Right before our journey up to Napa, Ms. Lin and I stopped off at Deli Board for a bite. I was dropped off to pick up the sandwich and let me just say that they are truly a hole-in-the-wall in every sense! If there wasn't a bunch of people gathered outside, I would have walked right past it. I tried to walk in and they stopped me because there is no inside except a kitchen! =D It is really a pick up and go place. Also I'd HIGHLY recommend that you call ahead of time to order because there tends to be a long wait on orders since they can be swamped or have big orders to deal with. You might end up waiting for 20-45 mins for a sandwich if you don't call ahead. They also deliver! I am hoping to the apt so I can get these yummy sandwiches all the time!
Everyone talks about their corned beef sandwiches so I had to try one of their more popular sandwiches. They recommended the Mish with Corned Beef, Jalapenos, Bacon, Grilled Onions, Mayo, and Brown Mustard on a French Bread ($9). The jalapenos added a nice kick to the sandwich, but it is all about the bacon for me. I probably should have ate this sandwich first because the Paulette Chicken Salad Sandwich was so tasty to me that this sandwich didn't quite hit the mark. All I could think about was turning the car around to get more of that delicious chicken sandwich.
The Paulette ($8) has Chicken Salad, Bacon, Muenster Cheese, Pepperoncini Blend, and Board Sauce all on their Dutch Crunch. This was simply deli-licious! ^_^ I still dream and drool about this sandwich. The perfect crunch from the nice layer of bacon mixed with all the savory components. I was licking any sauce that was trying to get away from me. This sandwich was freshly toasted and the cheese was oozing out. If you know me, I am a sucker for mouth-watering melted cheese! Every bite was a little bit of heaven from me. Bacon, cheese, and chicken! Oh my!
They have yet to establish a sit down store but for now they are working diligently at this locale. Space is limited for them but they crank out the sandwiches! They started off as a catering business but they are exploring their options. With the sandwich craze on the rise, they are a perfect candidate! I will be back my love, this Friday! O=D
