It’s the beautiful city by the bay that boasts the Golden Gate Bridge, those iconic cable cars and a resident swarm of sea lions at Pier 39.
San Francisco is more than just one of those instantly recognisable places you’re used to seeing on TV screens and movies (opening credits to Full House, anyone?).
It’s also home to some of the most inventive, utterly indulgent and totally Instagrammable foods in the world.
Fancy yourself a bit of a foodie? These are the treats you need to add to your bucket list.
S’mores at Dandelion Chocolate.
They’re the childhood campfire treat Americans know and love, but Aussies, it’s time to meet the S’more. The pimped up version at luxe chocolatier Dandelion Chocolate is made from homemade graham cracker, marshmallow and smoke-dried cocoa beans. Buy it and watch it get toasted to gooey, deliciousness right in front of your eyes.
Tacro at Vive Le Tarte
Food mash-ups can sometimes be a bit hit and miss, but anything that combines the flakey, buttery pastry of a croissant with the delicious favours of a taco is a winner with us. Introducing the Tacro – the brainchild of bakery Vive Le Tarte found in the famed Ferry Building. Try the juicy pulled pork with zingy pineapple salsa to really have your tastebuds blown.
The Rebel Within at Craftsman and Wolves
Instagram is all about the #yolkporn when it comes to breakfast foods, and ‘The Rebel Within’ doesn’t disappoint. Imagine a perfectly runny egg baked into a muffin with sausage and green onion. Those visiting on a weekday be warned: only 150 are made a day so make sure not to miss out.
Cruffins at Mr. Holmes Bakehouse
Brave the inevitable crowds congregating outside Mr. Holmes Bakehouse and you will be rewarded with the most epic sugar high known to sweet-treat lovers. Known for their cruffins, with flavours changing daily, there’s also the perfectly instagrammable backdrop to snap your cruffin against.
Clam chowder at Boudin Bakery
It’s one of the most famous eats in one of San Francisco’s most iconic spots, and foodies flock in droves to demolish the clam chowder served in its own bread bowl (carb haters need not apply) at Boudin’s Bakery. Their flagship store is found at the seaside hub of Fisherman’s Wharf, so take in the sight, sounds, and perfectly baked sourdough as you dive in.
