"Best Thing I Ever Ate"- Langer's Pastrami Sandwich

Going down the list of places and dishes, we decided to head over to the famous "Langer’s Deli" for their signature hot pastrami sandwich, which was under the category of "between bread" of course. Located across the way from Los Angeles’s historic MacArthur Park on the corner of Alvarado and 7th, Langer’s maintains it’s original facade of an old school deli.
The interior of the restaurant is just as warm and inviting as they come. From the traditional booths and deli counter, this place felt like we stepped back in time for a moment. We sat down, realized we didn’t need to even browse the menu and told our waiter we would make his life easy and order three #19s. I am pretty sure that this is an everyday occurrence for the eatery because the specialize and take great pride in their sandwiches especially the one that they are known for. Because of that, we did not have to wait long at all for our tower of taste to arrive. Stacked between two perfectly toasted rye bread slices, and spread with homemade sweet Russian dressing is the incredibly delicious juicy and tender pastrami slices, fresh coleslaw and lightly melted Swiss cheese with two small deli kosher pickles on the side. If that doesn’t make your mouth water, I don’t know what will. Even our residential vegetarian couldn’t wait to bite into the goodness that this brings. No need for fries or any other side items. This amazing sandwich stands entirely by itself and will leave you utterly satisfied. It can get a bit messy trying to bite into it with all the layers, but it is worth the many napkins we went through. So, best pastrami sandwich I have ever had? Oh yes indeed. If you like pastrami or just sandwiches in general, go and try this one and dare to argue with the fact that it is the best!

  1. Langer's Deli Sandwiches are wonderful, if not downright delicious...although, the area feels a little bit dubious.....but, if you are up to adventure, and if they are open at night, the rough and tumble neighborhood might be worth it for a good eat....and I did really enjoy my Pastrami Sandwich on toasted rye.
