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.
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?
I was thinking of posting a plug for this place since they recently installed a deli in the back of the store. I'm actually not sure of the name: Green/Polk Market? In Russian Hill on Polk between Polkers and Royal Ground. Featuring Boar's Head meats, although I'm not sure if they have the particular ones you want.Since it is a new venture, you can help tweak them to your favorite Boar's Head brands. basic sandwich is $5.99. They also have rotisserie chickens and salads.
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.
I'm not a wrap fan so I can't say if any of these are good personally. Here's a search of foodiebyes.com which lists some restaurants with wraps ... here's the ceasar chicken section

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