SFGate.com recently posted a guide to 16 things to eat and drink inside the Ferry Building. The list includes remarks from various writers and sources. We’re going to share our favorite five:
1. Rum drinks + spring rolls at the bar at the Slanted Door
“I love the sleek modern bar at the Slanted Door, especially for cocktails. It’s unlike anything else in the city, made even better as a peaceful mid-weekday respite from the chaos of its surroundings.” — Paolo Lucchesi
2. Baguette and Mount Tam cheese at Acme Bakery and Cowgirl Creamery
“One of the best bargains in the marketplace: Grab a baguette from Acme, a wheel of Mount Tam and head outside to a waterfront bench and feast.” — S.F.
3. Empanada at El Porteño
“Go with the flavor that suits your mood (I usually opt for Camarones or Acelga), but really, the move that puts it into the next realm is heavily dousing it with the accompanying chimichurri sauce and all its sharp, garlicky pop.” — P.L.
4. Biscuits at Biscuit Bender
“Van Dao’s tender, fluffy biscuits come in a rainbow of flavors, like lemon yogurt and Mexican hot chocolate, but his classic buttermilk is my favorite.” — S.F.
5. Beignets at Boulettes Larder
“These light, fluffy and sugar-dusted doughnuts are hard to beat, especially when enjoyed with a side of people watching at the Saturday farmers’ market.” — S.F.
