I’ll have what she’s having… and then some!!!

So, we’re hanging out at Katz’s Delicatessen, the legendary deli in New York City’s East Village that’s been serving it up since the 1880’s. Man, the food here’s so good it made Meg Ryan cream her jeans, so you KNOW we gotta check it out!!!!

While there’s no shortage of deli classics here, the sandwich to get is pastrami on rye, with mustard. Picture some of the best beef brisket you’ve ever tasted, brined in that pink salt, with just enough bread to hold it together… This meat just melts in your mouth, bro!!!!

Pair this with some housemade pickles to kick it up a notch. The dills are decent, but I prefer the fresh ones…

And we’ve also got a nice helping of creamy potato salad. Nothing wrong with that at all!

Now, this food is NOT cheap — the sandwich itself will set ya back 26 bucks — but it’s some of the best smoked meat I’ve had this side of Texas. And I didn’t even hafta line up down the street for it!

(There are definitely lines at the meat-cutting stations, but with 6-8 cutters on duty, and free samples to tide you over while you wait, it wasn’t too painful when I was there.)
