Boudin Bakery has been in business since 1849. They are known for their famous Sour Dough bread. Mrs. Louise Boudin was quiet the business woman and made the company what it is yet today. The sour dough bread is made in the shapes of teddy bears, turtles, alligators and more. They sell light and dark breads, croissants and much more. The Sour Dough bread has only four ingredients which are : mother dough, flour, salt and water. The sour dough bread is made with a mother dough which has Lactobacillus sanfrancisco bacteria in motion that gives it a unique sour dough taste that can only be produced in San Francisco.
My friend and I ate several times at Boudin Bakery which is located along Fishermans Wharf in San Francisco. I ordered the Turkey and Avocado sandwich on a croissant and Clam Chowder soup in a sour dough bread bowl. My friend had the same except she had the tomato basil soup. Our food was excellent and came to our table quickly. I ordered some hot chocolate later on and it was perfect with lots of chocolate.
The bakery is constantly very busy with people buying the various breads and ordering food to eat. I enjoyed the museum upstairs that tells about the history of Boudin over the years. I enjoyed watching their big commercial ovens and the entire operation of making the various breads. The breads only take five to twenty minutes to bake depending on the size of the loaf of bread they are baking.
Boudin Bakery has something for everyone. They have a vast menu and many gift items available. I purchased a can of clam chowder soup and drinking chocolate to take home with me and enjoy in the long winter months to come. I ate an Almond Croissant that was filled with almond paste and it was outstanding in taste and flavor. I would highly recommend going to Boudin Bakery in San Francisco, California.
