Our sarnies ready to go!

The second in our series of food reviews along San Bruno Ave in the Portola heads to the White Palace on the corner of Silver and San Bruno. It might not initially be obvious why we would choose to go to what seems to be just a plain old liquor store. But as soon as you walk …
