    The Bacon, Egg  & Cheese Bagel from The Bagel Store in Brooklyn looks more like a Waffle.
    Never heard of or seen a "Cragel" (Half bagel, half croissant) before.
    Has anyone ever had one?
    What's it like?

    If I was in NYC having a bacon, egg & cheese breakfast sandwich, it would be on a NYC hard roll. If I wanted a bagel, it would be with cream cheese. What does a guy from Chicago know about eating in NYC; he gets his pastrami from LA.

    That dry roast pork from Tony Luke's is kind of embarrassing to me, and I feel it's not representative of my hometown. It's just a very popular name. Others may feel differently. I'd pick the one from New York over that to eat (especially right now).

    Yeah, I found that suspicious too. Pastrami from LA. Nah.

    I agree! Bacon Egg Cheese on a Hard Roll & Cream Cheese on a Bagel, especially one that looks like a waffle!
    Would grab one or the other on my way from the Port Authority to my office at 52nd & Broadway every AM!

    Before discounting Langer's for simply being in Los Angeles it might be enlightening to read its history.

    I'll file this under all the other multitude of so called "best of  lists", once it goes thru the shredder.

    I was going to say - and I don't even eat pastrami or corned beef - Langer's has been around for ages. I don't know why I never ate there when I lived out that way, but I guess we mostly stuck to the Valley. Now I regret not having something there. These places are, as we all know, a dying breed.

    By dry do you mean it hasn't been dipped, or is the pork itself typically somewhat dry?  Are there variations of dry and wet like one could get with a Chicago beef sandwich or a Philippe's sandwich in L.A.?

    I was blown away that Mars Cheese Castle was on the list. I didn't know they served sandwiches.

    You can ask for it wet, SC. But it's not like a French Dip where they dip it -- as far as I know. When I go to DiNic's in Reading Terminal Market in Philadelphia (which I highly recommend to the entire nation), I just say "wet" and whichever they make for me - pork, roast beef or brisket - it's always moist meat to begin with, and they always wet it. But if it's too wet, you can't really enjoy that wonderful roll.
     
    I might -- MIGHT -- give Tony Luke's another chance next time we go to the South Philadelphia Ikea (which should be before the end of this month). The original location is just up the street from there. Always a line.

    In the Adam Richman sandwich show (mentioned in another thread) he picked the roast pork/broccoli rabe/sharp provolone from DiNic's as the best sandwich in the country.  I would sure like to try one.

    They have a full pub/bar type of menu with a few specials and the grilled cheese.

    You would love it, Lisa! And Mr. Hoffman, too! The atmosphere of the whole place is bustling, and it's nice to just sit at the counter or grab a table and sit down after they give you your sandwich. It's been awhile, let me tell you - too long - since I've been down there. And yes, I know it's just over the river from us, but - it's calling me. And I still remember the brisket sandwich from last time. I wish Cheesewit could put together another tour of the Reading Terminal Market. My daughter actually wanted to, but those plans kind of fell through.
