I pass by Ashkenaz Deli everyday on my walk in to work when I’m in Chicago. I’m a big fan of Jewish-style/New York-style delis and the daily allure of a big-ass Turkey Sandwich convinced me to leave work early this week so I could hit them up before they closed. I was immediately concerned when I noticed that they use the same Dietz & Watson bullshit deli meats that they sell at Albertson’s.
I ordered a Turkey Sandwich on Rye and made it extremely clear that I wanted DELI mustard. I bring the sandwich home and find out that they squirt a bunch of yellow fucking mustard on there. Thanks. Sandwich ruined.
Don’t go to this place. I don’t have another recommendation for a Turkey Sandwich in the Gold Coast neighborhood (Subway is the only other choice), so I would suggest just skipping the meal.
Just to be fair and balanced, maybe they know how to make an incredible Pastrami or Corned Beef sandwich – but I doubt it.
