I finally made it to Langer's and one visit was enough to see why everyone loves their pastrami.
You can't talk about pastrami in LA and not talk about Langer's. As expected, it's a popular lunch spot. Their parking lot around the block was almost out of empty spaces on a weekday, and there is a wait for a table.
Eventhough Seriouseats was blown away by the double-baked bread at Langer's, my friend didn't bother with bread and cole slaw. She went straight for the pastrami platter. I might have to do this at least once.
The oversized Root Beer Float ($4.25) will definitely push you over the edge, but the child in your heart will be so satisfied.

Is there a pastrami in LA that can beat Langer's? If you think you know of one, please let me know so I can try it. I do believe Brent's black pastrami in Northridge should be next on my list. Next time I'm in New York, I'll have to compare this to Katz's Deli!
