Pastrami - What should it taste like?

HastaLaPasta | May 16, 200802:14 PM

Hi all - I just recently returned from lunch at a deli with a national reputation for great Pastrami sandwiches. And, much as I hate to say it, the taste of the pastrami itself was really not any different from an average store bought hot dog. Am I missing something? Is that how Pastrami is really supposed to taste? I was expecting something based on past experience with supposedly 'lesser' pastrami that would be a lot more peppery and have a somewhat spicy flavor to it. Am I expecting the wrong thing, or is this establishment's reputation somewhat undeserved?
