Sarge's Pastrami

jfmirabella | Apr 16, 2010 07:42 AM

Finally went to Sarge"s deli last night. Had the Pastrami. A few observations: The On Rye sandwich was much larger than Katz and it was cheaper. I noticed immediately that the Pastrami was machine sliced. It was to thin and distinguishing the taste was difficuly. The hand sliced has a better chew and its seems to bring out a better flavor. This Pastrami had a good taste that seem different with each bite. I requested fatty.
I don't know if its that much better to make a permanent change. In the past I have often critized Katz. Sarge's comes closest. The pickles were over sour and mushy.
The high light of the meal was the free Chopped Liver. Its was delicious and had the taste of a fine pate.
