3 Places to Get Geoduck: Voted the #1 Grossest Food in WA State

Have you ever tried geoduck? I haven’t. I must admit, I don’t even know wtf geoduck even is. It sounds like it’s a gooey duck egg, and I already don’t like my chicken eggs sunny-side up! Anyway, geoduck was voted as the #1 top grossest food in Washington state.


Previously, we told you that geoduck was voted as the #1 grossest food in Washington. And I'm here to tell you that it's still considered that to this today.


I’ve been calling it, “GEE-O-Duck”. My friends call me bougie but apparently, I am not as cultured as I thought. It is pronounced, “GOOEY-Duck.”

Is geoduck a clam? Is it an oyster? Is it an ooey-gooey duck egg? Well, it is a CLAM. It loves to live its best clammy life out in the Pacific Coastal areas of Washington, Oregon, California, and Alaska. Some chefs like to chop up it’s meat and put it in ceviche, some like to deep-fry it, and others even serve it raw in sushi. Others like to use geoduck in chowder, sashimi, and stir-fry recipes. The list goes on.
