Another great food-related discovery in San Francisco was Sally’s Famous Fishwich. It’s a food stand located in Fisherman’s Wharf that serves the most humongous fish sandwiches I’ve ever seen! The cashier starts out by asking you what you want. If you say the Fishwich, the guy behind the food counter whips out a huge piece of bread and a gigantic fish fillet. He puts the fillet on the grill, picks up literally a tub-full of yummy peppered lettuce with Italian dressing, and slathers a generous amount over the bread. He then plops the fillet on the lettuce, wraps up the sandwich, and sends you on your way. The service is fairly fast and the gargantuan sandwich can feed about three people for only $8.

Another Fisherman’s Wharf staple is Boudin Bakery, which claims to have the best clam chowder on sourdough and is famous for baking bread in the cutest shapes possible. The bakery has two floors with a cafeteria-style eatery and a Pete’s Coffee stand on the first floor, and a more expensive gourmet restaurant on the second floor. You can basically get all the essentials on the first floor so my friends and I saw no need to check out the gourmet place.
