Marvel With A Mango: The Pastrami At Hershel's Deli in Philadelphia

On the last day of our trip to Philadelphia a few weeks ago our flight wasn't until 6pm so we got to do some last minute sightseeing including Ben Franklin's grave, a home owned by Dolly Madison, and the Carpenter's Hall which was the meeting place for the 1st Continental Congress. We also stopped by the Reading Terminal Market which has been around in one form or another since 1859.  

There are tons of shops and restaurants selling just about anything you can imagine. The smells were incredible we ended up grabbing a seat at Hershel's Deli. Although we didn't know it beforehand, the deli has amazing reviews and a reputation for amazing sandwiches. 

I went with a pastrami sandwich that ended up being one of the thickest sandwiches I've ever had. The pastrami was so juicy and fell apart so was just about perfect.  

A famous sandwich at Hershel's is a combination pastrami and corned beef reuben and although I'm not a huge fan of reubens, I'll have to give that sandwich a try if I'm back in Phili again.
