Ginger Pork Sandwich

Ginger Pork Sandwich

I first read about this little bakery in San Francisco magazine’s article, An Opinionated Guide to the Sandwich, listing the top 40 sandwiches in SF. The article highlights the mushroom croque monsieur, but I was drawn to the little paper-wrapped sandwiches lined on top of the counter. In addition to this mini ginger pork slider, there were mini sloppy joes and mini tomato and goat cheese sandwiches, as well as a number of classic baked goods like pain au chocolat and ham and cheese croissants.
The bakery is owned by Mutsumi Takehara, yet another Chez Panisse alumna, and she adds a nice Japanese twist to many of the items. One of my favorites was the banana and chocolate heart, which is similar to the traditional red bean-filled buns found in many Asian bakeries, but instead of beans, the filling was a moist mix of real bananas and rich chocolate.
This cute bakery is definitely worth a visit – bring some friends so you can try more of the delectable offerings!
