When I asked Scott the owner of the Nosh Truck what he thought about Pastrami Dan’s his eyes lit up, that told me everything. It was nearing 2 in the afternoon and he mentioned that they might not be open. It didn’t stop me from driving over there to find out for myself, it was. I made it there with a little over an hour to spare. Pastrami Dan’s is open from 11 to 4 Monday through Saturday just to be clear, hours change during the summer.
My wife Marcela is not a Pastrami or Roast Beef fan so lucky for me there’s a “Super Taco” that she can eat. It’s got a nice Cheese crisp built around the border. The Taco’s got ground Beef with Salsa and plenty of Lettuce. This is definitely her thing and she loved it.
Just as she was about to take her first bite we’re given this little pot full of their Jalapeño Relish made in-house. We both loved it and thought it fit better with her Super Taco and the Chili Dog than with the Pastrami Wedge.
What Chili Dog you say? The one I had to have I after I saw it calling out to me on the menu. The Mustard was hidden under the Chili and helped bring out its sweetness. After I added the Jalapeño Relish I could possibly call this a perfect Chili Dog. I think I just did actually.
The Hot Pastrami Wedge was sliced to order and served up with Mustard under it on the roll just like the dog, 2 Pickle wedges round out the sandwich. This dude was utterly delicious.
So delicious that mid sandwich I got up and order one to go for my parents to try. They are big Pastrami-holics. I dropped it off at their house and an hour later they were asking where I got it cause they wanted another one. Pastrami Dan’s is where it’s at! My eyes lit up just thinking about it.
