Molinari Deli – San Francisco

We enter Molinari Deli after trekking some ten blocks through Chinatown in the middle of the day. I instantly know this is the place we want to be; there’s a line and they mostly look like locals. We take a number and somehow squeeze through to the back, where there’s a no-frills bin of bread waiting for us. The process is simple – grab one and go to the counter when your number is called….
