Sandwiches in Hollywood

I've been working in Hollywood for over a year now, on a constant search for a solid deli/sandwhich option that is not one of the chains or a counter at a supermarket.

As a transplant from NY, I'm craving a big delicous sandwich--in the vain of a Jewish or Italian deli. That said, I love variety, so any reccomendations for great take out sandwhich shops from roast beef to banh mi would be appreciated.

  1. It's nowhere close to Hollywood, but if you're really craving a sandwich enough to drive for it, go to Bay Cities Deli on Lincoln Blvd. in Santa Monica. They make the best sandwich I've ever had, bar none.

      Been there--and that is an excellent sandwich.

      That's exactly the kind of thing I'm looking for around here...

    2. Not exactly what you're looking for, but you might try Tortas de Mexico. Think there's one on Vine south of Sunset, in a strip mall on the west side of the street.

      1. The Canyon Country Store On Laurel Cyn has an excellent Sandwich counter. The pastrami & corned beef with colslaw on a french ro11. Yum.

        1. Keeping it in Hollywood (I'm such a spoil-sport!), you might try either of two deli's: Goldblatts, on the north side of Sunset a block or so east of Crescent Heights, and Victor's on Bronson, just north of Franklin.

          Victor's has two "stores" -- the liquor store, which is also a deli; and the restaurant next door.

            Greenblatt's, not Goldblatt's I believe. I like their melts. I've also become a big fan of Cheebo's sandwiches. The Cheebo Supreme as well as the Porkwich are very good pressed. Be forewarned, they're very meat-intensive.

          2. Sahag's Basturma on Sunset. excellent Suojuk and Basturma sandwiches.
