Supreme Sandwiches (and More) at Mendocino Farms

Carolyn Jung | February 22, 2018 | Food & Drink Story Eat and Drink

Mendocino Farms aims to put the wow factor back in-between two slices of bread. The family-owned Southern California-based company, beloved for its slew of gourmet sammies, has opened its first Northern California outpost in The Pruneyard.

The family-friendly restaurant sports a foosball table, cornhole and a kids’ chalkboard corner. Favorites include Not So Fried Mary’s Chicken, a toasted ciabatta piled with roasted Mary’s free-range chicken rolled in krispies, tomatoes, pickled red onions, mustard pickle slaw and herb aioli; and Kurobuta pork belly banh mi, a panini-pressed ciabatta with caramelized pork belly, housemade pickled daikon and carrots, chili aioli and jalapenos.

Salad lovers are not forgotten—not with the likes of avocado & quinoa superfood ensalada, brimming with butter lettuce, romaine, kale, cotija, black bean-corn-jicama succotash and housemade “krunchies” (fried quinoa, millet, heirloom red rice and nutritional yeast).

There’s also an on-trend Rescued Vegetable Burger, made with repurposed vegetable pulp made into a patty, then garnished with beet Thousand Island, tofu cheese, tomatoes and bread-and-butter pickles. Save room for artisan soft-serve, as well as a selection from four craft beers and four wines on tap. Look for locations to come in San Jose’s Santana Row in late January, as well as San Mateo and San Francisco this spring.
1875 S. Bascom Ave., Ste. 440, Campbell, 408.385.8218
