Pal’s Take Away is back in SF! Fridays only, at Birba Wine Bar in Hayes Valley

Screen Shot 2018-03-01 at 1.49.00 PM

After a long absence from San Francisco, Pal’s is back!!! Every Friday at this place Birba, which is an acclaimed but modest little neighborhood wine bar full of nice people and plenty of places to sit and scarf a big ol’ Pal’s sandwich.

And despite the long absence, the sandwiches are just as we remember them — big and rich and full of character and freshness and fun flavors and textures. (And when we went a couple Fridays back, the menu was very familiar — 4 or 5 sandwiches to choose from, including that legendary Lao sausage.)

It’s 11:30am to 3ish, every Friday now. Birba is in Hayes Valley, yes, but think of it more like a 5-minute bike ride from Zeitgeist:

IMG_20180211_113001

Jeff from PizzaHacker called to tell us the news. Here are the facts:

  • It’s Sundays from 10:30am to 1pm for now (but they hope to expand those hours, and do Saturdays too)
  • They’re making just 150 bagels each Sunday for now (so please don’t order a dozen just yet)
  • Jeff was making bagels even before he started got into the pizza biz (so he knows what he’s doing)
  • Coffee and mimosas are available too (very important)
  • The menu is short but exciting (check it out after the jump)

Thanks, Jeff!

Biographical Info:

"I joked that living in the Mission would be the end of me. And there were nights where it felt like the case.

One night I went out with my friend Allan to the bar that no one goes to on 16th Street, where I lost half my drink and money on the dance floor. Later we skated down 16th to Evelyn Lee, where I fell off my board and landed on my head as the 22 bus sped past behind me. A sobering moment. At the bar, I sulked and nursed my wounds until Allan put on Amy Winehouse’s 'Valerie.' We danced, he dipped me, and I felt better."
