What / Where I Ate in San Francisco, California, U.S.A. - GOTT'S ROADSIDE SOFT SERVE

After having lunch at Boudin, we headed over to Embarcadero  to check out a portion of one of the touristy spots of the San Francisco - the long stretch of Piers from 1, 1 1/2  - 45 and the Ferry Building is situated there too.

The San Francisco Ferry Building is a terminal for ferries that travel across the San Francisco Bay, a food hall[3] and an office building. It is located on The Embarcadero in San FranciscoCalifornia. - via wikipedia

From among the number of food stalls inside the Ferry Building, me and my officemate, Sheynne, opted to taste the soft serve ice cream of Gott's Roadside.

Gott's Roadside take-out counter for their delicious soft serve ice cream inside on the north side, across the hall from Out The Door. See map HERE.

You can have your ice cream either in cups or in cones.

Array of toppings to choose from.

My rating for the chocolate soft serve ice cream was 9 of 10.  The taste was typical chocolate, not too sweet.  But the texture of the ice cream was superb…

What / Where I Ate in San Francisco, California, U.S.A. - BOUDIN BAKERY CAFE

They say when in San Francisco, a first-time tourist must not miss having a bite of the famous and original San Francisco sourdough at BOUDIN Bakery Cafe!

But first, let's get to know: What is a SOURDOUGH?

Upon stepping inside the bakery cafe, we were greeted with a melange of merchandise, food and non-food.  But the yummy treats on the bakery counter have initially caught my attention.  Aside from being hungry that time, I was wowed with the sight of everything-delicious pastries.  

And to our surprise, they have this conveyor, installed on the ceiling that transported metallic baskets of bread across the entire cafe/bakery / souvenir shop.

When in a new restaurant or cafe, ordering for food is not totally that arduous.  I guess I have said this in my other blog posts, that when dining first time in an eating establishment, it is a no-brainer to order for the BESTSELLER, the cream of the crop from the menu.

This is the BOUDIN CAFE ordering area.  From the recommended BEST OF BOUDIN ch…

What / Where I Ate in Buena Park, California, U.S.A. - IN-N-OUT BURGER

"American food" is best represented by HAMBURGER, agree? This famous kind of sandwich which has a byname - BURGER is typically sold in fast-food restaurants, and even nowadays, high-end restaurants are serving them too.

If you visit California, and you are a typical eater, i.e. you eat fast-foods too, dare not to forget to have a bite of California's pride when it comes to burgers: 

Finally, finally, I was not just hearing how famous were these burgers at In-N-Out but then I had the greatest chance that moment to activate my being a food critic and to indulge in the lusciousness of this heaven-on-earth treat.

This particular branch of In-N-Out Burger was not spacious enough to accommodate hundreds of hungry eaters.  But since the restaurant is fast-food, hence, the act of eating is expected to be in sort of a haste too.  You cannot afford to delay every chewing and swallowing and gulping moves as people were flocking every now and then.  But the experience …
