Hog Island Oyster Company – Ferry Building, San Francisco

I took a quick (less than 24 hour) trip to the Bay for work last weekend and ended up at the Ferry Building for lunch. One of my favorite things to do is peruse the Ferry Building for interesting food like mushroom jerky and stinky cheeses. An always necessary stop is the Hog Island Oyster Company which has thankfully increased exponentially in size since the last time I went there. The oyster sampler is always delicious and if you sit at the Oyster Bar or outside you get a lovely view of the Bay Bridge.

The Oyster Po Boy did not disappoint. I recommend sharing and ordering a ton of stuff off the menu. Not pictured – the Fried Oysters and Waffles are another must-order.

Pearl Oyster Bar – NYC

While waiting the two hour wait for Ippudo, I took a quick trip across town to Pearl Oyster Bar. Oddly enough, my favorite thing on the menu was the caesar salad. Totally fresh (difficult to find salad this fresh in NYC), and perfectly seasoned. The oysters were delicious as expected. The restaurant was low key and friendly. I’m a fan of sitting at the bar for a quick bite so this was a perfect pre-meal snack.
