Beat this shaved ham and swiss sandwich - 7 bucks

Pardon that I've not attached this to a previous thread.

What does great white bread, cold crispy leaf lettuce, heirloom tomatoes, a massive mouth stretching not too salty pile of house cured, cold razor thin shaved ham, house made mayonnaise (YES), swiss cheese, dill pickle slices, and basic yellow mustard get you? Just possibly the best ham sandwich you've ever had. I've read it here on another post recommending an out of towner to avoid eating sandwiches in Austin. I understand the historical perspective (especially re: delis), but now, some of the BEST sandwiches can be found here. And for me at least three are at Melvin's. After about 15 pastrami or corned beef ruebens I broke from tradition and tried the ham and cheese. best ever. If someone for God's sake though would start up an actual solid kosher deli with authentic Matzoh Ball Soup?? C'mon, what's up with that hole in our food scene?
