Maybe they got pages in the cookbook stuck together, like when they made the trifle on 'Friends' -- 'It tastes like feet!'

Joe & BB:  Wow!  Great pix of some great-looking food.   It was time that we had another Roadfoodie visit to Harold's.

Paul - I sometimes go back and forth, but the Carnegie is always number one or number two for me.

I finally have come to the realization that I like machine sliced pastrami best and therefore, I'm going Carnegie, Harold's and then Katz's.  Hey, try all three and see what you think...Couldn't hurt.....

Brad_Olson, I took my leftover piece of that Monster home and weighed it.  The leftovers were 3.8 pounds.  That puppy had to weigh in at about 8 pounds, oy vey.
  
 


Oy, I'm terrible at math, but are you estimating you ate 4.2 pounds in one sitting? Wow.

Benzee -  We would have loved to have met you there.  

Personally, I think Joe did not want to share that Mt. Etna special  with anyone..I know Joe looked at me real funny when I asked if I could try a slice of that mass of meat.  He told me no way!

MD - We kid about Harold's, but I gotta tell you..The pastrami was right on the $.  I'd never been there before.  I just always went to the Carnegie or Katz's.  Harold's was very, very good and I loved the portion size.....13 oz and his terrific pickle bar.  

I could have gone into Manhattan via mass transit in about the same amount of time as the drive down the NJ Pike to Exit 10, but now that I've been to Harold's, it will be a tougher decision next time.

Harold..U da man!  U really are....

Great report along with some hunger-inducing photographs and commentary.  Thanks for sharing this with us (he says as he plots to find a way to travel back from the next CT trip through NJ - how long a detour could it be?)

Paul - I sometimes go back and forth, but the Carnegie is always number one or number two for me.
 Carnegie, Harold's and then Katz's.  Hey, try all three and see what you think...Couldn't hurt.....

Make that FOUR places, as you should really get to Irving's in Livingston, NJ , as well , newbie PAUL4FOOD !
(u 2, Baah Ben,  next time )
 
YES, PAUL4FOOD, the CARNEGIE IS really THAT good !!!
(warning: once in a blue moon, I have received a pastrami sandwich that was "off", but most of the time, perfect)
I LOVE the way you've caught right on to the Roadfood SPIRIT, Paul4Food !!
All that deli talk we do has got you salivating, huh?!? (can't blame you!)
Remember, if delis come certified from either Ellen, Baah Ben, or Bruce and Sue, that is like the Good Housekeeping "seal of approval"....   (I'm VERY fussy with my pastrami!!)
 
I was just SO grateful to hear that THE Harold was THERE, as he almost always is, anyway...
it would've just been a REALLY BAD BREAK if he had just stepped out for an hour or so to run to the bank , whatever, and you had just missed him!
(after all that Roadfood talk we've done regarding Harold's Deli, and the legend himself, THE Harold, it sure is nice to see you shaking his hand, Baah Ben...!)
 
and it's real nice to see that your Trip Report got such a nice response...
 
p.s. You're right, Roadfooders, that eclair DOES look like it's got a piece of brisket wedged in !
(and I did'nt even notice that till you pointed it out....  lol)

Harold's was featured on Man vs Food last night. 
 
The segment highlighted His 10 pound sandwiches.  Harold is a marketing genius.  I can't think of anyone else who can get away with charging $42.00 for a sandwich
 
Now I'm getting hungry!

Because it's not really a sandwich!  It's a few pounds of meat to go, displayed between a couple of bread slices for your amusement before being wrapped up.
