Umami Mart Barware
Back from the Bay Area, where I ate pretty well (Sushi Kuni, Scoma's, MacArthur Park, Dynasty), but here's what I trekked all the way back to New York with:

How ecstatic was I to find a Boudin Bakery INSIDE the United terminal at SFO? Boudin is the essence of San Francisco-- it's the best damn sourdough in the world! Since 1849! For whatever reason, NY has no good sourdough ANYWHERE. God, I actually can't even remember the last time I had it... Look at this, it's beautiful!



Such a hard and crunchy crust, perfectly golden. It's actually a rather dense, more doughy bread, almost moist, just faintly sour, never overly tangy or anything.

I picked up a few things at the store- hummus, goat cheese, salami, a tomato, clam chowder, and had a feast with my coworkers. Nothing like sharing a loaf of love from San Francisco!

  • Wow, I had no idea that sourdough was scarce on the Atlantic shores as well. I can safely say I haven’t had any here in Tokyo… I kind of forgot that it existed. Now I’m sad that I remember that it’s missing from my life.
