$5 Corned Beef sandwich at Kibitz Room

Foobooz pointed out this awesome October deal at the Kibitz Room: Corned beef sandwiches for 5 bucks. Normally their sandwiches cost over $10 and come with a lot more meat, but this sized more than filled me up. As expected they have a full array of Dr. Brown's, this included Cel-ray, which made me happy.

If you sit down and eat you have full access to... the pickle bar.

I like most bars, and this one was particularly to my liking, given my fondness (ok, obsession) with pickles. I tried the cucumbers (nice as a side to all that meat), sauerkraut (nice to put on your meat), spicy pickles (not my favorite), and the sour garlics (pretty good, not enough snap). I was sufficiently satisfied with Philly's version of a Jewish deli; go for the sweet deal, stay for the pickle bar.

  1. glad to see your fressing again. this post is so jewy

  2. I only ate here once but I didn't love it. I ordered whitefish salad on a bagel, but the bagel was cold and the whitefish just OK (plus they didn't scoop out the bagel so the white fish could have a home. Not up to NYC standards, but hey, this is Philly we're talking about.
