Celebrating National Hot Pastrami Day! Legendary Katz Deli! Pastrami Burgers Too!

Happy “National Pastrami Day!”

Well, this is a tasty holiday, isn’t it? I woke up this morning to discover that it’s “national pastrami day”, and here are two great ways to celebrate!

A “Pastrami” Burger!

Yes, I ate a unique burger at Astro Burger, which is located in West Hollywood, on Santa Monica Boulevard – yes, the iconic “Route 66”!

As you can see, it’s your 50’s classic soda joint vibe, and the menu is MASSIVE:

There are burgers of every shape and size – and a garden burger of course, plus a myriad of sandwiches, salads, fries, tacos, burritos, and even a huge breakfast menu in the morning…but we all know what I was here for:

A “Pastrami Burger!”

This burger is incredible, and worth a national holiday!

You can taste all of the unique ingredients, and the pastrami added a perfect, slightly salty pop to the cheeseburger, complimenting the flavor rather than taking away from it…but I will also tell you that I took a bit of it off and ate it separately, because there was so much!

They wrap it tight, and that’s a good thing, because, while the bun is hearty and toasted well, this is a juicy sandwich, and the wrapper holds it all together…you can see more of their menu here:

I don’t know that I need pastrami on my burger every time, but it was fun as a “one off” – but for those on the east coast, there is another way to enjoy pastrami:

This is the legendary Pastrami sandwich from Katz’s Deli in New York – also home to that orgasmic movie moment in “When Harry Met Sally”:

They make an unbelievable Pastrami sandwich, which I tried – the entire experience is unique: from the way you order, to the way they pile the sandwich up higher than you can imagine:

There is nothing better than sitting in a restaurant with such a rich history – and devouring a massive sandwich like this one!

I have been here several times now, and you can see my review here:

Let me know how you plan to celebrate “National Pastrami Day!”
