Very interesting. I remember hearing about these clams once, but I didn't realize there were so many ways to fix them.

And I've heard of "geoduck" - a friend has the sig line of "Geoduck for Washington State Animal!" - but I never realized it was a clam!

Time for a road trip!

i love razor clams.... there is a store near me that almost always has them

I grew up in the Toledo suburbs, eating very standard American chain-restaurant food, and I'm thrilled to hear about an exceptional restaurant in the area I can try when I visit! Thanks Kitchen Chick!

Gooey-Duck is popular in the Coastal area of Washington State. Grind up the neck to the consistency of hamburger. Mix with equal parts crushed saltine crackers and an egg or two. Make patties and saute in olive oil and butter. Gently Saute the steaks lightly in olive oil and butter. Wonderful!

I would like to know to cook a king clam. THANK YOU Steve

Steve, I've never cooked a clam myself. The best thing I can recommend is to talk to your fishmonger about cooking clams (assuming your local fishmonger is a good cook) and do a little online recipe research to find something that appeals to you and will work with king clams.

I saw razor clams being sold at an Asian market on Washtenaw near my house one day. I was afraid to buy it not knowing it was clams and do not trust it. Some were broken and some was "feeling" its surrounding. Now I know what it is, I probably will buy some and make clam linguini or clam chowder or what ever fit my mood at that time.

I commute to Toledo and I have been largely unimpressed with the restaurants. This gives me hope. I look forward to trying it out.

Is Wei Wei noodles open or are they closed for ever. I have $150 of gift certificate i need to spend there.

I don't know -- I certainly hope they reopen, because we (and my parents) miss them. We'll post an update here when we know more.

wei wei noodles is back in business! :)

YES!!!!!!! Glad to hear it!

I have been a regular at Wei Wei since they first opened, and I have to say it is one of my favorite places in Toledo to eat. Prices are great, and the service is wonderful too! I haven't had the Geoduck yet, but thier soups are a staple in my diet ;)

I love eating gooey ducks. My mother loves to make it with rice, tastes great! Though I do think you have to get used to the texture.

Geoducks are prized foods in food markets worldwide and are a highly valued fishery for the state (Puget Sound) , estimated at $40 million annually.

Check out geoduck for info.

I had some razor clams. those were awesome. this is the place to be. the food is awesome! and anyone who goes there needs to have some bubble tea! its the best!

No doubt, Wei Wei is the best Chinese restaurant in Toledo

Raymond, did you hear that they just had a kitchen fire? http://toledoblade.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20080329/NEWS07/586009578 I hope they will be able to re-open, and soon!

Mmmmm...... geoduck. Just found this gem for Geoduck Recipes. Versatile little critters!

Wei Wei is now open again!!! We went there for New Year's Eve dinner and they had been open about 10 days. Great to see the joyous reunions as their "regulars" from the past came in - as we did after driving by and seeing the long hoped-for "Now Open" sign. No razor clams or geoduck at that time (they are still arranging for suppliers etc,) but they did have one of our all-time favorites - oyster hot pot! All the dishes we had were excellent! Hurray!
