The chocolate babka from Wise Sons Jewish Delicatessen is an unholy swirl of toothsome dough and cinnamon-y chocolate, topped with a streusel that is caramelized to perfection. The restaurant's owners, Evan Bloom and Leo Beckerman, have been peddling the classic Jewish bread since their pop-up days. In a classic San Francisco move, the guys substituted high-quality bittersweet Guittard chocolate and a lot of real butter for the more traditional palm oil and inferior chocolate. Eat it smeared with cream cheese for a decadent breakfast.
