Little Lucca, Lotta Sandwich

Little Lucca Sandwich Shop and Deli 724 El Camino Real South San Francisco, CA 94080

Last Friday, I had one of the best days off I've had in a long while. I should have known my day was going to be nothing short of awesome, when it started with a little lunch date with my coworker, and friend, Doug. He's a fellow foodie, so we both take pleasure in all things taste bud-worthy. We decided to stop by Little Lucca to fill up on some sandwiches. Little Lucca always has a line that extends out the door. You can bet you'll be waiting for at least 20 minutes, but please know that it is very much worth the wait. I went for my favorite Roasted Turkey and Cranberry combo on dutch crunch, while Doug ordered the Ultimate BLT Club.

Hi, Dougie!

It took every fiber of my being to stop and snap this photo
 Let me just clarify that there is absolutely nothing little about Little Lucca's sandwiches; they do not skimp on any of the meat and bones, and one sandwich really is good for at least two meals. For less than $10 you will get a sandwich the size and weight of your forearm. Nope, Little Lucca does not play around. They make your sandwiches so mouth-wateringly delicious, that you want to slowly savor each and every bite, but also devour it as fast as you can because you just want more and more. I made sure to get my Turkey Cranberry with everything (except onions, yuck!), including their signature pesto garlic sauce. Now, I must warn you that no matter how many times you brush your teeth afterwards, or how many Altoids you pop, you will reek of garlic. But, don't let this stop you from having them lather that baby on. Your mouth and your tummy will be smiling for days after getting a taste of that special sauce. So, if you go to Lucca's on a date, I suggest you both order your sandwiches with the sauce, to insure that neither one of you will notice as the garlic seeps through your pores and fills the air.  After finishing half of our sandwiches, Doug and I headed to the movies to watch Fast Five and Bridesmaids. Has anyone seen either of these two movies? Fast Five was amazing and definitely solidified my unfaltering girlhood crush on Paul Walker. Those baby blues will make anyone's heart just melt. Bridesmaids was absolutely hilarious. I laughed so hard that I had tears rolling down my face at one point. All in all, it was a really good day. I am looking forward to many more food and movie combos in the future.

Have a beautiful weekend, loves! Don't forget to enter my giveaway!

  20. Wooow my mouth is literally watering, the only thing stopping me from making a sandwich right now is that it's 12 at night and frankly, i'm dieting ^^ probably high in calorie content too.
    The texture of the bread looks so delish and moist.
