Bay Cities Italian Deli: The Godmother of All Sandwiches

I got A. hooked on Bay Cities Italian Deli during one of her last trips to Cali, so we went there for lunch today.  I ordered one of my favorite Bay Cities sandwiches (tied with the Poorboy), the Godmother: genoa salami, mortadella, coppacola, ham, proscuitto and provolone with the works: hot and mild pepper salad, pickles, mustard, lettuce, tomatoes, Italian dressing on top of a freshly baked crusty, chewy roll.  It's one of my favorite sandwiches in the world; a perfect combination of lots of meat, some heat and sour from the pepper salad and pickles, tangy mustard and fresh lettuce and tomatoes.  They went a little overboard today on the Italian dressing, making it a little messy and soggy, but it was still pretty darn near perfect.  Not surprisingly, Bay Cities was absolutely overflowing with people at lunch today, given that it was a beautiful sunny 75 degree day in Santa Monica, but we bypassed the huge wait by placing our order online, and had our sandwiches out on the patio with a refreshing Reed's ginger ale.
