Good white sandwich bread SF mission

it’s tomato season and I’m craving blt sandwiches. I got good tomatoes and bacon, but I’m not sure where to find good quality white sandwich bread, preferably in the mission. For a blt I don’t want sprouted multi grain, whole wheat, sourdough, levain, etc

Kenji likes to use Japanese shokupan. Does duc loi have any Asian brands of white bread? If not,How about a loaf of white bread from Manila Oriental closer to Excelsior.

Acme pain de mie?

Huh, are they similar to the other asian white breads found at like Tous Les Jours (Burlingame/Milbrae is the closest I can think of), 85 Degrees (Daly City/Serramonte), Paris Baguette (uh… multiple now, but I keep thinking of the one on Gellert across from Phils) or Sheng Kee?

I thought of craftsman and wolves Japanese style milk bread, but their website says only weekends. An East Asian style white bread would be perfect, but not convenient . But thank you!

I thought of that, too. I wanted to stay in the mission, but may need to travel. There used to be a good Pullman loaf at bi-rite that was discontinued or I guess went out of business. Can’t remember the name. Thank you!

Oh I was just thinking that Acme is pretty widely distributed that perhaps one of the Mission grocers may carry the pain de mie. Like Bi-Rite, or close by, Rainbow.

BTW, try the Valencia WF. WF usually has a pretty big selection of Acme breads.
