the ferry building.

we headed up to san francisco in early november for the wedding of two of our favorite people on the planet (but we'll get to that next post). our hotel was just a block from the ferry building, so when we got checked in we headed right over to eat some tasty, fresh seafood at hog island oyster co!

as usual, there was a line, but it was worth it! also, being only a party of two, it was a pretty short wait. we ordered two of each kind of oyster they had so we could try all of them. our favorites were the disco hamas. so, so good!

18 oysters on the half shell, 2 of each available.

grilled gulf shrimp.

oyster po' boy sandwich: cornmeal fried oysters, hogwash slaw, remoulade, old bay fries.

we tried a variety of seafood dishes - the grilled shrimp were BIG and sweet and tasty. i loved my steamers with pasta and chorizo. nice and hearty like a chowder but not as heavy and way  more interesting.

steamers with pasta: manila clams, chorizo, shishito pepper, leek top, tomatillo sauce, white wine, butter.

we didnt' spend much more time in the ferry building. we were pretty tired, so i think we just walked back to the hotel and napped before getting ready for the weekend festivities. i can't wait to share that with you next post!!
