My five week-long, 50+ sandwich odyssey this past summer was all triggered by my first taste of Dutch Crunch bread, a bread unique to the Bay Area, and the ultimate choice for a sub-style sandwich. Today, we're finding the best San Francisco sub-style sandwich in the Mission.
Bite Me Sandwiches
I spent five weeks this summer living in San Francisco's Mission District, going to bars that let my dogs roam free, making plans for big hiking trips, and pretending that I was going to learn to surf.
