Worthy delis in OC?
Friends coming in from other republics (NorCal) are wanting to hit some great delis while here. My OC deli knowledge is wanting. My gut tells me the selection won't be huge.
ZIP code or style (Jewish, NY, Italian, etc.) unimportant. Quality will be the main concern. Any ideas? TIA, 'hounds.
Personally, the only Jewish Deli/Restaurant in OC that I find workable is Benjies in Tustin.
Good Corned Beef, good pastrami, good pickles.
And not some big name chain like Jerry's with big prices.

I'm no deli expert at all and I really base my knowledge of deli meats by comparing if it's better than Subway or not. I've only seen one deli around where I live and that's Frisco's Deli in Yorba Linda. I had a good sandwich there (Italian mix) and it seemed to attract a lot of customers. So that's all I know but these other delis sound promising.
Angelo's Italian Deli in on Main Street in Seal Beach is very good. They have a decent assortment of meats and cheeses available and they sell excellent deli sandwiches using the. They also have a good selection of imported Italian ingredients. I was even able to get type "00" flour for making pasta there.
