In case you haven’t noticed, we take chowing down pretty seriously. Whether it’s innovative ice-cream flavors or a perfectly toasted pizza pie — unearthing the Bay’s greatest grub is something we’re incredibly passionate about. And, the fact that National Sandwich Month is upon us (who knew, right?) we figured it was about time
we decided to take it back to the basics and revisted the best lunchtime staples around.
Because when a sammy is piled to perfection, each layer provides an extraordinary mesh of magical flavors (we don't think we're exaggerating even a bit, here!). So, we did the dirty work (tough, right?) and tasted a slew of yummy options you need to sink your teeth into, stat. From egg-salad sandwiches to meaty delights at old-school spots and newbie haunts alike, this list has got a delectable bite for everyone. But be warned: This slideshow will make your tummy grumble…nom.
