SF: Hot Cookie - penis macaroon?
Lousy name for a search, so if it has been reported here i'd appreciate the link.
The reviews of this place are really making me laugh. However, it seems they are also good coolies and in addition to x-rated stuff, they make regular cookies such as chocolate toffee, cocoa cayenne, chocolate chip, snicker doodle, white chocolate chip, and brownies
I found a food soul mate today whose reviews are on spot with my tastes for the places i've also been. Since this got a thumbs up, I thought I'd ask about it.
Located in the Castro and open until 1 am ... so if you need a little sugar after midnight this might be the place.
Yeah, Hot Cookie is not really a Chowhoundy place. The penis macaroons (and brand new vulva macaroons!) are fun, but none of the cookies are particularly interesting or noteworthy, and their by-the-pound pricing usually turns out to be really expensive ($2-3 per cookie). I live three doors down and never really stop in except for the occasional late-night drunk cookie.
But it might be fun to take one and dunk it into an Irish coffee next door at Twin Peaks if you're really curious.
heh, it's difficult not to jump into innuendo with this reply.
Hot Cookie is a fun place to take people when visiting the Castro the first time, but I don't think I'd recommend it to a Chowhound. Their cookies are fine, but more often than not they're raw in the center. Anthony's Cookies does a much better job at balancing a soft center with a crisp outside.
Even still, I do eat there several times a year. I can't think of cheaper late night snacks in that area, and it's good to tide you over while waiting for a film at the Castro.
