Our weekly bite explores the city's food trucks, one at a time, highlighting our favorite mobile dishes and snacks.
The Truck: La Pastrami
The Cuisine: A celebration of cured, smoked beef known as pastrami
Specialty Items: Pastrami, mostly in sandwiches
Worth the Wait in Line? At peak lunch time, a total 10 minutes from the end of the line to food in hand.
As you walk up to the La Pastrami truck, you have a pretty good idea of what to expect. The menu board lists a handful of sandwich variations that showcase the smoked beef, like a hoagie ($10, pastrami, mayo, mustard, pickles, lettuce, tomato) and a couple of melts with thousand Island dressing, cheese, and of course, pastrami. While the sandwiches all come standard with fries, the fries themselves impressed the most, served up in one of their specials.
