"The Bomber" Sandwich @ Mal's Market | Seaside

Melanie Wong | Feb 5, 201701:12 PM    

Awhile ago a friend had recommended the meatball sandwich at Mal's Market in Seaside on the Monterey Peninsula. We headed over there on Thursday after an appointment. I'm glad that I was pointed here, as I would never have stumbled upon this convenience store tucked into an out of the way residential area on my own.

Meatballs were already sold out at 2pm. Instead I got the signature sandwich here, The Bomber. Priced at $8.99 for whole, it's also available as a half-sandwich. The softish roll, allegedly Dutch Crunch though light on the crunch factor, was packed with turkey, ham, roast beef, crispy bacon and Swiss cheese. Ordered with everything, the garnishes included a leaf of iceberg lettuce, tomato, pickle slices, shaved red onions, mustard, mayo, jalapeño sauce and garlic spread. While these are commodity ingredients, the whole is greater than the sum of parts. The jalapeño and garlic condiments, similar to Little Lucca's in South San Francisco, make this special. Shared with my friend, and we agreed that half of The Bomber was plenty for a meal.

There are a couple small tables inside and more outside in the huge parking lot. It was a pleasant lunch stop for eating al fresco.
