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.

Mmm, this was a great tasty lunch for under ten bucks! The pastrami reuben was delicious and the choucroute au champagne was a nice twist. The French onion soup was also yummy and perfect for the cold day.

Geez, this sandwich was large! I love corned beef and pastrami so I was in heaven. I don’t think I really needed the macaroni salad, but I ate it for good measure, lol!

Say Hey sandwich – Ike’s Place

Say Hey sandwich - Ike's Place
Bacon, pastrami, swiss cheese, lettuce, and tomato, dirty on Dutch crunch bread. $8.98
Ike’s Place, San Francisco CA

I will reiterate that the sandwiches at Ike’s are delicious! They’re quite substantial too, but I guess they should be at this higher price range.

Noms! This place rocks and the workers are pretty cool too. The pastrami is SO delicious as is their rye bread. I wish the bread was thicker, but that’s only because I want more of it, hehe.

Wow, this sandwich was a true MONSTER! It was really two sandwiches stacked up into one. The meats were SO delciious and the rye bread was light and fluffy. I love Sherman’s!

Kung pao pastrami – Mission Chinese Food

Kung pao pastrami Mission Chinese Food
Tender pastrami with explosive chilies, celery, potato, green onions, roasted peanuts, and garnished with sesame seeds. $11
Mission Chinese Food, San Francisco

This dish is even hotter than their Ma Po Tofu!  Perhaps it’s all the dried chili flakes that practically coat every piece in the dish.  But it is VERY delicious.  It has a wonderful smokiness and the variety in textures is absolutely fabulous.  Another go-to dish of mine from Mission Chinese Food.
