Katz's To Go??

allisonteal May 22, 2007 03:07 PM

I am visiting New York for only a couple of days and trying to get in all my favorites. I was planning on picking up a couple of sandwiches to go for our plane ride home - do you think they will last or would it be better to get the meat platter and bread on the side??

    The rye bread used for the pastrami sandwiches deteriorate pretty quickly and will not survive long for very long.

      I can never eat more than half a sandwich, so I take home leftovers whenever I have deli. Ask for (or buy) extra rye bread, and change the bread on the sandwich when you get home. I haven't tried this with Katz's pastrami, but I also usually pop just the meat (no bread) in the microwave for a few seconds to get it warm before putting it on the new bread. Add some mustard and enjoy!

        I usually get them as take out and have no problems after 45 minutes or so. Just make sure you get the mustard on the side, I also don't order my sandwiches with rye bread

      It's a great sandwich to go, although you may be attacked by hungry passengers on your flight <g>. Get the pastrami on Club instead of on Rye.
