Three Day Weekend Eats, Part 5: Pastrami Sandwich from The Habit
But, even though every burger I have had from the Habit has been good, I decided to try something new: the pastrami sandwich.
I like the way they construct the sandwich, with caramelized onions, cheese, mustard, pastrami and pickles. (I ordered it without tomatoes.) I was given my choice of bread and I chose sourdough.
I did not like the sandwich at all. There were two main reasons, one of which was my fault and one of which was not. First, the mea culpa: we got the food to go. True, we were only in the car 90 seconds (we took it back to my parents' house half a mile away) but that's all it takes sometimes. Just in that short trip the bread had gotten completely soggy. The sandwich fell apart with each bite.
Maybe this sandwich was an aberration but I'll never know, because I won't ever be ordering one of these again. I've had about eight burgers from The Habit and they've all been great. I've had this one pastrami sandwich and it was bad. I will only be ordering burgers from now on.
So from now on I will be getting a Charburger with a side of onion rings on every trip to The Habit.
