Offshoot of Al’s Place in the Mission, Mediterranean focused casual menu. Bright and cheery space on Guerrero and 18th.
I only had the Smokey Brisket Sandwich, take out. Came in a pita with a lot of veggies and some egg salad (?).
The good: I hunted a piece of brisket out of the mass of vegetables to try on its own and the flavor was great, tender and smoky, excellent flavor.
The bad: The amount of brisket was miniscule, like 2 small pieces. Although the veggies were great, super fresh and some nice pickling, there was waayy too much going on and you mostly tasted veggies and egg salad. Also the sandwich is pretty small for $14. They add on a healthy SF mandate and also charge “packaging” fee of $1.00 for take out orders [which I assume was for the paper wrap the sandwich came in because there was no other packaging to speak of]. So with tip I’m $19 all in for a sandwich that left me hungry and craving more brisket.
They have a 1 Lb. brisket plate for $27 that I would get next time should I ever make it back.
