Where can one procure the absolute best clam chowder in a sourdough bread bowl in San Francisco (or the SF Bay Area)?

Okay, we all know that one of the things to do as a tourist in San Francisco is to go to Fisherman's Wharf and get clam chowder in a sourdough bread bowl. Generally, it's hard to go wrong, and I've generally been happy with what I've found.
Recently, my fiancée has decided that in preparation for our honeymoon, she wants to expand her usual vegetarian ways to include seafood. She is a huge fan of sourdough bread, and one of the things she has missed the most since becoming vegetarian has been clam chowder in a bread bowl.
So, AskMefites, can you help us find the absolute best clam chowder in the area (preferably with a sourdough bread bowl, but having sourdough bread available is probably sufficient)? We live in the San Jose area, and are heading up to SF tomorrow for some wedding shopping, so locations in SF proper would be preferred, but if you know a place elsewhere in the Bay Area, that's fine as well.
Thanks for your help!
