Paris sucks...

...because after traipsing around Paris for a week sampling many baguettes and breads from countless cafes, restaurants, and boulangers, I've come to find that there is no good baguette to be found in the SF Bay Area now. Yes, I know about Acme. I used to think Acme was great too. Now, it's just pretty good.

One local bakery has a great looking and textured crust, but the crumb will be very very airy and light and not much flavor. Another has a thick and soft crust, dense crumb, but good flavor. Another has a soft crust, and soft crumb of the almost-par-baked style which seems popular. *sigh* Acme will have to do...
