San Francisco bites
Posted by: HoboSylvain | 2013-09-04 22:20:19 | San Francisco, California, United States

San Francisco isn't known for any particular dish or cuisine. Of course, you'll find tons of fresh seafood all over, but since it's also a big international city you'll also find restaurants from all over the world. However, there are three things you have to eat when you're here. The first one is crab, any style. Crab is one of the symbol of the city and you can easily see it on the huge Fisherman's Wharf sign. Then, right next to that Wharf, there's a famous baker with its sourdough bread. Not to far from there, there's another icon of the city... a fine chocolate maker.

Above you see I killed two birds with a single stone... having a crab salad in a sourdough roll. I enjoyed that right next to the water... best place to have seafood. All the food stalls in the Wharf proudly display a pile of crabs kept in ice, to show you their freshness. The sandwich was very delicious. Even if I'm not a fan of sourdough bread, it was a nice complement to that crab.

Only for your benefit, I went out to the chocolate factory. I had a few of their famous squares and I bought some chocolate-covered almonds. No, I didn't get the 5 lbs chocolate slab you see below ($60)... but I know many of your would like that. :-) I'm not a big connoisseur in chocolate, but I know these are good... and they've been making them for almost 100 years now.
