Deli Food: Albuquerque, New Mexico
I've lived in Albuquerque for five years and have yet to find a good deli with lean corned beef/pastrami sliced thin and piled high on fresh rye bread. We're willing to drive, since most places are within 15 minutes throughout town.
Thanks for the suggestions/helpful hints!
Shazzam look at this, ABQFoodie. Gil reviews a new deli at Nob Hill.
I went to California Pastrami today. It was pretty OK. Nothing to rave about, but the meat was good, hoagies good. Hard to compare to a New York deli (I haven't been to an LA deli). Very crowded, mostly takeout. Excellent service. I'd go back.
Alas, deli here is a rare bird indeed. As a native NYer, I miss deli and all it encompasses. There was a place in Rio Rancho for awhile, a branch of main location in the Q, but both are gone. Gil likes this place; may be worth checking out:
