On nice days I like to take a walk at lunch. Up near the Moscone Center and Yerba Buena Gardens is Split Bread. Split Bread is the artisan sandwich place started by the owners of Mixt Greens, another of my favorite SF places. Both places source locally and use organic ingredients.
I usually get a salad…the Split Cobb is really good with fresh avocado and rotisserie chicken. But today I got the Braised Short Rib sandwich with the side kale salad because I have not been able to get my favorite green kale drink all week. Both were excellent, the kale salad is fresh and crunchy (not chewy!) with pecorino and pine nits. SO good! The sandwich came on an english muffin and was juicy and delicious.
It was a very filling lunch that left me feeling energized afterward instead of comatose! Recommend. Be aware though, that the line can be very long. Especially if there is a convention in town.
And the best part? I walk through this area on the way back to work. It’s a beautiful day in San Francisco.
