Boudin's Bakery, Food Review | travel, lifestyle

by - October 19, 2014

Another steal from my 'Top 5 Things in SF' post, but Boudins deserves it's own post to shine. This San Francisco staple is everything you could want it to be and more. San Francisco is so famed for it's sourdough I thought it actually originated from the Bay, however that's not true, although it is the most famous area of the U.S to make it.

Downstairs you can see where they make the bread, buy all the unique shapes and sizes or just have a coffee or more informal meal, it's a really fun space completely centred around sourdough.

Upstairs however is my favourite part, it's a lot quieter and is an 'actual' restaurant rather than the more casual feel downstairs. It's the bay, so views are a must and the glass wall framing the boats and views beyond are a huge plus point to this place. Realistically though, what draws people to Boudins id the world famous Clam Chowder in Sourdough Bread Bowl.

We did also have Calamari this time, because it is one of my favourite ways to enjoy some seafood whilst I'm on my travels.

For the Clam Chowder, this is the small and if you're going for lunch this is more than enough, as to live up to the Boudins experience you are also given unlimited sourdough on tap. It lives up to everything you could want it to be, especially if you have just enjoyed a breezy boat ride across the Bay. Personally, I think even if you think you won't like it, give it a go, it really is a San Franciscan right of passage.

Until next time,
