San Francisco

I've just returned from a trip to San Francisco, and I ate some really terrific bread. When folks think of bread in San Francisco, they generally think of sourdough, and probably they should. There actually is a sourdough which is truly sour and it is made by the Boudin Bakery.
This is the distinctive San Francisco sourdough, and I've never found the same flavor anywhere else.
My favorite bread is also a sourdough, but much more subtle, and that's made by the Acme Bakery. Try their Pain Au Levain. You'd find it difficult to taste anything better.
