I recently ate brunch at Radish in the Mission. This place has been getting great reviews and I finally got out to try it.
I am usually a sucker for sweet things in the morning so naturally I ordered the french toast. I really don’t know how to start describing it. I was so good that I don’t know where to begin.
Ok. So great french toast is made with good quality bread, is not soggy and and has a fluffy texture in your mouth. At radish they accomplish all of this because of one thing. They make their own baguette. Some baguettes can be bad for french toast because they are too hard to begin with so to get them soft enough they are overcooked and become soggy. The homemade baguette was not hard nor soggy. It was cooked to perfection. The texture on the outside was crisp and slightly crunchy. The middle was fluffy and smooth. Two great feelings create one super feeling in your mouth when combined. Add on the syrup and you’ve got one of the better french toasts in the city if not the best. I feel like my advocation for their homemade baguette was underwhelming. So you need to go try it yourself.
