Katz’s Delicatessen

When my mom was in town, she wanted to go to Katz’s Delicatessen for some pastrami. She had seen the restaurant on a tv show on PBS so we took the subway to the lower east side and waited in line for some pastrami and matzo ball soup.

The line system at Katz’s is really interesting – every single person that goes in gets a ticket and that’s the ticket you need to pay and leave the restaurant. If you lose it, you’ll end up paying $50 to get out of the restaurant! There are multiple lines in the restaurant – we separated once we got inside – Ken went to get a Philly cheesesteak (kind of random but it was really good!), I got in line for the pastrami, and my mom went to find a seat.

We shared everything, including the pastrami:

And the matzo ball soup and chicken soup:

The pastrami was half pastrami and half corned beef – so salty and so delicious. The matzo ball soup and chicken soup were *too* salty (and the broth was basically water and salt) – so in the future, I’d probably get matzo ball soup from 2nd Avenue Deli and pastrami from Katz’s!
