Many people consider San Francisco the ancestral home of sourdough bread, but there are plenty of great bakers in the rest of the Bay Area. One of the most famous is Michael’s Sourdough, which serves up hundreds of amazing sandwiches on fresh-baked sourdough bread every day. A unique yeast starter is the key to this bread, giving it a tang that’s noticeable, but not overpowering. The loaves are also made from all natural ingredients with no added sugar.
Of course, bread alone does not a sandwich make, so the other key ingredients here are the meats, which are prepared in-house from recipes developed by the owner’s grandfather. The choice roast beef with Swiss is popular, as the meat is tender and perfectly seasoned. Also recommended is Michael’s “Dusty Dog,” which pairs smoked chicken and apple sausage with Swiss cheese. Many locals also swear by the liverwurst sandwich. Prices are very reasonable and sandwiches are large.
