Here's another famous sandwich from Nawlins called a "Po-Boy".

A "dressed" po' boy has lettuce, tomato and mayonaise; pickles and onion are optional. Non-seafood po' boys will also usually have mustard, but the customer is expected to specify whether they want "hot" or "regular" - the former being a coarse grained Creole mustard (such as that produced by Zatarain's) and the latter being American yellow mustard. Mother's Restaurant, a popular lunch stop in New Orleans on Poydras St., uses shredded green cabbage rather than lettuce for its dressed sandwiches.



A shrimp Po-Boy



or a fried Oyster Sandwich...mmm...mmm...good. I can feel my arteries hardening up as I type.  ;D

Well, I love me a fried oyster Po'Boy. 
Tuna salad and provolone with lettuce, onion, and  oil& vinegar on a good sub roll is also a favorite.

But for me, the ultimate favorite is old fashioned 'navel' or 'plate' pastrami that has spent a full 2 or 3 hours in the steam cabinet, hand sliced and piled on rye bread, as served at places like Katz's Deli on the lower east side of New York City, Langer's in LA...and lately,  at a great old fashioned retro styled place called Irving's Deli in Livingston, NJ.   

Places that really do pastrami or corned beef  right are becoming rarer and rarer.
You haven't ever really had pastrami (or corned beef, for that matter) unless you get it from one of these 'old school'  Jewish delicatessens..that 2 or 3 hours the meat spends in the steam cabinet makes the meat meltingly tender. 
Also, if a deli brags about having lean pastrami or corned beef, turn around and walk out. 
It ain't the real deal.

Oh Yea!

That is a fine sandwich.

I've had the real deal at The Reading Terminal Market in Philly layered on some great Jewish Rye Bread.

Great Sandwich indeed!

Oh yeah!! Jewish deli sandwiches are hard to find. There is Sardi's in NYC, Awesome. Hymie s here in Philly.

My brother was just telling me about a place in NJ called The Kibbutz Room. We are going there next week. With a name like that it has to be good.
