Unlike a sand witch, a sandwich doesn't have the power to turn men into sand and sand into poisoned glass. A sandwich can cast a devastating spell on hunger pains with today's Groupon: for $4, you get any salad or sandwich at Lettuce Sandwich Shop in Mountain View (up to an $8 value, including tax). Every sandwich includes a free cookie, a relic practice from the Middle Ages when knights would refuse to do anything, including eat, unless there was a reward involved.
Shuffle up a deck of carbs stacked with premium meats and veggies on fresh-baked breads from Boudin Bakery in San Francisco. Lettuce Sandwich Shop's menu provides classic cold cuts such as ham or salami served on your choice of sourdough, sliced wheat, marble rye, and more. Likewise, expand your acronymic understanding with a B.L.A.T sandwich, composed of bacon, lettuce, avocado, and tomato on triple-decker toast. Vegetarians can opt for the Haight Ashbury, with cucumbers, avocado, and a choice of cheese. All sandwiches come with a slathering of special garlic sauce, but each creation can be customized to taste. Have a friendly sandwich wizard hold the sauce, or request the less popular—hold the sandwich.
Salads start with house ingredients—diced tomatoes, diced cucumbers, raisins, shredded cheese, croutons, red onions, and bacon bits—and may be upgraded to carnivorous creations with marinated chicken or pushed to the peak of pescetarian potential with tuna. To achieve the heartiest salads, combine forces with a friend and sink your meatball sub into his or her uncharted lettuce trenches. Each diner can sandwich up to three Groupons, using one layer per tasty visit.
Valid at the Mountain View location only.
Yelpers rate Lettuce Sandwich Shop an average of four stars:
- Seeing that they have a SF theme with all of their specialty sandwiches, I gravitated to my personal favorite part of the city - The Mission. The Mission (Sandwich) has Chicken, Pepper Jack and Baja Sauce. – Nick B.
- One thing that comes across is that these guys know how to make sandwiches...Doesn't seem like a huge deal, but it's cool that they put out the effort to make sure the customer got a good sandwich. – Adam R.
