the best pastrami of my adult life, bar none

There are many different times of mmhmm. Sometimes you say mmhmm bc you're eating something in front of the person who cooked it and you want to reassure them that you liked it. Sometimes you say mmhmm bc you want to reassure yourself that something was worth the calories. The most significant mmhmm is the involuntary one. The one that happens when you put something in your mouth and you find yourself closing youre eyes and mmhmming without even realizing it. This is what will happen when you bite in to a pastrami sandwich at Deli Boss. It is, no question, the bext sandwich you've had since you were a child. I don't normally post this stuff, but ev...ery week I see something I love closing, and we need to make sure this doesn't happen with Deli Boss. Purchase this coupon, and for $15, go buy 2 sandwiches and a couple of cans of soda, for $15 and you will become addicted to this place. Side note, this is not groupon, I will not get any referral credit for this, but the place is just that good.

I do think the sandwiches are kinda pricy without the coupon, but unfortunately I think they're totally worth it. They also have somethign called a smothered burger, which is apretty large burger smothered in freshly cut and grilled mushrooms and onions, served with fried, coleslaw for $10, and a dynamite potato knish that I only initially tried to bring my tally last time up to the $30 mark,. but will totally buy again.

They also have a chicken deal that I havent had, but I see people buying there whenever Im there, that's a pretty good deal without the coupon, and an obscene deal with it. You can check out the details on the facebook page.

You guys know me, I comment on other people's posts but I really don't recc things myself so frequently, so please take this one seriouisly

Oh, and it's under Chof K

                Both of those restaurants are very definitely not kosher (offering ham/bacon, meat and dairy mixes, etc.) The vast majority of delis aren't.

                  1. re: srsone

                    just good pastrami, i myself am kosher, but 1- ive brought non-kosher people there, and 2- if u go during the day most of the people buying there are non kosher
                    3- its not in a religious neighborhood, so for it to garner a following, it needs to be competitive in general, and it has
