Salami, Pastrami, Corned Beef at Katz, New York

There is a deli cafeteria in Lower East Side, New York, which survived three depressions, numerous recessions, and two World Wars. It is known for serving the best salami sandwiches and their pastrami and corned beef sandwich is also the biggest and best in the region. Many people will admit that it is to die for. But looking at it, I will probably stuff myself to death just to finish one on my own! It is huge and the pictures will tell it all!

The place I’m talking about is Katz’s Delicatessen at Ludlow Street, which opened in 1888, and is loved by many locals, tourists and people all over the world.

We are lucky that it is located on the same street as our hotel and a mere 3 minutes walk. We had it for breakfast and it was way too heavy for us! No wonder it is less crowded in the morning compared to in the evening when it is always fully packed.


We tried their Corned Beef sandwich that is mainly made up of a huge pile of juicy cured meat in between rye bread with mustard sauce. J loves every bite of it! The meat is perfect, but even a Carnivorous person like me can’t finish it! Thank God we only bought one to share!



One of my unglamourous moments.

    This reminds me of the salt beef sandwich from a bistro at Selfridges in London. Yumz!
