Hi Baah Ben, and all fellow Roadfooders!
I have a NEW FAVORITE pastrami place now!!!!
I'm in L.A. on vacation right now, then it's off to Vegas tomorrow for 8 days.
My sister took me to Newark Airport for my flight, and on the way I suggested we stop at the new IRVING'S DELI in Livingston, NJ.
The pastrami was EXCELLENT; hand sliced, Katz's style..
the whole place is Katz's style; they even give you a "ticket" when you go in. I was so happy to see that my sis loved the pastrami, as well, as she's a VERY tough pastrami critic, as well.
(nothing came close to her Carnegie before Irving's)
So my NEW CURRENT ratings are as follows:
#3 HAROLD'S (yes, I had to actually drop Harold's down a notch after
having IRVING'S. Irving's was THAT good.
#4 CANTOR'S Deli in L.A. (just had it the other day)
Katz's did'nt agree with me on the few times I've tried it,
and I know that really goes against the grain! (since most ROADFOODER'S seem to LOVE Katz's)
ellen in L.A./Vegas
p.s. Stay tuned for my Irving's report, LA, Vegas, etc..
all coming up in late October..
