Admittedly, this place is a little too much of a tourist area for my general taste but not visiting the Fisherman’s Wharf at least once is a stubborn move. That and there is a lot of history in this reminiscent little stretch of San Francisco. On my first visit I was prompted to eat at Pompei’s Grotto and their fish tacos were great but I had initially come for something different. That something was the world famous Ghirardelli Ice Cream and Chocolate Shop. I have never had a better dessert before or since that time and as I wandered the wharf checking out the many amazing maritime memorials and sunbathing sea lions, the chocolate will forever be the best part of that area.
