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'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.
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 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.

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....
