While we were in Denver we knew that we had to try some local specialties, and Biker Jim’s Gourmet Dogs came highly recommended by the people we talked to. They have a restaurant, but the weather was so nice we wanted to checkout their food cart instead.
On Wednesdays their menu changes slightly. That day they featured Pheasant Sausage, Hungarian Sausage, and their Bosna Brat.
After we left Musée Mécanique, we turned the corner and saw the sign for Boudin. I am a huge fan of sourdough bread, and the thought of eating fresh San Francisco Boudin sourdough was too exciting to pass up. We had to have it for lunch.
Upstairs was their museum and Bistro Boudin, where there was a bar and a nice sit down restaurant. It had a gorgeous view of the ocean. Downstairs was the bakery, where they sold cookbooks, teas, official merchandise, and of course their famous sourdough bread. The line was really long, but the people behind the counter moved fast, so the wait wasn’t too bad.
After leaving Capitol Park, we decided to Yelp and see what was nearby that had good reviews. We came across Squeeze Inn that had a ton of very high ratings, and was also featured on Guy Fieri’s show Diners Drive-Ins and Dives on the Food Network. Truth was, we weren’t very hungry, but figured we could share a burger, some fries, and check out the place.
After our hike, we visited the Muir Woods Trading Cafe located towards the beginning of the park. The cafe is attached to a souvenir shop that had really interesting items that would be great for gift giving or to keep as souvenirs. From locally made jewelry, little seedlings that you can plant in your garden, to chocolates shaped like Banana Slugs. Outside there were wooden benches where people sat to rest, and enjoy their food.
