Schwartz's 2

Schwartz's 2,
originally uploaded by mook elliott.
I had never been to Schwartz's, Montreal's legendary Kosher Deli, and since we're leaving in 2 weeks this was a situation I had to remedy before I left. So, passing up Korean black goat soup, here we are, 2 sandwiches with medium-fat smoked meat, 2 fries, 2 sour pickles, 2 black cherry sodas, and 1 cabbage salad later.
As I said to the Mystery Eater afterwards, it's kind of like what hot dog meat would be if it actually grew on a cow: processed and yet still recognizably of animal origin, one machine away from being the crab stick of the beef world.
All snideness aside it WAS really good, and the fries were really really good, and well, nothing beats black cherry soda.
The Lebanese guys next to us ordered a whole plate of meat (a "small" size on the menu) which was just a bit much, probably about half a pound too much.
