Recently I wrote about Langer’s Deli in L.A., which makes what has been called the best pastrami sandwich in America. Charles Bentley asks:
“What about a ‘best pastrami in the IE’ competition? Personally, The Hat was always a big winner with me, although others love Farmer Boys, Grinder Haven, Burger Town (the one on Archibald in Ontario) and even Togos. And is it just strictly pastrami as in pastrami sandwiches, or is it also pastrami as found on pastrami burgers? One friend tells me its a completely different requirement, like the difference between bacon for breakfast and bacon for a bacon cheeseburger.
“Its just something else to heat up your nights and your readers imaginations — not to mention the heartburn, oy!”
I’m a fan of the Grinder Haven pastrami and I admire The Hat. Haven’t tried the pastrami at the other places and have never tried a pastrami burger. Readers, what are your favorites?
