I've been to San Francisco Ferry Building so many times but this was my first time trying out Hog Island Oyster Co. with my mom during one of our lunch outings. The place seems to be always packed every time I passed by. This time was no difference. We had to wait for 30 min or so for our table. Not too bad I guess since we came right during the lunch hour rush. We were seated right in front of the guys who are shucking the oysters. It was really interesting to see them opening one after the other. Their food was overall great. I'm no foodie so I can't really describe each of the items we ordered in great details, but they all tasted fresh and delicious, each with different distinct flavors. My favorite was their clam chowder. The clam chowder has a nice tasty broth and they are pretty generous with the amounts of clams and other ingredients in the soup. It was a really fulfilling and satisfying bowl of chowder. Can't go wrong with ordering their clam chowder at this place.
One of my favorite things to do when I'm in the bay area is visiting Ferry Plaza Farmers Market. And so, during my last trip, I did just that with my sisters and my mom. It always fun visiting this place because there are so much things to do. This time, I can't helped to fall in love with all the colorful fresh vegetables that were on display all over the market. I think because I haven't been here for a while, I'm once again fascinated with all these bright colors.
Of course after exploring the outdoor area, we went inside the Ferry building to sightsee some more. As soon as we entered the hall, we're greeted by the crowd of people shopping at the different stalls along the hallway. People lining up to buy their fresh groceries, vendors offering their product samples for people to try, and some people are dining at their favorite spots are common sights for a Saturday morning in this place. Hope I can visit this place again soon.
