This ain't your mama's pastrami on rye, for sure. The entire menu takes traditional Jewish cuisine and really turns it on its head with some really stunning sandwich combinations. My friend John decided to get the Beef on Weck and I took a chance and got the Chicken Salad. We split an order of smoked meat poutine, because you cannot go to Mile End and not order it. It's a personal rule.
|Wagyu roast beef, horseradish, weck roll|
|Gribenes, new pickles, pickled peppers, schmaltz toasted challah|
Tender chicken, a light mayo dressing, tiny bits of celery, crunchy cucumber that's only been kissed by brine, sweet pickled peppers, salty/crisp gribenes, and a buttery challah lightly toasted with schmaltz.
Such delightful confusion of the tongue, a whirlwind unsion of of richness and briny tang!
The sandwich pretty much rendered me stupid. In a good way.
Do yourself a solid, and get yourself over to Mile End Sandwich. Great service, exciting sandwiches.
