I’m a big fan of the show Diners, Drive-ins and Dives (Triple D). In fact, I’ve started searching out places where the host Guy Fieri has visited. Yea, pretty nerdy, I know. Whatever. I take my food pretty serious.
Tomorrow is my birthday, so when Mrs. Turkey Sandwich asked me where I wanted to go for my birthday dinner, I checked the innerettes to see if there was a place in Denver that has been featured on “Triple D” that I have not been to yet.
There was. It’s called The Bagel Deli and it’s a couple miles from my house. It’s a Jewish Deli and with that, my decision was made.
Typically when I visit one of the places featured on Triple D, I order what Guy ate on the show. Since I was celebrating MY birthday, I was considering the Pastrami and Turkey Sandwich. Before I made the commitment, I asked the waitress if the Turkey was real. I had reason to believe it was because the menu prominently said “as authentic as it gets” but I stil wanted a confirmation. Her response was “well, yeah, they slice it”. That wasn’t really the response I was looking for, but the waitress made me kind of nervous and I could tell she wanted me to hurry up and make a decision.
The final assessment: no it’s not real Turkey. It’s processed. The Pastrami was strong, but the Turkey was weak. Bagel Deli: I think you might be stretching the truth by saying “authentic as it gets” – at least when it comes to Turkey Sandwiches.
