Craziest Sandwiches in San Francisco


San Francisco is known for its inventive culinary scene, and sandwiches are no exception. Here are some of the top unique creations around the city that will cause your everyday peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to be a thing of the past.

Crazy Crab'z Sandwich

Fresh crab between two slices of grilled garlic bread and plenty of added garlic and butter makes this sandwich a crowd favorite at AT&T Park. With an Anchor Steam in hand to wash it all down, and a perfect afternoon breeze off the Bay as you watch the game unfold, there is truly nothing better in life than this.

Il Cane Rosso's Egg Salad Sandwich

Egg salad sandwiches hardly are cause for excitement, but Lauren Kiino's version makes you reconsider all your thoughts on this sandwich. With garlic aioli, salty anchovy butter, a sprinkling of various herbs, and a generous portion of hard-boiled eggs, there is no denying that this nothing like the sandwiches from your elementary school day lunches.

Café St. Jorge's The Goose is Loose Sandwich

For a sweet-savory combination that includes bananas, cheese, and ham, this sandwich's ingredients works surprisingly well together. This wonderful creation is common in Portugal, and this café offers other Portuguese sandwiches as well like the classic Tosta Mista (ham and cheese).

Rhea's Deli's Korea Steak Sandwich

Perfectly soy-marinated ribeye tucked between an Acme sweet roll, and topped with onions, cheddar, garlic aioli and chili sauce is a must for Korean food enthusiasts. There are other noteworthy sandwiches, but this one takes the cake.

Bacon Bacon's The Breakfast Sandwich

This popular morning meal takes bacon to the next level with its fried egg, cheddar, bacon and bacon jam on a brioche bun. Just remember that you have been warned that this sandwich is highly addictive. Breakfast is served all day for those who like to sleep in late.
