Brent's Delicatessen... Holy Moses!

It was 3:30 pm on a saturday and I decided to google "best sandwich in the san fernando valley." Immediately one restaurant/ deli rose to the top. Brent's.

15 minutes later I was at the pearly gates. Upon arrival I noticed all of the standard requirements that a good Jewish deli should have. They had Dr. Brown's and brought us both dill and garlic pickles. They also brought out some warm rye slices with butter. This place was packed at 3:30pm, this is rare seeing that t is half way in between lunch and dinner. Brent's was founded in 1967 and has attracted a wide variety of clientel since it grand opening. And its no woner. Look at these sandwiches!

Meet roast beef and pastrami french dip. I'm not usually a pastrami kingd of guy. But the buzz got to me so I pulled the trigger. MINGIA thatsa some gooda pastrami!

It was so thinly sliced that it melts in your mouth.On point with both. Spicy mustard as well as au jus dipping sauce. The slaw and potato salad were good too (as expected from an establishment such as this.)
The eclairs are also a big deal at Brent's and are probably enough to feed a family of four for two consecutive weeks.

In this picture it looks big because it close to the camera, not so Ronald. Its actually the size of half of my stomach.

The guy brought it out in a wheel barrow. Just look at this abomination! But thats neither here nor there. Brent's is a force to be reckoned with. If your ever in the mood to break something dear to you, like your stomach... Hit up Brent's. You won't be dissapointed.

  1. I know that this is a sandwich blog, but that eclair is beautiful. I would eat it wheel barrow and all.

  2. that is pure insanity. and I love it.

  3. The eclair was enough to satisfy the hunger deep within.

    And Yes... it was insane, the way those sheets of pastrami just lied there on top of one another, with no law and order present whatsoever.
