When you think Pastrami, New York City is the first place that comes to mind. However, with a healthy Jewish population here on the west coast means plenty of pastrami to go around. If you notice, many burger stands offer pastrami as well. Not to mention hotspots like Langers, Canters, Art's and more. Pastrami in L.A. is close to the equivalent of Italian Beef in Chicago or BBQ in Texas. It has become a staple. When done right, you get piles of greasy, flavorful, perfectly seasoned thin slices of delicious meat. But when done wrong it can become tragically dry or worse, a gristly abomination.

There are still some major places that will be added soon...
