Katz’s Deli, New York

Katz's Deli

“Send a salami to your boy in the army…”

A buddy of mine is off to New York for some sightseeing and I’ve given him a few restaurant recommendations. Among them is “Katz’s Deli”, an iconic sandwich shop situated in the Lower East Side. It’s probably more famous for it’s appearance in the 1989 movie “When Harry Met Sally” (remember the orgasm scene?) than the amazing sandwiches and hot dogs it sells. Forget the Meg Ryan connection and the celebrity photos which adorn the walls, get down to Katz’s Deli for the food.

Pastrami Sandwich

This place buzzes all day long. The queues are long, the atmosphere is a little chaotic, but trust me, it’s worth it. Huge, spicy pastrami sandwiches are the house speciality, slathered with mustard and accompanied by a large dill pickle. Makes you feel like you’ve truly arrived.
