East Coast West

I went to East Coast West Deli in San Francisco last week, and although I thought my pastrami sandwich was pretty good, I wasn't impressed enough to be in a rush to go back, since it was pretty small, and cost about nine bucks, plus $5.30 BART from Berkeley, plus $4 cable car roundtrip (I mean, sure, I like riding a cable car as much as anyone, but it's not too cheap for a starving student). The next day, I went to Saul's in Berkeley, which I liked more. I had brisket at Saul's, which is easier to get right than pastrami, but still. We also had a great waitress at Saul's, and the counter guy at East Coast West wasn't very interested in selling us food. Neither place was perfect, but for a similar price, I thought Saul's was better.
