Looking for SF's BEST BLT

I like my bacon on the chewy side (not too crispy). other than that i am open to suggestions.

p.s. i am new here and this is my first posting!

  1. If you don't mind a Cal-Med twist, Zazie has a nice "BLT Provencale" with thick chewy bacon, broiled tomatoes, goat cheese, and aioli. Yum!

    1. Welcome, Karoline,

      I don't know if it's the best one in San Francisco, but I like the BLT they make at Tyger's quite a bit. They use a wonderful applewood-smoked bacon and will cook it to order.

      1. re: Euonymous

        oooh, i will second that rec. although, their fries are a little lame. But Tygers is a good solid breakfast lunch spot, and their bacon is quite delicious.

        They close at 3 i think, be warned.

      2. We had a great BLT at Myth Cafe last week. They put it in the panini machine & add cheese, which keeps the sandwich from falling apart while you eat it (always a BLT problem, I find). The rest of the menu is good & a good value, too.

        1. If you dont have any luck finding one you can always make one yourself. things like quality bread and good applewood smoked bacon really do the trick.

          1. My favorite BLT is at the Hayes Street Grill Stand at the Saturday Ferry Plaza Farmers Market. They use Hobbs Bacon and just before the market opens, they buy tomatoes from the best vendor at the market, whoever that might be that week. Tell them how you would like it cooked.

            Welcome to Chowhound. Please report back on which BLT's you tried and liked. Looking forward to that and other reports from you.
