What is Pastrami and where to eat: At Katz's Deli!

To make Pastrami, it takes a very long time ... at least 2 weeks! Generally, it is the tip of the beef chest (including mutton or lamb), brushed and covered with spices, then smoked and steam-cooked. It's a specialty imported to the United States by European Jews at the end of the 1800s.

Perhaps you have found it in several places, but the most famous Pastrami Sandwich is the New York one, and if you really want to taste the best, you just have to come to Katz’s on Houston Street, a Deli opened in New York back in 1888, and always owned by the same family handed-down father to son .... And it's right here that we will start our Food Tour around the Lower East Side.

Tip from Our Guide Irene

If you arrive at the meeting point a bit earlier, you can taste one of Katz's famous Pastrami's Sandwiches ... if you need more information you can find it on our Blog – Visit Katz's a New York

Please note that Katz's usually has long waiting lines, so we usually don't stop here during the tour, but we advise to do it either before or after our 2-hour walk.
