SAN FRANCISCO MENTION :: Alfajores from The Ferry Building Marketplace
STUFF INSIDE: dulce de leche
Again, this probably doesn’t qualify as a sandwich. Though it is dulce de leche sandwiched between two shortbreads dusted with powdered-sugar. Really, it’s just an excuse to talk about alfajores - the reason I got fat that one time in Buenos Aires. Haven’t really found many bakeries that serve alfajores, let alone, good ones. So this was an awesome surprise. Not too sweet. The cookies crumble then melt in your mouth. Followed by a slight saltiness to the dulce de leche, which win! I forget who the vendor was, but it’s all the way at the south end of the Ferry Building right after the wild mushroom stall. They also have yummy banana & dulce de leche empanadas.
