Deli Board: Don't Fear the Breakfast Sandwich 

Wednesday, Mar 20 2013

Bacon, sausage, fried eggs. At first glance, the description of Deli Board's BK sandwich ($11) doesn't exactly provoke visions of a sexy brunch. In fact, upon delivery to a rickety sidewalk table, this breakfast appears downright ghastly. A unification of yolk, melted American cheese and Board sauce (think spicy Russian dressing) flows onto the sandwich's brown-paper wrapper like a pale reddish-yellow lava. Don't be scared. Take a bite.

Like many options at Deli Board, the BK features a Dutch Crunch roll that's unrecognizable when compared to its liquor store sandwich-counter brethren. This bread is less dense with a crisper shell, its brittleness exaggerated by a quick turn on the griddle. Dwarfing your standard English muffin or biscuit, the roll allows excess to run amok inside. Not just bacon, but four slices of bacon. Two thick, oddly shaped disks of sausage that fit the roll to a tee. And how much cheese? "I don't know, five or six slices depending on who's making it," owner Adam Mesnick casually boasts.

It adds up to a gooey eruption of salty, meaty flavor. Any sane carnivore would share this monstrosity with a few friends. SFoodie, never known for sanity, polished off the whole thing and thanked the gut-bomb gods that the BK is only offered on weekends.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
