Pennsylvania Deli Named One Of The Best In America
Right around the corner from the Theatre of the Living Arts in Philadelphia is where you will find the Pennsylvania establishment that was named one of the best delis in America by Mashed, late last year.
“An authentic deli is all about manned counters of fresh cold cuts (especially pastrami and corned beef), cheeses, and made-to-order sandwiches, with rye bread being the cornerstone,” Mashed explains. They also opened their feature by explaining a bit about the history of Jewish delis in America.
This popular lunch spot in Philly is a great representation of that. In fact, their history goes back 100 years.
Famous 4th Street Delicatessen
In addition to piled-high sandwiches at one of the best delis in the country, Famous 4th Street also stays true to their Pennsylvania roots. They also cook up four different variations of a Philly cheesesteak (including a pastrami cheesesteak).
“With a large, well-executed menu, Famous feeds hundreds of people daily, serving food made on the premises, created from family perfected and time-honored recipes,” they state. The meats are cured onsite, and the location also includes a bakery, where sweet goods are baked fresh.
This menu is extensive. The first group you will see is a category they call “Overstuffed Delicatessen Sandwiches.” This is where you will find many traditional items like corned beef, roast beef, and famous chopped liver. The next sandwich section is the Rueben and hot open items. If none of that meets your appetite, you have plenty of other options. Burgers, hot dogs, salads and over 20 different appetizers are available. This is all before you get to dessert, of course.
When you think of your favorite deli, most likely a sandwich with a crunchy pickle comes to mind. However, the Pennsylvania landmark named one of the best delis in America has something delicious for every meal. They also serve breakfast all day.
“Famous 4th Street Deli is one of those places steeped in nostalgia and tradition that you just can’t miss you ever tour the City of Brotherly Love,” Mashed concludes.
