SS Jeremiah O'Brien & Bistro Boudin



Getting my waffles down and out to do some more exploring in San Francisco. We walked out to Pier 45 at Fisherman's Wharf to have a look at one of two of the remaining fully functional Liberty Ships from World War II. 


I know an army's naval ship may not be everyone's cuppa tea when it comes down to touristy things. Come to think of it, I've been in London for just about 10 odd years and I still haven't gone onto the London Eye. Surprising what and where life takes you. 



This walk up to The SS Jeremiah O'Brien was more than just creepy when you sway side to side on this old creaky steel staircase. Doesn't help when it gets windy on board. You do wonder how those back in the day dealt with it right? 


Captain's Room
Is it me or just like the movies, the Captain's room always seems to have a dark side to it.


After getting off the SS Jeremiah O'Brien, there was a warehouse just along Pier 45, a warehouse converted into an arcade filled with vintage games. There were games which even I have never seen in my life before. Still, you can't beat the classics. 




After a good morning tour and walk, we made our way back to the Boudin Bakery where they had a Bistro upstairs. 


Still cute as ever!
Really wanted to get myself a turtle and teddy bear loaf

Mussels Marniere ($17.95) | Ceviche Trio ($15.95) | Beets, Watermelon and Spinach Salad | Sourdough Tortilla Tacos ($15.95)

Grilled Rock Cod |  Spicy Grilled Shrimp | Dungeness Crab Taco

The mussels and salad were pretty standard but we couldn't decide on which one of the three choices so we just choice one of each. The best of the three was definitely the shrimp taco. There's got to be something crispy for me especially when the taco wrap is already pretty soft. 



The Ceviche Trio had the Alaskan Halibut, Gulf Shrimp and Calamari Ceviche. Personally, I like the calamari the most because of the texture the squid after it's been marinated.
