Hog Island Oyster Co. - San Francisco Trip

We went back to the Ferry Building on the Embarcadero the next day, because we were curious about the Hog Island Oyster Co., which we had passed by the day before, and Jen always loves her oysters. The photo is of two oyster shuckers...what a job! =P Thank god we did...
We ordered some of the local SF oysters, which Hog Island Oyster Co. specializes in. All were very good, and fresh.
A simple mixed green salad, with some cheese from one of the local stores in the Ferry building. Quite good, from what I remember - light and refreshing.
A very good clam chowder, with an overabundance of fresh clams. Every clam chowder should be like this!
1) If you combine cheese from Cowgirl Creamery (in the Ferry Building)
2) And fresh bread from Acme Bakery (also in the Ferry Building)

= The best damn grilled cheese sandwich that I have ever tasted. I never thought I would taste a grilled cheese sandwich this good - they use three different cheeses from Cowgirl Creamery: a Mezzo Secco, a cave-aged Gruyere and a Fromage Blanc cheese. I cannot even begin to describe the flavor of the cheeses when melted together - light, smooth, yet complex - it was one heavenly mix of melted cheese. The bread was not greasy at all, like most grilled cheeses were. Also served with their house made pickled vegetables. Everyone in this world must taste this grilled cheese sandwich at least once before they die. Hooray for Hog Island Oyster Co. (and Cowgirl Creamery and Acme Bread)!
