Sandwiches are quite possibly the world’s most perfect, self-contained food, and Los Angeles boasts more than a handful of greats. From the French dip at Philippe the Original to the Godmother at Bay Cities and the #19 at Langer’s, there’s no shortage of sandwich excellence in and around the Southland.
Pictured above is the delicious #19 at Langer’s Delicatessen. An easy choice for the most popular pastrami sandwich at this historic deli in Westlake, just west of Downtown. This near-perfect Jewish deli sandwich features house-baked rye bread, Russian dressing, cheese, coleslaw, and freshly sliced slivers of the most achingly perfect smoked pastrami on earth.
