|Corned beef from the New York Deli|
That isn't where I'd expect you to find an exceptional sandwich, but I'm really captivated by the corned beef sandwich at the New York Deli in Columbia.
The deli sits on Snowden River Parkway in the same shopping center as Linda's Bakery and House of India. It appears to be a Korean-run place, but I have enough hope for Jewish-Korean mixtures that I ordered with real expectations.
New York Deli delivers. It's good light rye bread with right meaty, salty corned beef in between. Sometimes, especially back in 2010 when I first ate there, I have gotten thick-cut meat. On my last visit, the corned beef was almost shaved. Either way, it's a special sandwich, and it's one of my favorites -- along with great finds like the gyro at Maiwand Kabob and almost anything at Bon Fresco Sandwich Bakery. (Start with London broil, corned beef or turkey.)
What other sandwiches do people recommend? I don't eat lunch in Howard County often, so I'm eager to share ideas with the regulars.
