When your family just has to have bread bowls...

iheartcooking | Jul 24, 2014 02:33 PM

My family and I (husband, two pre teen boys) are on vacation in SF for one last evening. I've taken them to hole-in-the-wall dim sum, and other great eats, and now what they really want (in addition to ghiradeli fudge sundaes) is chowder in bread bowls.

From what I read, bread bowl chowder is not authentic here, nor particularly good, and I'm ok with that. In fact, my husband works at Disneyland and the kids and I enjoy Boudin bread bowls there quite a lot!

But I want to make them happy because they have been troopers while I take them all over the city to places I recall from my childhood. I'm just hoping there's somewhere near the wharf where my boys can have their bread bowl and I can have that or something else more seafoody?

My trip to SF won't be ruined if I have to eat bad chowder from a stale sourdough bowl. I was just hoping local hounds might know something in the wharf area that has that where it's not horrendous tourist fare.
