Taking the Train Pt. 3... Langers...

Dommy! | May 15, 200506:23 PM

As we walked into the legendary Langers we were all very happy to see at 2pm in the afternoon it was busseling with customers….

Nevertheless, there was plenty of room for our group which was at its largest point of the trip numbering 15! Obviously we were reaching our absolute stuffed point, we all decided to share different versions of their luscious sandwiches. Two with Swiss, Two without and one Corned Beef… All version was smothered in Russian Dressing and Coleslaw… The Pastrami (although some suspected was not the extra special Hand Cut due to the size of our group) was as always heavenly. I actually perfered the version without Swiss as the cheese was just one more element to that hid that perfect peppery, greasy pastrami taste that langers has perfected. The corned beef although not as transcendent as the Pastrami was still top notch (especially in Langer’s super soft and flavorful Rye).

We also ordered their amazingly done fries (How they do them, I dunno! They honestly are crinkle cut frozen fries. But they get so crispy on the outside and so soft on the inside. One of our hounds described it perfectly, it was as if eating fried mashed potatoes) We also tried the New Pickles, which were so crunch and not as harsh as the usual pickles which come with the sandwiches.

Along with a couple of chocolate egg creams it was a nice change of pace from the latin foodfest we’d just had and our taste buds would soon be in for another spin as we all made it back on the train… on our way to Thai Town…
