This is a one-food post. And it’s about a food that I don’t even get to eat this week. #ThanksPassover.
But I tried it last week and…um…it merits some recognition .
It’s the Jewbano sandwich at The Comfort.
This lower east side diner looks like any cute cafe with fresh salads, homemade chicken soup, and creamy mac-and-cheese. It is unassuming and casual. It doesn’t at all let you know what rests inside its hallowed walls.
Behold: The Jewbano:
via The Comfort’s Facebook page
House roasted turkey – juicy and soft with a nice layer of fat.
Katz’s pastrami – well, we all know how I feel about this. The Comfort is the only joint outside of Katz’s that is allowed to use this proprietary pastrami in a sandwich.
Guss’ pickles – simply the best. Tart, tangy, sour
Swiss cheese – and none too skimpy with it!
Deli mustard – because we aren’t heathens, after all.
Kossar’s bulka – buttery, onion-y, soft but dense enough to absorb the sandwiche’s juices.
This is bliss. It is ideally constructed. Salty pastrami, sour pickles, that tang of mustard and melted cheese. This is what you want after a night at the clubs, after a morning of tough meetings, or pretty much any time.
Especially during Passover.
I can’t wait to have one next week.
