San Francisco..Sandwich questions

Please reply with only IN San Francisco suggestions--no suburbs.

Relocated to SF from the east coast for 4 years now and still am craving 2 things that aren't prevalent.

#1. Wraps.

It seems like no sandwich shop in Pac Heights, Presidio Heights, Western Addition, or Marina offer wraps. I'd love to get a good turkey wrap or roast beef wrap, but I haven't found any restaurants that offer this option.

#2. Hole in the wall delis that serve Boards Head meat.

The only establishment that I have seen to serve sandwiches with Boars Head meat is Molly Stones. Are there any good tasty hole in the walls that have cracked pepper turkey or sauslito turkey?

  1. Sorry - I live in the Western Addition and there just ain't no wraps 'round here. It seems to be a food thing that went by the wayside several years ago (I think it was a 90s thing). I remember a plethora of wrap restaurants opening up around '92 and '94 but they are all gone now...

    Also, we had a pretty big fight/discussion about Boar's Head several months ago and the general consensus is that it has been relegated to grocery stores because it is not that well-received otherwise. Many of us (me included) find Boar's Head meats rather one-dimensional in that the various turkeys really all taste the same and has been injected with too much moisturizers and fillers.

    Sorry to disappoint you!

      I never quite got Boars Head deli meats. Perhaps it's an East Coast thing sort of like how Columbus is a West Coast/SF thing. The meat is obviously important but I'd be more concerned about the bread in a sandwich.

    2. We have the ultimate wraps, a.k.a. Mission burritos, but no, "wraps" went the way of mullet.

      Turkeys in Sausalito?

        The wrap may be gone but the mullet is still with us.

        1. re: wolfe

          The only good mullets around are at the Lexington. If you still want wraps, World Wraps still has places in Santa Clara and Corte Madra.

          Parachute pants and baggy jeans...that's another deal.

      2. Yeah, that wrap fad came and went. Big City Wraps in 2 Embarcadero Center might still be in business. Truly Mediterranean makes schawerma and falafel wraps.

        Boar's Head sighting:

        1. I'm not a wrap fan so I can't say if any of these are good personally. Here's a search of which lists some restaurants with wraps ... here's the ceasar chicken section

          There is also

          Here's the pdf menu

          Seems like that part of the financial district/embarcadero/soma section remains the hotbed of the wrap.

          1. I'm not certain, but on the East Coast, a lot of Turkish owned sub/pizza places have wraps that aren't the burrito-style wraps, they are in pita- I just want to clarify that this is what the OP is looking for.

            As for hole-in-the-wall delis with Boars Head- I think there are some in the Marina.
