Their salads and soups are fantastic, and a handy place to eat while shopping in Fashion Valley. I liked the Asian salad, my friend loved the Cobb Salad, and the chili is great too.

Didn't realize San Diego has a Boudin until I stumbled upon this in the back of the mall!! My wife and I loved the sourdough bread bowl with clown chowder! My wife was waiting for me while I picked something up at another store and an employee was attentive enough to notice she hadn't eaten much and made sure that... More

Soup, salad or sandwiches - your choice. Fresh baked breads daily, and the flavor so will remind you of your last visit to Fisherman's Wharf. The food and service are very good, and the prices are reasonable, too. There is a nice outdoor eating area for warm days, or dine inside. Your needs wil be met by roving server help.... More

Brought to the Fashion Mall for shopping. Lunch time is clearly the time to come. We were greeted with smiles and orders taken with enthusiasm. The gentleman serving our orders gave us a bow and sincere thanks for choosing Boudin Sourdough. The atmosphere is relaxing and some folks were using their electronic devices undisturbed. Business people and families both appeared... More

Wife had been craving to come here. We first visited the Boudin's while in San Francisco. Had the half sandwich (Italian) and chili bowl. Was able to finish both and wondered why so many people don't eat the sourdough bowl. That is why you come here!

The food at Boudin is great. We go here often and it is always good, no matter what you order. The customer service on our most recent visit was especially outstanding as well.

I want to make this clear I was there just for the bread and its best in San Diego. The first bite of the sourdough round brought me back to my first trip to San Francisco shortly after I got home from Viet Nam in 1968. Growing up in Minnesota its was "Holsum White bread" and when my first bite... More

I bought a turkey sandwich and a cobb salad to bring back to my hotel. The turkey sandwich was good if you like hard crusty bread. I had to peel the crusts off to be able to eat the sandwich, otherwise I would have been gnawing on it for a while. The cob salad was mostly lettuce with some feta... More
