Pastrami The Way It Should Be
Review by ET


The sandwiches here are good, and people know it. My first clue was that the place was constantly packed with all sorts of people. I got the #19 – pastrami with coleslaw and Russian dressing. I hear there are 30 different kinds of pastrami sandwich combinations. The pastrami is thick, like spam in appearance, but when you bite into it, it is incredibly soft and flavorful. I've only had one other pastrami like this, at the Pasadena Sandwich Company at the Sierra Madre Gold Line stop. Langer's is a bit further than I'm used to, but it's easily accessible via the adjacent Red Line subway stop. If you drive, park at Seventh and Westlake at the surface lot and get a validation stamp for free parking. After I left, I discovered that Langers was ranked #1 in the 2008 AOL "Best of the City" awards for Los Angeles. The exterior appearance of the building might not draw you in the first time, but once you've had a taste, you will certainly go back for more.

Pros: Delicious sandwiches in almost every possible combination you could want
Cons: It's a bit more expensive than you would think
