Left Coast Smoke = BBQ Sandwiches + Bars

June 4, 2009

New To The Bay, a Mission residing Kansas City native bent on bicycle justice, gives her review of Left Coast Smoke, a Mission bar-hopping BBQ sandwich troupe:

I was sitting inside Shotwell’s, my regularly mentioned favorite bar, when one of the bartenders, Dean, mentioned that he was thinking about starting a food cart. Barbecue, he says. Pulled pork sandwiches to start, with slaw and a couple of different sauces.

I became entirely too excited. Way, way too excited. The barbecue options – good, solid sandwiches with pulled, well-smoked meat, drenched in sauce – are few and far between in my neck of the woods. There are a couple of restaurants on Mission that call themselves barbecue, and I certainly mean no offense to their establishments, but they haven’t been what I was looking for. I wanted barbecue, and Dean was offering me my chance….

I’ll let the photos speak for themselves. A sandwich with a generous portion of meat, your choice of sauce and a side of slaw will run you $6. You can track them on twitter at @leftcoastsmoke. Good guys, good food. And my answer to beer+barbecue in the Mission.

    Hey, thanks! I wouldn’t lie to you: I legitimately enjoy it as much as I seem to be exaggerating about it.

    Hey Jen, you forgot to mention the AMAZING mustard sauce!
    The pulled pork is absolutely delicious, the sauces perfectly complement the marinade on the meat, and the proportions are perfect, but it’s the mustard sauce that makes me want to Bond-girl style trick Dean into giving me the plans for the nuclear…I mean recipe

    Hey, I didn’t forget to mention it… it’s in there… but I did forget to mention that people go homicidal for it. I’ll distract John, you go Bond-girl on Dean.
