Hi... I eat out everyday for lunch and am looking for some new places. I work near the El Camino/Watt area but I'm in the field a lot, so suggestions for Midtown and South Sac. would also be appreciated. I love sandwiches and can't currently find any that replace my all-time favorites.
For Turkey Sandwiches, I like real turkey, not the processed, rolled stuff. I like the sandwiches at Eggies, Cornerstone and Boudin but wonder if there are any other places that make fresh turkey sandwiches??
For Roast Beef, the best sandwich I've ever had (in Sac.) was at a deli that's no longer in business. It used to be at 19th & L, but was replaced by City Treasure, which was replaced by the Creperie. Any suggestions would be nice. I like them cold or hot, as long as mayo and cheese are involved(& preferably sourdough or white bread).
For Tuna, my ultimate fave. was at Deli Delight (on J St. and 24th?) but they closed down a few years ago and I can't find one that even comes close! I like my tuna not too wet and not filled w/a bunch of extras (Fast Tans & Deli's put water chestnuts and raisins in their tuna salad - beyond yuck!) Mayo, pepper and quality tuna and I'm happy... Their sandwich was prepared differently than most deli's -- they put on tuna, then the cheese, then another layer of tuna and then the veggies. Something about that.......
And I'm looking for good seafood sandwiches. Back in the mid-90's, Lyons used to serve the most wonderful shrimp salad sandwich. It had large, plump shrimp in a mayo-like, dill sauce and then the salad was topped w/mont. jack cheese, avocado, lettuce and put on a croissant. It was heaven and I've never seen anything like it since in this area. I really, really miss it! As for hot crab sandwiches, I really like the one at 33rd Street bistro, but for hot sandwiches, need a place a little closer to work, so the sandwich doesn't get cold or soggy. (they used to have a deli outlet at Arden Fair; boy, do I miss that they closed it!!) The best, cold crab sandwiches I've ever had are the ones on the wharf in S.F. I've never seen anything similar here.
So, if my fellow chowhounds, can help me find some new favorites, I'd be forever greatful!
