Mexican Jewish Deli Shock -Corned Beef on Rye with Jalapeno
|Katz' Deli in NYC|
So I'm in LA and my son says "Hey Pops- How about a nice Corned Beef on rye -we're right near a famous LA kosher deli"
I says "Go on -I'm used to getting my corned beef and pastrami sandwiches at Katz' on West Houston street in NYC (alleged to have killed more Jews than Hitler) - "you gotta be kidding! -Kosher deli in LA -That's an oxymoron"
Lee replies; "No way -Jerry's in Marina Del Ray has authentic NY caliber - max out artery clogging cold cuts on Jewish rye that will put lead in your old pencil -guaranteed!"
So here we are at Jerry's and i have just ordered a corned beef on rye from -get this - from a Mexican deli man.
Now just for the record -my position on cross border immigration is -"C'mon in! - EVERY Mexican illegal or illegal -in my opinion -is ten times the human being than all the white Americans living outside the blue states -AND i would prefer living next to a Mexican gang banger than any religious Christian or rich wasp"
BUT - i do not want to order a Corned beef on Rye from one of them -it's like putting mayo on a Brisket sandwich (which my son just ordered -and he is now officially out of my will.)
Oh -and when i asked Luis for some kosher garlic dills he informed me that he never heard of them -I was waiting for him to ask me if i would like some jalepenos instead (in which case i would have called immigration)
|How about a Corned Beef Burrito?|
My son said -"Oh poppy -you are an old fashioned Jew!"
SO! -LA has turned my son into an anti-semite -and is basically transforming authentic corned beef and pastrami and brisket and salami sandwiches -Kosher Deli et. al -into Jewish Burritos.
Oh -and my skinny -virtually fat free Corned Beef sandwich tasted like crap!
