Best Ferry Building Bargain San Francisco 2007 - $2 sausage on a stick
Can you do the Ferry Building for $2? Sure, you can buy what? six olives from one of the organic grocers, or sweat the clerks at the Cowgirl Creamery for cheese samples. But there's a deal lurking in the steaming, dripping-hot case at Golden Gate Meat Company: the all-meat-and-no-bullshit sausage on a stick. No, we don't mean corn dogs (screw batter!). We're talking meat and a stick finito! with a line of mustard run down the face for no extra charge. It's a little bit of sanity in a place crowded with status food, and there's a weighty satisfaction in walking down the gourmet promenade holding something on a stick. The next time your girlfriend and her mom share a single, $10 soft-boiled egg at Tsar Nicoulai Caviar (definitely not a bargain, but still quite good), slide off for a couple of sausage sticks with the boys.
