Help! Custard-filled Bambolini in SF?

KS1 | Oct 9, 2009 11:03 PM

I Preferiti di Boriana in the Ferry Building used to have this wonderful bombolini. Light, airy, and filled with creamy custard. Sadly, for the last couple of months, they have not had the bombolini.

My wife and I recently visited the Ferry Building, and we eagerly ran over to I Preferiti di Boriana. Hazaaa! Bombolini are back! Except we were informed that they had been "improved." The new version was dense, tough, and underseasoned, with an odd lemony waxy curd inside in lieu of that sublime thick smooth, creme anglaise-type custard they used to contain. Sad.

Does anyone have any recommendations for custard-filled bambolini in San Francisco? Thanks!
