When in a hurry, most people would opt for a sandwich for lunch because it is a safe option and does not cost that much. One can go to a local Safeway and get a classic All-American sub for only $5. It is quick, affordable, and best of all, it can make a person satiated for a long time.
However, it seems like the world of food is turning askew as rumors of restaurants offering ridiculously priced, deli quality meat sandwiches are flying by among foodies. It seems these hearsays are true because even the Guinness World Records has been notified.
Here is a list of the top 3 crazy expensive deli sandwiches ever made in New York City.
1) Reuben Sandwich from Carnegie Deli ($24.95)
Carnegie Deli is one of the oldest delicatessen in New York, coming in second after the iconic Katz’s Delicatessen. Established in 1937, it was able to stay afloat because of the tourists and local regulars from all over the globe.
Known for their huge sandwiches and savory meats, this place also offers ridiculously priced goods. Take the Reuben Sandwich, for example. It is priced at $24.95 with no accompaniment except ro sauerkraut and Swiss cheese. But, for it’s size, it can be shared by two, not-so-hungry customers but they charge $3 for sharing.
2) House Smoked Pastrami Sandwich ($27)
Located in New York City, this classy and elegant restaurant may be the last place a customer would go if he wants a traditional pastrami sandwich. However, due to it’s particularly extensive menu, many deli lovers are circling the place to check if it’s worth the hullabaloo.
The pastrami sandwich is certainly not similar when compared to Katz’s of Carnegie but it was smoked and deliciously moist. It comes with several condiments, red cabbage coleslaw, caramelized onions, and dill potato salad, all for a whooping $27.
3) Triple Decker Sandwich from Sadelle’s ($29)
Located in the very heart of SoHo in New York, this bakery and restaurant rolled into one has been in operation since Fall of 2015. While it is fairly new, many magazines have already included the place into their top New York City restaurants list.
The hip, trendy ambiance and their delicious food must be one of the reasons why they included Sadelle’s because it definitely was not the price of their meals. Case in point, the “Triple Decker Sandwich” costs $29, presented with nothing else but coleslaw and a choice of salami, roast beef, turkey or ham.
