Flying from the East Coast to Hawaii on United, I can connect in various places....and even though Houston is the shortest route & only one stop in my case....I choose the longer flight with two stops & connect in SFO...so I can have dinner @ SFO airport....LOL! There are many great eateries at the airport, but my all time favorite is Emporio Rulli....which makes THE BEST paninis ever! If you like roasted eggplants, then this is the place for you! Their "Favorito" Panini is bursting with flavor, oozing with molten mozzarella and has just the right size and texture. Wrapped in parchment paper & cut into two halfs...it is the perfect take-out for your flight ahead (and smells so good when opened that once I could have sold it to someone on the plane for $50!). The ladies at the counter are super sweet and the manager is AWESOME! I was there last week and witnessed a young lady needing her layover voucher applied to a previous purchase...the manager was there in no time, was super friendly and handled the transaction quickly, professionally and very gracefully (compared to the two female jerks over at Boudin that blew the very same young lady off)! I also love their beet & goat cheese salad & their wonderful dressing. Never expected that kind of quality of kiosk food....but after reading up on Emporio Rulli I'm not surprised....just sad that it took me so long to find them! I hope my "Favorito" will be yours soon too! :)
