9th and Larkin Vietnamese bar

San Francisco, CA

bean to barBean to bar squared

Started in 2017 in their kitchen by chocolate maker/analyst Lan Phan and her engineer husband Brian, 9th & Larkin crafts single origin bean-to-bar chocolate. The bars are very distinctive: big 4″x4″ squares wrapped in paper that looks like an abstract print, but is really created from the impression a cacao pod made rolling over a silk surface.

Available online, at some local markets (we found them at Hudson Greens & Goods in Napa), and at special events.

CBTB tip

Try their signature Vietnamese bar first. It’s fudgy and somewhat savory, with coffee overtones and a nutty aftertaste.
