Best Pastrami Sandwich

Adelman's on King's Highway has really deteriorated badly.

A corned-beef sandwich in March was served tough, overly fatty and cold. For a minute I thought it was poysonal because I keep loud company, but no, they're just failing. Place smelled funny too.

added: I had a good meal at the Stage about a year ago.

Per Se and Momofuku Ko on Consecutive Nights?

Eat a tablespoon of white four mixed in water and you're good to go!

Is the Red Hook Lobster Truck overrated?

some say a dot of horseradish and a squeeze of lemon is all that's required

Googa Mooga Food Festival in Prospect Park

I concur entirely; a total fiasco.

Your review of the dish is right on target, Miss Needle -- much more concise than my own.

#1 soup has become a twice-weekly favorite, I'm ashamed to say, eaten in the parking lot behind the market. Doused with vinegar and chili sauce, there's nothing finer. Yesterday I ate the intestine (twice cooked, fried after ordering) and it too was sublime. Super fatty inside, crispy outside and barely seasoned, the ends went perfectly with and then into the soup. On another note, the fish + bamboo mentioned above was a nasty mess of flat fried dough medallions (the fish was nearly undetectable) covered in sugar and vinegar sauce, much like any sweet -and-sour. The bamboo offered partial relief with a pickle tang. Also, the beef stew was like a weak knockoff of the now-legendary #1 soup, only with big hunks of fat and gristle. #1 with a side of intestine is my choice so far -- see you there Fri!
