Renzo special sandwich – Molinari Delicatessen

Renzo special sandwich - Molinari Delicatessen
Prosciutto, coppa, fresh mozzarella, and sun dried tomato. $9.75
Molinari Delicatessen, San Francisco CA

Ew, I was not a fan! The prosciutto had so much fat and tough connective tissue that I couldn’t even gnaw through the sandwich! I had to keep spitting out balls of fat that I couldn’t eat, and lord knows that I can usually chew through anything. The meats were subpar and the bread wasn’t even fresh. The sundried toamtoes also had a weird aftertaste. This was a total letdown!

Coppa, mortadella and Swiss sandwich – Lucca Ravioli Company

Coppa, mortadella and Swiss sandwich - Lucca Ravioli Company
On hard sourdough, mayo and mustard packets on the side. $5.95
Lucca Ravioli Company, San Francisco CA

This delicious, no frills sandwich is sliced to order and pretty large for six bucks! The meats are yummy and they put a good amount of it in the sammy. Yay! Next time I’ll probably get the soft sourdough bread though. This was a little too hard for me, especially since I didn’t put any condiments on it.

Carne board – Uva Enoteca

Carne board Uva Enoteca

3 item charcuterie board with hot coppa (San Francisco), salame al tartufo (Utah), and turkey galantine (San Francisco). $15
Uva Enoteca, San Francisco

I learned something new! According to Wikipedia “A galantine is a French dish of de-boned stuffed meat, most commonly poultry or fish, that is poached and served cold, coated with aspic.” I’m not sure if this turkey was stuffed and maybe they scraped the aspic off before serving, but it was delicious! And we were surprised by the size of the slab. Of the three items we ordered, the truffled salami was my favorite. I’ve since purchased some from Whole Foods and secretly snack on it throughout the week.
