House made charcuterie - Barboursville Vineyards

Barboursville Vineyards, Barboursville VA

I actually liked this charcuterie board and appreciated that they were home made. However, I’m going to repeat myself – the service here is despicable. It was a while since I visited and am finally getting around to posting, but that just goes to show that I still remember vividly how rude and bitchy the server was. She certainly knew how to ruin my time at Barboursville Vineyards, and I will forever remember.

Italian classic sandwich – Boudin Bakery and Cafe

Italian classic sandwich - Boudin Bakery and Cafe
Italian salami, mortadella, provolone, lettuce, dijon mustard, mayo, sourdough baguette. Served with chips and a cookie. Boxed meal $10.99
Boudin Bakery and Cafe, San Francisco International Airport (SFO)

Uh, this was NOT the sourdough baguette I was expecting. It was really thick and dense, and totally threw off the bread-to-filling sandwich ratio. I actually had to carve out some of the bread from the top bun! Basic sandwich, little payoff.

Chips and cookie - Boudin Bakery and Cafe
Tim’s Cascade sea salt and vinegar potato chips and a chocolate chip cookie.

Artisan salumi mixed plate – Beretta

Artisan salumi mixed plate - Beretta
Lardo, sopressata, hot coppa, prosciutto di parma, mortadella, with giardiniera and grilled bread. $18
Beretta, San Francisco CA

If you didn’t know that I love salumi, here’s proof! Hehe. Omg, this meat antipasti boards makes me SO hungry. Suffice it to say that every piece was joyfully devoured. NOMS!

Darby Dan sandwich - Darby Dan's Sandwich Co.
Ham, mortdadella, Italian salami, cheese, mayonnaise, garlic spread, mustard, crushed jalapenos, lettuce, and tomato on Dutch crunch bread. $7.75
Darby Dan Sandwich Co., South San Francisco CA

The sandwiches here are quite large and pretty good! They tend to pile on the spreads so if that doesn’t interest you, I’d suggest requesting a light application, hehe. I also love that their Dutch crunch bread is extra flaky on top!

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.

Italian sub – Luigi’s Sandwich Palace

Italian sub Luigi's Sandwich Palace

1/2 sandwich with mortadella, salami, provolone cheese, sundried tomatoes, lettuce, garlic, and pepperocinis on a wheat bun. 1/2 sandwich 1/2 soup combo, $5.95
Luigi’s Sandwich Palace, South San Francisco

Omg, for 1/2 a sandwich this was HUGE and tasty!  I loved the combination of mortadella, salami and provolone.  The sundried tomatoes and pepperocinis added lots of flavor.  I wasn’t blown away by this sandwich but it was simple and delicious.  Can’t complain about that!
