mmm-yoso is not on vacation. Cathy is blogging while Kirk takes a day off.
Hi. A few weeks ago I met a friend from High School up in Ontario and we had the wonderful surprisingly garnished beef bowl....remember?
Well, this past Saturday one of my college roommates called, from New Orleans, and said she would be here the next day, taking her son on campus tours at Pomona and Claremont Colleges...arriving at the Ontario Airport also! I can drive 2 hours North again, no problem.
Her plane got in, they were exhausted and hungry and I was still in San Diego. I told them to eat somewhere and started my drive up.
We met at a Starbucks and talked for hours! It was wonderful to see and know that neither of us had changed in all these years!
On the way home, I saw it- The Hat!...World Famous Pastrami. Its a pretty staid Restaurant, celebrating its 55th year in the LA area...with ten locations. The Mister *loves* pastrami, and we usually only go to The Hat when we are decorating floats for the Rose Parade in late December.
Well, I thought even if the sandwiches weren't warm, the taste could get home in about two hours.
I got a Pastrami dip and a Roast beef with au jus. ($6.49 each)
The sandwiches arrived home in good condition. The pastrami is made with mustard and pickle and the bread for each is so fresh (I suppose with the business The Hat has, there is no time for anything to get old). Each sandwich is over sized, the meat is flavorful and moist.
If you happen to see it, stop in.
The Hat, ten locations (Alhambra, Brea, Glendora, Lake Forest, Monterey Park, Pasadena, Rancho Cucamonga, Simi Valley, Temple City, Upland)
