SANDWICH FREAK !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
There is nothing I love more than a great sandwich.. Quality, fresh roasted meats on good bread. After being away for awhile, I just rediscoverd HARDYS MEATS on Coldwater & Moorpark. Great classic market w/ an old school deli and Butcher counter. Not only great sandwiches made fresh to order, w/ several choices of hot or cold homemade roasted meats. Even the white meat turkey meatloaf is quite nice and not at all dry. They even do juicy rotisserie chickens, ribs, roasts and other house specials for that day. After going this afternoon w/ my pops to pick up a few sandwiches for him, I treated myself to a sexy looking porterhouse to prepare myself for dinner later. What is so refreshing about Hardys is that it is a family run operation and you are always welcomed and the pride they have w/ what they are doing shines. Go Pittsburgh!!!!!!! Take care Hounds.
If you are in the Los Alamitos area (near the race track) Katella Deli has an entire page of sandwich selections - there's even a plate with 3 different sandwich fillings, each on its own roll. They will bring you crunchy dill pickles (if they don't, just ask) to munch on while waiting after you've ordered. The sandwiches (which have names, one is called "Aunt Shirley"!) all seem to be very good, not at all skimpy, and include their yummy coleslaw or choice of several alternatives.
I'm not that impressed with their chicken noodle soup but I love just about everything else (favorite dinners are the brisket and the cabbage rolls, and the kishke (sp?) plate). Hubby says their cornbread is the best - better than Marie's.
I'm also a sandwich lover. I wish more places would serve them for dinner. One of my favorites is the French Dip at Houston's - thinly sliced prime rib on a french roll. Fantastic!! I only know of three locations - Century City, Santa Monica, and Pasadena.
when you get over to the west side you should try Bay Cities - it's on Lincoln near Broadway or Colorado. An amazing Italian Deli, their sandwiches are great, and they bake their bread fresh - so good!
