Pal's Takeaway's Fourth Anniversary Party, Expansion Plans

Posted By on Tue, Apr 16, 2013 at 10:30 AM


It's a little-disputed fact that some of the city's best sandwiches come from Pal's Takeaway, the tiny counter ensconced in Tony's Market at 24th and Hampshire (though you may remember a few months ago when they were raising Kickstarter funds for a move/expansion; more on that in a moment). Anyway, the beloved sandwich shop is celebrating its fourth anniversary this Friday with a bevvy of super-special sandwich-making guest stars.

Best Sandwiches - Pal's Takeaway, inside Tony's Market

Nopa's Laurence Jossel will be serving his house-cured tasso ham on Josey Baker bread. Wise Sons Deli is teaming up with Pal's to make a pastrami bahn mi. Former Pal Dave Knopp will be bringing smoked coffee-rubbed pulled pork with house BBQ sauce on a Firebrand onion challah bun. And Joe and Amy from Marla bakery will be serving chai-masala pot de cremes with rose and huckleberry syrup for dessert.

As for the expansion, it's definitely still in the works. Pal's Takeaway owner Jeff Mason tells us that he's teaming up with his old friend Michael Meadows, whose new wine bar, La Movida, is under construction in the former El Delfin space at 24th and Folsom.

"I'm really excited about it because I'll have a full kitchen," Mason says, adding that they'll have table service and plan to expand the menu. "We'll be able to do more stuff than we'll be able to do here."

Expect the Pal's/La Movida combination to open in June or July. In the meantime, celebrate four sandwich-filled years with Mason on Friday.

  • 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.'"
