ISO of good Montreal smoked meat sandwich in Edmonton
Have seen a number of recommendations in and around Calgary but what about here in Edmonton?
Have had decent sandwhiches at Dahlia's on 124th although I would prefer basic rye or rye with caraway seeds than the "marble" rye they use.
I miss my "Wolfie's" in the west end.
I miss the old original younger's deli downtown by the edmonton journal building...hot meat sandwiches on a blustery cold day....mmmm. but that is taking me back 30 years! i don't know what it was about that time period, but i also remember a hand carved hot smoked meat sandwich place by the old rialto theatre on 101st south of jasper ave. and the sandwiches at the hello deli when paula owned on 124st....
I ended up stopping at The Steak Out this past week for a sandwich. It was quite good actually. The meat comes from Lesters Deli in Montreal, and is offered in a few sizes. The bread was average light rye loaf (no marble or seeds), and came with a nice coating of mustard. The sides could use some work, but I did like the inclusion of the pickle. I miss the pickles that came with my sandwiches in Ottawa.

Costco in Calgary carries Dunn's, so if you don't mind constructing your own, try Costco. I would assume that Dunn's is also available in the Edmonton Costcos. Then the trick is to find good rye. Strangely I have not found a really good semi-dense light rye in Calgary, like that used in Montreal. Maybe Edmonton is different.
I'm with you on this hunt, and you better believe I'd be willing to take the camera out for a bit of smoked meat face-off.
There was a sign outside of the dingy south side restaurant/bar called The Steak Out, which claimed they had the best smoked meat sandwich. I've never had it fresh, but the leftovers I saw one day were jammed packed. I want to say that I've heard the sandwich is available at the restaurant inside of the Delta Edmonton South (on the whitemud).
Other than Dahlia's..what about Col. Mustards, or Teddy's?
I think this is definitely a topic we need to work on.
