Food Tour of San Francisco : a tourist point of view

Me and hubby were in SF taking a friend from out of town. We did the usual. First stop Fisherman's Wharf. We avoided sit-down restaurants. We just wanted to snack along the way.

First : chilli dog. This one turned out to be so so only. A bit on the salty side and more beans than anything else. Not even any heat at all.
Location : one of the stalls toward the back of Pier 39

Second : clam chowder. Yeah..this is a must try if one visits Pier 39. We got one on the bread bowl and a cup. The bread was a good additional to the soup. Me and hubby shared the 'bowl cover' and we got pretty full from it. The chowder was surprisingly rich, creamy and clammy. Just thinking about it made me want to go back.
Location : Look for the red stalls just in front of Pier 39. There were two of them. I think they were chain stores brand or something.

Last : custard tart. If you're in China Town. Make time to stop by this tiny bakery shop on Grant Ave to check out their custard tart. The best in town. Always fresh out of the oven. The wait time could be around 20 minutes but believe me it's worth every bite of it.
