They must have a secret to that great pastrami, but as you can tell in the video, though I did get behind the counter, with camera rolling, I failed to wheedle any secrets out of the stoic, divinely New York, countermen.
That’s the bad news. The good news is that I’ll have to go back and try for it again & again & again & you get the picture. What is not a secret is that Pastrami Queen makes expensive, (worth it to me), superior, highly-rated, kosher pastrami and serves it up in large portions. I mentioned that they are kosher, right? In practice this means don’t expect any dairy with the meat, even including cheese to make a Reuben Sandwich. The irony is that the meat is so good, its the one time I’d take a “Meat on Bread Sandwich” over a Reuben.
I encourage you to go and bust your cholesterol count for the best tasting pastrami this side of anywhere and if in the process you learn their ”secret” don’t leave P Chef out in the cold. Share the love!
