Pastrami Chowdown...Part One!...Memphis Minnie's

ChowFun_derek | Jul 6, 200604:41 AM     18

Four hungry dogs.ventured to the lower Haight (SF) to experience Pastrami Wednesdays at Memphis Minnie's...if You were expecting "Katz's West" , you'd be dissapointed! MM's pastrami is cooked in BBQ sauce!...No mustard here...it was a Pastrami 'Sloppy Joe" ("Sloppy Yossel"?!) a little dry and hard in places...My luck, I got there after Cyn had ordered hers, so had the advantage of a taste and a critique...so I ordered "Fatty Brisket" it was the best brisket I've had there... moist, smokey and delicious...the bean accompaniment were little firm beads, and would have benefitted from more cooking (they probably were perfect for dinner).
I'll let the others' speak of their own culinary experiences...I ordered fried grit sticks for the table, which came with a forgettable sauce but were good as is...The pecan pie, was cold, from the fridge, a little hard in the crust, and muddy filling...whole pecans and over-whipped.. but home made whipped cream was the topping......
The brisket ..heavenly, the pastrami....never again..
The next round of "Pastrami Passion" to be announced!
