New Blog by Michael G. Kaplan

We hope you’ll take a moment to check out a new blog by Michael G. Kaplan who has traveled America in search of new adventures in pastrami. His poetic use of language to describe his culinary adventures is topped only by his stunning photography of both deli dishes and the people in the communities who serve them. We think you’ll love it as much as we do. Thanks for sharing with us, Michael, and for being such a big fan of Langer’s pastrami. – The Langer Family

There’s nothing more liberating than seeing the look on a New Yorker’s face when someone says LA has the best pastrami. So we’ll go ahead and say it again – LA has the best pastrami. And all you need to do is head down to Alvarado and 7th, and pay a quick visit to Langer’s for proof. The LA landmark has been dishing out the best pastrami in the world (we can confirm through extensive scientific analysis) for over 70 years, with the #19 sandwich serving as its pièce de résistance. Pastrami, swiss cheese, and Russian-style coleslaw stacked between two perfect pieces of rye bread. This is the standard bearer for all things pastrami. Come at us.

Silver Lake Blog: Still Going Strong

We’re thrilled with the great new article published on the Silver Lake Blog about Langer’s Delicatessen. Here’s an excerpt:

Langer’s menu is as long as it is classic, with traditional Jewish deli nosh, matzo ball soup, brisket, corned and roast beef, and homemade desserts. The item to behold is the #19. Let’s dissect, shall we? Untoasted rye, Russian dressing, creamy coleslaw, and a couple slices of Swiss—all in service of the hand-sliced, juicy, smoky, beefy pastrami. On the side: a single dill pickle.
