Food Friday: Fisherman's Wharf

Photobucket

A couple weekends back, my lovebug and I spent a beautiful afternoon playing tourists around Fisherman's Wharf. Most San Franciscans shy away from the tourist magnets, but since we've been on a quest to re-explore each and every neighborhood around town, this was one we couldn't (and wouldn't) skip out on.

The best part about the wharf, in my humble opinion, is the fresh seafood. As I've said before, seafood is something I just can't live without. Crab, shrimp, fish, lobster, oysters, clams, calamari - I will eat it all! And, because I love it all, it's sometimes hard for me to choose where to start. Luckily for me, you really can't go wrong with whatever place you pick along the pier. The same, however, cannot be said about desserts around the wharf. Learn from my mistake and don't fall into any of the tourist traps...like Ghiradelli. UGH. Can I just take a moment to say that paying $20 for two sundaes is not worth it when your ice cream is subpar, at best? The mister got the "Warm Brownie Sundae," and I got the so-called "World Famous Hot Fudge Sundae." First of all, they forgot to put a cherry on the top of my sundae, and I'm sorry, but the cherry is practically the best part for me. (Don't be fooled, I borrowed the boy's cherry from his sundae just so my sundae could look pretty too.) Half my sundae was whipped cream, even though they claimed the world famous was a two-scooper. And, I opted for the waffle cone bowl, because I love cones, and the inside of my whole cone was dipped in fudge. TOO MUCH FUDGE. If you're going to drench my sundae in chocolate fudge syrup, is it really necessary to dip your cone in fudge too? And if so, can a girl get a warning? I love chocolate, but sometimes too much is too much. Anyways, the thought of sitting down on a sunny day and eating ice cream with your lovebug seems good in theory, but if the ice cream shop fails to live up to its word, then that definitely throws a wrench in plans. (This reminds me of my NYC Serendipity experience. Note to self: Stop giving in to tourist traps.) Silver lining? While the dessert might have been a waste, any day spent with my favorite person certainly is not.

  3. OMG I can't believe they forgot the cherry! I agree, that's what does it for me too! I've been dying to go back one weekend to the wharf, but yeah, sometimes it's such a tourist trap.. But if this nice weather holds up, I may have to stop by for a sundae :)

  10. I love that SF people don't go to pier anymore, that means I don't have to worry about running into people I know and I get to enjoy my lunch/dinner lol!

    I actually love Ghiradelli! I love their walnut fudge!
