Deli Fever

The other day at work I decided to call up my dad, per usual when broke and wanting lunch, and ask if he wanted to go get something to eat with me. He works over by the Performing Art Center in Costa Mesa, so I drove over to pick him up and he decided that we should go try Jerry’s Deli around the corner. I am so glad we did because let me tell you the food was delicious, and I want to come back because the menu was so extensive I was having a really hard time even choosing what I was going to eat in the first place. We decided to split a New York style (according to my pops that meant more meat) Reuben sandwich, with both Pastrami and Corned Beef. Yes I know a heart-attack on a plate, but it was to die for. The rye bread was grilled to perfection and then topped with sauerkraut, swiss cheese, hot pastrami and corned beef. YUM! It came with a side of thousand island, double yum, and we also decided to splurge and our side was half onion rings half fries. Even splitting this we left some. The sandwich also comes with a side of coleslaw, but personally I am not a fan of coleslaw so I left that alone. Everything was super good, the meat wasn’t too fatty and the sandwich itself just melted in your mouth. The fries were good and the onion rings were delicious. I asked for a side of ranch, a necessary sauce in my book, and the ranch they had was good, nothing to write home about, but not bad. This was definitely a hit for me. The atmosphere was really interesting too, it had a bunch of old theater posters hung all around and was set up diner style. It definitely had character and I would want to come back and try it again sometime, maybe even for dinner seeing as they had a full bar up front. This was a success in my book, thanks for the lunch pops!
