With Russian style dressing on rye bread. $16.95
Langer’s Deli, Los Angeles CA

This was a solid sandwich. The pastrami was delicious as was the rye bread. I don’t think it was the best Jewish deli I’ve been to on the West Coast, but it was definitely on the better end.

Everything bagel with cream cheese – Wise Sons Jewish Delicatessen

This bagel was unlike any other bagel I’ve had in San Francisco. I don’t know, I’m not a New York bagel expert, but some people find Wise Sons bagel comparable to their precious NYC bagels. My opinion is that this bagel was very good. I loved the plentiful amount of seeds that created a thick crunchy, crusty layer on the outside. The interior wasn’t doughy or dense like some other bagels I’ve had that I didn’t like. For me, this bagel was a winner!

This sandwich was delicious and HUGE! But I guess you would expect a humongous sandwich for almost twenty bucks. The pastrami was SO flavorful and beautifully smoked. The mustard had a great tang. The rye bread wasn’t my favorite since I’ve had better elsewhere. This was definitely a two meal sandwich!

Pickles - Katz Delicatessen
Pickles. Complimentary
These pickles were great with a very interesting texture that I hadn’t experienced before. It’s hard to describe but it definitely wasn’t that of your typical pickle.
