'wichcraft, SF report w/ menu typed up!
- hhc Oct 17, 2006 11:05 PM
I went to 'wichcraft Tues 10/17 to try it out. It wasn't busy at all at 11am which was nice for me.
Noticed the drinks that you can help yourself to on the left of the cashiers. I got Fizzy Lizzy Fuji Apple soda 12 oz for $2.25, they had other drinks and bottled water including Vignette wine soda.
I couldn't decide on the sandwich I wanted, but finally picked roasted turkey which has avocado, bacon, onion relish & aioli on ciabatta roll $9.50. It's a small sandwich, turkey meat was dry, didn't taste any onion relish or aioli, avocado wasn't quite ripe. bacon was ok.
I also got one of the soups of the day: lentil w/ parmesan cheese. I liked it, wish it was a bit warmer. The other soup was tomato w/ parmesan cheese.
They take credit card and you'll need it, it's so expensive. They give you a flat plastic number and somebody brings it to you.
My total with tax was $17.07!! Very full now though.
I'll go back to try more *(see below). Recommended.

I tried the same sandwich yesterday- same thing dry meat and only the bottom of the bread was heated- so I had to eat it open faced and ask for more aioli to moisten it- I was expecting better hopefully it will improve
tried the sardine sandwich as well- not bad but everything was very acidic and not so well balanced
the potato soup was good though
Thanks for taking the time to put up the whole menu online....I really appreciate your making this effort! I will ofcourse give it a try...I hope someone clues them into our reports on Chowhound so that their 'shakedown' will end on a positive note...they only have one month to 'get it right' at least in my book!
