Langer's: The Next Step

OK, I'm going to do it. I'm going to have something other than pastrami at Langer's. What?

  1. I love the matzoh ball soup. My mother loved the chopped chicken liver.

        CBH + fries well done

        (and a #19 on the side)

          "(and a #19 on the side)"...brilliant!!!

          I've heard the tongue sandwich is good but I've never tried it. Actually, I've had every intention of trying it at each visit but I always end up overriding my intentions and getting a pastrami sandwich. It's a sad addiction, I know.

            That pretty much explains every trip to langers for me. I have never gone there without eating at least half of a pastrami sandwich

              The well done fries is also essential! I thought I was the only one who asked for them cooked that way but I'm glad to see I'm not alone in appreciating the well done crinkle cut fries:)

              This talk of pastrami and fries is making me really hungry now. lol

              1. re: mrshankly

                their well done fries are PERFECTION

                top 5 status

              My mama is an east-coast- jewish-deli-tongue sandwich fanatic, and she enjoyed the one she had at Langer's, a while ago. I love the chopped liver, as well.

        2. Why would you do that? Well, if you must, I would suggest the chopped liver on rye with an egg cream.

            Have you tried the #19? Pastrami, cole slaw, and cheese. You should also try the brisket. It's not consistent but when it's on, it's really good.

          2. I like their pastrami and eggs scramble for breakfast sometimes. I once ordered a sandwich of hard salami with cream cheese and sliced red onion on rye - which was really good. Mostly, though, I stick with the plain pastrami on rye. I do like their fries well done, though.

            1. Their chopped liver is really good. It's one of the few items worth augmenting the pastrami sandwich with.

              Avoid the matzo ball soup.... thin, limp and depressing.

                Their chopped liver does not stand up against the pastrami. That happens to be one my all time favorite sandwiches, but Langer's chopped liver just does not cut it for me.
