Yum of the Month: Pastrami Sandwich

The Yum of the Month for August is the pastrami sandwich from J. Parrinos Queen City Deli.

Have you ever been to a real New York City deli? We’re talking about the kind where they pile the meat so high in your sandwich that no normal human mouth could ever fit around it. Well, you can get a sandwich that’s almost that tall in Springfield. The pastrami sandwich at J. Parrino’s Queen City Deli (1647 Sunshine St., Springfield, 417-887-1145, queencitydeli.com) fits the profile, and it’s extra-delicious. The meat is tender and juicy and perfectly peppery, and it’s served on Jewish rye bread. Order it with a tasty Italian side salad or a bag of potato chips for a perfect lunch that won’t break the bank. Best part: It’s more than big enough to share.
