USA food tour - clam chowder and tacos San Francisco

My husband and I are in USA for work, learning all we can about the tech scene.

However while here i’m of course taking the opportunity to eat my way through the USA. Throughout our time i’ll post about all the culinary delights I come across and share in true food blogger style, what to try and what to hide from.

Our USA foodie tour commenced on 9 June with a creamy, hearty, delicious clam chowder at fishermans wharf. The bread bowl was a perfectly balanced sourdough - the soft centre and crunchy exterior made this bread the a great option for dipping into the warming chowder.

This warmth was welcomed with open arms as the crisp wind came off the water and in true San Francisco style pierced my clothing.

There are a lot of clam chowder options at Fisherman’s Wharf - if you want to buy, stand and eat go for one of the smaller food vendors. They are cheaper. However because Mr Bball and I wanted to share we opted for the Chowder Hut - it was delicious, fast and easy to share. Plus, with a few local beers on tap and a range of cocktails, you can make an afternoon of it while overlooking the water.


For dinner we had to go to Garaje. The licence plates, old school posters, traffic signs, menu on the board, food served in plastic bowls Mexican icon. Recently acknowledged for their melt-in-your-mouth burgers, this place is a must for everything burgers, tacos and craft beer.

I ordered the grilled fish and guacamole taco and chicken taco, both served with fresh lime and an assortment of chilli sauces.

Served in small double stacked corn tortillas, I couldn't even hold the taco in my hand, the filling was so generous.

Smoky, slightly sweet, tangy and spicy both tacos while small packed a punch and I certainly wasn’t left hungry.

All this with a Coronado bienvenido lager - California craft beer - served on the side made our day in San Francisco complete. A bonus wasthe NBL Finals serious game, that added an extra level of energy into the entire city.



While always packed garaje is an absolute must.

Next stop New York.
