This past week I had a chance encounter with a legendary sandwich joint – Manny’s Coffee Shop and Deli on the South Side of Chicago. Manny’s is known for their Corned Beef Sandwiches – but don’t be fooled. They SHOULD be known for their TURKEY PASTRAMI Sandwiches.
This sandwich was the shit. And they keep their shit simple: Turkey on bread (in my case, Rye). That’s it. No other bullshit like mayo or lettuce. Turkey on bread. Old school. But somehow, it was literally one of the best Turkey Sandwiches I’ve had in my life. Manny’s will certainly be a force to be reckoned with in Turkey Sandwich Madness this year.
Here’s a video of me ordering at Manny’s. Sorry about the camera work.
Coincidentally, this is also Barack OBAMA’s favorite place to eat in Chicago. Yeah, I run with some pretty influencial people.
