Food Porn - Hymie's Merion Deli - Merion, PA

Schmoozer combo
Just in time for the start of the Paleo Challenge, let's pour one out for the sandwiches that ain't here.

Last week, Kara and I went to Hymie's Merion Deli for lunch. It's a Jewish deli, so everything had bread with it. Sandwiches, bagels, crackers, it was grain overload. I had been sick most of the prior week and didn't have much of an appetite. When we checked out the menu though, everything looked good and I was going with a sandwich, bread included.

I rarely eat grains. The few exceptions are thin crust pizza, my on-going quest to find the best burger in the Philly area (currently it's the Village Burger at Village Whiskey, with the additions of smoked bacon and a fried egg), or a really good sandwich.

Much like Joey Tribiani, my favorite food is sandwiches, which made it hard initially to transition into Paleo eating. I tried
flourless bread for a while, which was a little bit better than
eating cardboard. But nowadays, I look at bread and it does
nothing for me. Hallelujah! I've been Saved!
"T.K." sandwich

Which brings me to our lunch time selections. I went with the Schmoozer Combo: corned beef and pastrami with cole slaw (on the sandwich) and russian dressing. I'm not even sure what kind of bread it was on but it was not memorable, and in hindsight not worth it. If I'm going to eat bread it should be awesome, and somewhat worth the damage. But the sandwich overall was still pretty tasty.

I think Kara ordered better than me one on this one. She went with the "T.K" Sandwich: hot brisket between two potato pancakes, topped with brown gravy and a side of chunky homemade applesauce. That's good stuff.

Now, back to reality.
