From hoagies to tortas to banh mi, here are my favorite sandwich spots in SF. Mmmmeaty goodness.
You can have your sandwich any way you want, but really, the Renzo special with freshly sliced coppa, sun-dried tomatoes, and fresh mozzarella is the way to go. Ask for it on focaccia=super soft and delicious.
I don't think I could possibly love this restaurant any more than I already do. Fabulously flavor-forward cuisine by Nick Balla with Eastern European influences, and the occasional hint of Japan. Don't miss the langos appetizer, and come for lunch: excellent sandwiches (like the katsu).
Big, messy, sloppy, meaty, cheesy sandwiches that are constructed beautifully. My stomach grumbles just thinking about one. I adore the spicy chicken tinga, but the pierna enchilada is the most famous one. Do not attempt to eat an entire one yourself (unless you're really wasted).
Gourmet sandwiches that you can enjoy during the day on the Central Kitchen patio. The rotisserie meats are especially good. You can bring home some quality foodstuffs for the larder, like pastas and cheeses.
Love all the homemade touches here. Very tasty corned beef, but it's the matzo ball soup that really rocks my world. Ditto the smoked trout salad.
No place like it in the city--big, honking, meaty sandwiches on such soft hoagie rolls. It's all about the #1 for me. Soups, also very good.
