Bay Cities (http://www.baycitiesitaliandeli.com/door/) makes some of the best Italian sandwiches in town! I didn’t discover it until recently and I am still mourning all the years that I lived without this deli in my life. Plus, you can eat there for under $10! How can you beat that?
Read below some great advice by Elina Shatkin from the LA Weekly Blogs about what and how to order.
“Bay Cities Deli makes two dozen sandwiches but the one for which they’re most famous, and justifiably so, is The Godmother.
Stacked with no less than five kinds of cold cuts — that’d be Genoa salami, mortadella, coppacola, ham and prosciutto — and a slice of Provolone, the sandwich comes on dense, chewy, wonderful Italian bread. Should you get mustard and mayo on your sub? Purists will tell you — and we agree — NO! All it really needs is a dash of oil and vinegar. At Bay Cities, that means: order it with the works but ask for them to leave off the mayostard.
You can get it small ($6.25) or large ($8.15), but even the “small” Godmother is a mother. It’s cool and salty, dense and filling, and definitely one of the better Italian subs in town.”
(Psst… The Godmother is my favorite too!)
