Boudin

Each day that we walked to Fishermans Wharf we were greeted by the fragrant aroma of fresh-baked sourdough bread. Brian and Jay would bask under the Boudin exhaust duct to get the full aromatic experience. The delicious aroma is like a drug that you just can’t get enough of… We would always walk on the Boudin side of the street toward Fishermans Wharf. LOL.

We worked up quite an appetite, wandering around Alcatraz. Jay and Becca had built up Boudin in their descriptions. The delicious aroma helped to seal the deal. We decided that we would go there for lunch.

In-N-Out is pretty hard to top for a first meal. We figured that Boudin could do it, just based on the smell. It’s so enticing that you just have to stop in.

Luckily, Sheryll had a break from her busy job fair schedule and was able to join us for lunch. Sheryll is my best friend from high school. We lost touch for a while after my family moved to the US in 1993. However, we got to spend a day together in 1998 (when mom, Jenni and I returned to the Philippines for vacation). That was the last time I’d seen Sheryll. We hadn’t seen each other since then.

Sheryll and her husband Clayton had just started seeing each other around that time, I think. Now they have three wonderful kiddos: Steffano (10), Cameron (9) and Sam (6). Sam is a spitting image of Sheryll.

I’m really grateful for Facebook because it makes staying in touch so much easier. It helped Pia — who I hadn’t seen in forever (almost eight years) also — and Sheryll and I to coordinate our San Francisco meetup. It was great to see Sheryll again and it was wonderful to finally meet her family.

But I digress… Going back to Boudin. I had a New England clam chowder in a sourdough bread bowl. It was delicious!

Everyone else had chowder also. You can’t go to Boudin and not have soup in a bread bowl! LOL.
