Family Members Introduction to this long ago established Restaurant:
" Larsen's " , 508 Bergen Avenue , , Jersey City.
The Lady and Gentleman, routinely visiting a Lady friend at a 'Assisted Cared for Home' every other Saturday , also have Lunch at the above mention Restaurant. A Turkey Sandwich , usually split between the two plus maybe a Soup for the Gent.
I am not a great Turkey Sandwich lover, especially at a Restaurant, but after the Owner (Greek) covincing me with " Just freshly roasted the Turkey this Morning " , I ordered , opting for a'Cup' of Lentil Soup ($ 1.35) as a primer.
Soup came in a 6/7 ounce 'Bowl' , and tasted terrific !!!!

Now to the Sandwich ($ 6.25), whole Wheat bread , Mayonnaise (asked for 'extra' and got a fair size Monkey Dish full of it) , Lettuce and Tomato slices ,
But the TURKEY , well , an unbelievable minimum eight (8) ounces hand carved , juicy and 'roasted' tasting white meat (65%) and very tender dark meat (35%) , this Sandwich was a Meal , and could have easely satisfied two peopel (and did) , but I had to be piggish and had the WHOLE THING.
We hope this place will always be there , even with just Lentil Soup and Turkey Sandwiches
