San Francisco is one of the country’s best food cities offering a wide range of eating options – world-class restaurants, cafes, bistros, bakeries and even food trucks. Known for its multi-cuisine and multi-cultural food scene, the city offers a spectacular culinary experience . However, a visit to San Francisco is incomplete without savoring its Sourdough bread bowl filled with delicious Clam Chowder – San Francisco’s quintessential culinary delight.
One of the best spots to taste the authentic flavor of this irresistible delight is at Boudin Bakery, located in the heart of Fisherman’s Wharf. Regarded as one of the oldest continuously running businesses in San Francisco, it has been baking tangy sourdough French-style bread since the Gold Rush days and using the same recipe and original yeast mother dough since 1849.
This flagship store of Boudin Bakery is modern and well laid out, where visitors can watch the bakers at work and witness the entire process from start to end through a 30-foot all glass demonstration window. They can also take a tour of the onsite museum and learn about the history of Boudin with various exhibits that depicts its journey which is closely linked with the growth and development of San Francisco; purchase gourmet gifts available in the in-house marketplace.
And of course! Enjoy San Francisco’s classic local flavors and amazing seafood selecting from the extensive menu at the Boudin Bakery & Cafe or relax with a drink and gourmet food at the full-service restaurant – Bistro Boudin.
The place makes for a complete shopping, dining, and edutainment experience and is one of the must-dos when in San Francisco.
