An Empire State of Sandwich

Yall all know by know that I’m a born Southerner, and I like it that way. So it is always with a little trepidation that I order the Yankee Club at the Young Ave. Deli. You know what I mean? Lot of good people and stuff up in NYC, but I’ll stick to ol’ M-Town, thank you very much!

However, my man Jay-Z is a pretty big fan of the Empire State, so I’ll let him give it the props it deserves.

The only thing that I think they miss in the song is a lyric about how good the sandwiches are. Well, Fortunately, I don’t have to travel all the way up to the Big Apple to get my hands on the Yankee Club. The Young Ave. Deli puts together an awesome triple decker, full of pastrami, corned beef, sauerkraut, spicy mustard, and provolone. It is like a rueben on roids, and it is my favorite sandwich at the Deli.

Slap that sandwich on a plate of the Deli’s amazing sweet potato fries, and you are talking a serious lunch or dinner.

So good. Thanks New York for the export. I’ll take it. Wonder if New Yorkers are writing the same loving things about pulled pork and pimento cheese right now?

Head over to the Deli, or better yet, if you’re in Midtown, have them deliver! See you there!
