[San Francisco] Fisherman’s Wharf Must-Tries: Dungeness crabs and clam chowder served in sourdough bread

When in Rome, do as the Romans do … and when in Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco, California … order dungeness crabs and clam chowder served in a sourdough bread bowl.

When you’re at fisherman’s wharf, how can you not be mesmerized by the surreality of the beautiful bay and waters? As touristy as it may be, it’s difficult not to get soaked up in the whole atmosphere, which also sets you in the mood for seafood (though whether the seafood actually comes from the nearby waters is another question?).

Every eatery – from small store to big-name restaurant – capitalise on this by serving lots of seafoods. It IS seafood galore at Fisherman’s Wharf – calamari, shrimps, lobsters, oysters, crabs and clams are aplenty.

Me: O_O”

I still think I prefer non-sour bread, heh … but this is still a nice foodie experience not to be missed if you’re at Fisherman’s Wharf. The clam chowder is thick and rich =)~

Another must-try: the ubiquitous dungeness crabs – you see crabs, crabs, crabs menu, crabs logos outside restaurants, crabs, crabs, crabs at almost every store, eatery and restaurant… oh, crab, I think I left my heart in San Francisco =x

    I love the super thick clam chowder at Fisherman’s Wharf. Some people say the whole sourdough bowl and clam chowder is overrated and touristy but hey there is something about having a nice bread bowl of hot thick chowder as you walk along the pier, no? :)

    Btw, I have an award for you over at my blog :) Not sure if you’ve received it before.

    I went to SF Fisherman’s Wharf when I was 20, ages ago, thus I had no idea it’s famous for dungeness crabs. If I visit there again, will sure have some dungeness crabs and seafood. Yeah, me not a fan of sourdough bread too. :P

    I took me a while to develop a liking for sourdough. I like it served fresh and warm!
