We have our favorite dining spots on my annual girls shopping trip in San Francisco, but I always love to try at least one new restaurant every year.
This year my friend Tanji introduced me to Hog Island Oyster Co. We broke off from our group to explore the farmers market at the Ferry Building.
It’s was a stunningly beautiful day by the water so she suggested Hog Island for lunch.
Of course we had to start with a little bubbly and choose a fave – Domaine Carneros Brut Rose.
It was the chowder that was the biggest surprise for me. It was creamy and yummy with carrots, potatoes, and other veggies. What I wasn’t expecting was the clams in their shells in the chowder. Made you have to work a little for each bite and I loved it!
