Katz's Deli | Katz熟食店 |Katz熟食店

Can't blog about New York without talking about the food.

 

This place is a New York institution serving up awesome kosher deli food. I think the orgasm scene from When Harry met Sally was filmed here. I didn't mean to have dinner here but I was walking by and couldn't resist.

This guy slices meat all day long. He gets an average of a dollar tip per order and probably does 20 orders per hour. Nice tax free income supplement.

I had a pastrami on rye with a bit of mustard and some pickles. The pastrami was incredible, the guy in front of me was moaning with each bite. Maybe Meg Ryan was orgasming because of the soft, succulent and fatty pastrami.

Like a Georgia O'Keefe painting in sandwich form. I ate and I ate but I couldn't get throught the thing. Just a bit too much meat for me. One more bite and I probably would've puked, luckily I was able to walk it off on the way home.

|在紐約無法不談論美食。

 

這個店是很有名的紐約協會供應猶太熟食的店舖,我覺得是從電影《當哈利碰上莎莉》在這裡取景後才更有名的。我並非專程過來吃晚餐,但路過這裡時無法抵抗美食的誘惑。

這傢夥整天都在切肉。平均每次點餐他能得到 1美元的小費,大概每小時可以賺 20美元,額外收入的免稅政策真好。

我點了稞麥面包夾熏牛肉,加了芥末和泡菜。熏牛肉真的好吃到不可思議,我前面的傢夥每吃一口都發出滿足的呻吟。可能梅格•瑞恩也因為吃到這柔軟、多汁而飽滿的牛肉感到極度滿足吧。

三明治的樣子就象歐基芙的畫作,我吃啊吃就是沒法吃完,對我來說肉太多了,再咬一口我就要吐出來了,還好走路回家讓我消化了大半。

Hey, I think I ate at that deli shop with my friends when we vacationed in NYC! (I find Montreal deli meats yummier though!...) Anyway, just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you, Daniel, for being a true inspiration to all us CBCs/ ABCs! You prove that we can embrace the best of both worlds and succeed wherever we are if we put our minds to it. I sensed you would make it big ever since I saw you in "City of Glass" but it wasn't until I watched "Protege" that I realized what a big star you've become! (Actually, I somehow stumbled onto this website while searching for more info on "Protege"!) Anyway, congrats on your success thus far and all the best on your future endeavors!!! :) PS: I too am thinking of going back to Asia- not for the entertainment industry but for health care, as more Western-educated professionals/ expats are settling there... I'm a naturopathic physician currently in private practice. Check out my clinic website www.natureone.ca when you have time. The "Health Tips" and "Success Stories" are a good read. :)

man... that looks good! I'll have to try that place when I'm in NYC in a few months. One of my friends moved to NY from SF and started a food blog when he got there. Now he gets recognized at restaurants as a genuine critic. For more Manhattan restaurants check out his website at: www.foodite.com Have fun in NY!

you can check out St Marks Place (which is 8th Street between 3rd & 2nd Ave) and try some japanese food, and experience the 'little punk rock' area (more at Lower East Side). there is a fun store selling hot dogs and tidbits in vending machine style (forget the name of that place but i know it's all in pink!)

Hi Daniel. If you are in NYC, you should hit up "Cafe Lalo" between Amsterdam and Broadway. (: It's a nice cafe where you can enjoy a cup of coffee and cake. You might have already heard about it, they shooted the movie "you've got mail" there. Atmosphere is nice and good place to chill. Should try it.

haha i liked that part from When harry met sally did you watch the part from Date Movie that copied the orgasm part from when harry met sally? oh god that guy's so nasty, but nevertheless, being a lame teenager i found it funny. and dont watch that movie, its worse than scary movie 4 and that shoudl tell you something hahahaa you're really witty. yes i agree, meg ryan was probably really orgasming from the succulent sandwich.
