The Other San Francisco Treat

No, I’m not talking about Rice-A-Roni. I mean, that would be the San Francisco treat, right? *wink*

I’m talking about…



Sourdough, baby. Oh yesssss.

I had several things I wanted to do, see, and eat in San Francisco:

  • Alcatraz
  • The Ferry Building
  • Millennium
  • Greens
  • Yogen Fruz
  • Chinatown
  • Sausalito
  • Sourdough

I managed to knock one right out of the way the first day, another with my bloggie friends (and the help of a kind GM and gracious chef), a major one in hundreds of photos and then sorta-did one more on Saturday.

And while there are still many items on my list left to be scratched off (Foodbuzz 2011 may-haps?), thanks to the magic of the airport tourist trap shops, I was able to check one last item off my list…the day after my trip no less.

That’s right…I found this beautiful loaf of sourdough bread from, what I hear is one of the best in town for sourdough, Boudin Sourdough.


Of course you know how me and hubby roll – a fried cage free egg + 2 slices of fresh sourdough toasted with a dab of real butter.


I was like a kid diving into a new present Monday morning. A very sleepy-from-my-red-eye-and-only-1-hour-of-sleep-and-jet-lag kid, but a happy one nonetheless. The sour dough was crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside, and had that perfect hint of tangy flavor.

This was wonderful, but next time I do sourdough, I’m hoping to get one of those big bowls of soup from Fisherman’s Wharf! And perhaps I’ll grab one of those churros before heading over to see the sea lions sun-bathing!

  1. YUMMMMMMMM! That breakfast looks amazing!!!

    San Fran is the one of those cities I know I would ADORE, yet I still haven’t been!! Have a couple friends that work at Google there though, so hopefully SOON.

  2. I was there last week and most of this week as well! Of course I had to try Boudin–it was so good!

    I also went to Cheesecake Factory one night and the Boudin sourdough FAR surpassed Cheesecake’s sourdough! 🙂

  3. Oh Boudin is the best of the best of the best. Walking by their main restaurant/bakery by the wharf is incredible because of that rich sourdough smell.

    Yummy looking breakfast!
