a lazy susan but the whole thing is it’s one revolvable thing look at that shrimp i’m gonna try a onion ring this is a fresh pina colada on the house for you guys to try yeah a couple of straws here try an onion ring [Applause] oh wow that’s one of the crispiest onions you’ll ever have it’s so crispy onion just melts in your mouth so good no the fish were neatly placed over the fries on one side i remember yeah it’s like having a treasure map wait or is it could it be oh this one is fish i see it i see it i see here’s the fish here’s the fish i found it i found it these are all strips uh there we go oh oh look at that the juicy fish underneath it underneath that batter that deep friedness [Music] should i set a fellow fish on top of this mountain oh my god oh look at that fish yeah it’s so tender look at that it’s just pure pure white meat flesh fish deep fried and flaky i’m gonna dip into the tartar into the cocktail sauce did you have it oh the cocktail sauce with that horseradish in it it’s so good you did a mix all the fish is amazing it’s so flaky and just kind of completely dissolves in your mouth fish is great so good here there’s another filet coming up [Music] oh we haven’t really tried a scallop either right have you found have it has anyone has anyone located a scallop yet there’s some over here you look like two got a twist oh yeah it says in the northeast on the northwest of the platter the supply of of um oh yeah there’s a hole there’s a whole two pounds of scallops below right here i’m gonna dip that into the i love this cocktail sauce so fresh and refreshing yeah cheers welcome to the club [Music] silky just melts in your mouth i love it with that cocktail sauce happy fourth of july to us right silky we’ll be here until the fourth of july eating this platter ways to go oh it’s so good and i think we still have the shrimp to try oh yeah which direction are the shrimp let’s try a giant one over here here’s some shrimp i’m definitely a cocktail sauce kind of guy love it i think it just balances out the friedness so well [Music] the mountain the mountain all the firmness the muscularity the oh the freshness of everything the friedness is this among the largest piles of deep friedness that you’ve ever seen it’s among the largest piles of anything you cannot send this picture to your doctors yeah i do think after trying everything yeah what do you think what do you think it’s the clam it is the clam but that is what oh what are the fish the whole belly clam too yeah yeah the whole belly clam that is the fish is awesome too though really french fries i haven’t tried the french fries yet you can just taste there’s such a depth of flavor [Music] remarkably the fries which have been completely submerged for the last 30 minutes are still crispy like they should be soggy withered up but they’re crispy and fresh oh there they are they’re in the tunnel another thing you can do is just reach your fingers in and get whatever you grab for the combination bite your crispy deep fried joy [Music] i love it just really flakes up out of your mouth well the fish is incredible i think the clams are the best followed by a close second by the fish one more thing that i wanted to say is that chubby woodman he in 1916 so he was selling fried potato chips fresh potato chips and it was actually a joke that one of his friends said you got you should deep fry the the clams and all the customers thought oh that’s a horrible idea but it was actually a joke they thought it would be humorous humorous to fry some clams so chubby eventually did it figured out that he stumbled into a great idea they tried it they loved it and it’s just been a sensation ever since 1916. and everyone in new england has copied him but he invented these fried clams chubby still family owned fourth generation the definition of a culinary institution of massachusetts the world’s greatest fried clams still in the place that they have originated where they were invented first they still do them the best is there an argument to that there’s not even the best the best and you’re alex is from massachusetts is there an argument to still hold up it still holds up nobody has able to been take taken down the woodman’s fried clams how did it feel but it still holds up oh man you start to get the deep fried sweats oh my god yes [Music] so of course we the three of us well the four of us didn’t finish that entire giganormous fisherman’s platter but jeffrey went downstairs stairs we shared it with all of the staff and they happily are eating so first of all when they came in they applauded at how well we did that’s awesome and then they were like so you’re taking it with you and they’re gonna know we’re leaving it off even like oh well big thank you to the staff to the management to the everyone at woodman’s so nice so friendly legendary place [Applause] [Music] to continue this food tour just a little bit we decided to drive not too far of a drive down the coast to a place called revere beach we’re just outside of boston here and we’re at a place called kelly’s [Music] [Applause] [Music] it’s another massachusetts landmark of a restaurant we’re right on the beach i mean right across the street from the beach and although they have seafood on their menu you do not come here to eat seafood hello can i get a roast beef large please and with all the sauces it’s kind of windy and pretty cold out here at the beach and while they do have all sorts of seafood on their menu from lobster rolls to oh they even have clams here too we’re we’re not eating seafood here we came directly to eat what is their classic their roast beef thank you very much okay thank you have a great day cannot wait to try this roast beef and they have some seating they don’t have any indoor seating it’s only uh you walk up to the counter you make your order but they do have some picnic tables out here on the corner right across the street from the beach oh yeah i got the whole meal combo so we got onion rings as well not that we needed anything more deep fried today that is a beautiful roast beef sandwich and i got it with the combo it came with the wind the came with onion rings and fries and then i also got it with all the toppings as well the provolone i think it’s the smoked barbecue cheese sauce almost um lettuce tomato onions in here and a thick mound of very finely sliced very thinly sliced roast beef the bun is quite sturdy topped with sesame seeds look at that sauciness of that and i’m sort of just watching behind my back all the time that i’m eating here because there’s a lot of seagulls flying overhead that look like they’re gonna swoop in at any time for a bite of your roast beef so do be careful oh yeah oh that’s amazing oh that immediately lives up to the hype the legend the roast beef oh it’s so good the beef is so tender and so lean and so many fine thin strips of it you got the crunch of the onion the that sauce i don’t know what that sauce is but it’s some kind of a smoky slightly peppery barbecue sauce with that amount of roast beef in there too that’s what makes it so good that’s a real deal roast beef sandwich and although you often think about eating seafood when you’re next to the sea when it comes to revere beach here in boston i don’t think you’d want to be eating anything else but a roast beef sandwich roast beef is the best [Music] oh cold today but i can totally say that roast beef sandwich exceeded my expectations so good the quality of the beef that sauce there was something magical about that sauce i think it was just just the perfect balance of sweet tangy smoky i think and that was also a good contrast from that mountain of deep friedness as well and thank you very much for watching this video please remember to give it a thumbs up if you enjoyed it leave a comment below i’d love to hear
