I spent four days in San Francisco after New Years for some business meetings. I’ve been to San Fran multiple times before and it’s one of my favorite cities in the US. Since Jesse and I had to work, we didn’t get to do that much exploring.
As always, San Francisco food did no disappoint. We checked out Dosa, which had amazing Indian food, a decent restaurant in Chinatown and walked all over the city. The real gem of the visit was Chocolate Covered. We stayed with the owners Jack and Marilyn at their house in Noe Valley, which was a great break from hotels on many of my previous trips.
Jack was Jesse’s Dad’s college roommate and he’s now the owner of the best chocolate shop in San Francisco and the best I’ve ever been to in the world. He only carries top quality chocolate bars. Although the store is small, it’s packed with interesting, high quality chocolate from all over the world. He also makes hand made boxes with San Francisco landmarks and street signs, which have been a huge hit. It has the most 5 star ratings on Yelp that I have ever seen and it deserves it!
My favorite chocolate was a spicy chile dark chocolate, followed by a salted, spicy dark chocolate. The store is a treasure, so do yourself a favor and check it out if you’re in San Fran and you like chocolate.
