Great Sandwiches in White Plains, NY

A friend turned me on to the Royal Scarlet Deli at 99 E. Post Rd at the intersection of Cromwell Rd in White Plains a few weeks ago. They make incredible sandwiches. They have around 40-50 different types, hot and cold. One board has thirty listed, then there are around ten breakfast sandwiches, and a dozen or so daily and weekly specials. All sound very tasty and the half dozen I have tried are HUGE.
On a roll they cost around $4.50-5.00 and a wedge costs around $7-8.50. The roll sandwiches are so big that they have more meat and fixings than most wedges. I could barely finish one. The wedges are so big (high and wide and long) that you cannot eat more than 1/2 at a sitting, and that's pushing it. Seriously. They put POUNDS of meat and stuff on each sandwich.
My roll yesterday had three inches of warmed Virginia Ham covered with melted cheese, hot and sweet peppers, dijon and honey mustard, and all the other fixings...
All the cold cuts are top quality. The tuna salad was one of the best plain and simple tuna salads I have ever had, then it was layed on top with thick slices of fresh creamy mozzarella. Two bigs guys shared one wedge between us and were stuffed.
They even have several different types of Italian combos depending upon what you like, mild or spicy, cold or hot.
I know I am raving about this place... because it really is that good. It's in a class by itself. It's better than the great Sage Deli in Mamaroneck (which is now my #2 pick for sandwiches) or Dantes on Central Ave in White Plains/Hartsdale or the deli on Fort Hill Rd in Yonkers near Central Ave, (the one near those huge apartment buildings overlooking Best Buy,) and it blows away Zuccarellis on Rt 22 in Eastchester.

thanks for the heads up! I've been in that neighborhood a bunch of times for the two mexican places just down the road. Next time I'll head up for a sandwich. I've been craving a good reuben...
for another great deli in white plains, try cityline deli on north broadway (right next to the sunoco). they make a terrific sandwich. i agree though, royal scarlet is great. try their chili!
