Pastrami Sandwich at Tommy's Joynt (SF)

DavidT Dec 15, 2012 06:38 AM

I stopped in Tommy's Joynt the other day for the first time in at least 20 years and had a pastrami sandwich. The pastrami is hand carved and the serving is ample, especially for $6. Best of all, it tasted pretty good! It was juicy and reasonably lean. It would have liked a little more of a peppery bite to the taste, but, other than that, I was impressed. My side order of cole slaw was creamy and a little on the sweet side, but very fresh tasting.

I will not wait another 20 years to return.

    Love Tommy's Joynt. I know it's not haute cuisine and I love that. Rather some attempt at "comfort food" it's just hunks of meat served with beer.

          I keep meaning to go to Roberts but haven't made it there yet. Which cut do you buy and how do you prepare it?

            This thread on the NY navel cut pastrami from Roberts might help.
