Delicious pastrami at Katz Delicatessen @ New York

Katz's Delicatessen is a kosher-style restaurant and iconic Jewish restaurant. They are famous for pastrami, salami, hot dogs, bagel & corned beef. This restaurant has a unique ticketing system. As each customer enters Katz's they are handed a printed, numbered ticket by the door attendant. As you receive the food from various stations in the restaurant, the employee will write on the ticket. Be careful to take care of your ticket as they will charge lost ticket if you lost it. Although it was my first time tried on their pastrami, it was delicious. I even come back on the next day to try on their cold cut salami which taste not too bad but just because I don't like cold and raw stuff. Coincidently, this restaurant is quite near to my hotel on Bowery Street. So I can walk there for my two breakfast. A bit of history, during world war II, Katz encourage parents to "send a salami to your boy in the army" as salami is easy to pack, last long and it contain meat nutrition.

Taste:8/10(Good. Delicious pastrami, great cucumber & good hot chocolate. Their fries however is just on the par. Salami is full of meat goodness.
Price:5/10(Near expensive. Make sure to prepare to spend around USD12-15 per meal here. I am able to skip my lunch by having breakfast here. The portion is quite huge).
