Our first stop is a family-run sandwich spot where their special sauces add an extra kick to their extensive list, at Lou's Cafe in San Francisco.

Lastly, we follow the fragrant aroma of exotic Mediterranean flavors and spices, served up in modern Portuguese style at LaSalette Restaurant in Sonoma.
