|Short rib pastrami at Whole Foods|
Generally, I'm not big on sandwiches, but the deli has me packing lunch with meats that they smoke and slice in house. Smoked turkey is moist and full of flavor, and it's even better paired half-and-half with short rib pastrami.
The smoke amazes me. A sandwich of smoked turkey and short rib pastrami tastes nothing like your generic sandwich. The short rib is fatty. I'm surprised how much I enjoy the meat because I normally ask for lean corned beef or pastrami. But it's a dry texture, and the richness pairs nicely with turkey slices. They both have that smokey flavor and a slightly crunchy edge. Less than a quarter pound of meat has a "big sandwich" flavor.
What else have people discovered at the Whole Foods? The fresh-squeezed orange juice is criminally expensive, but it's spectacularly delicious. I enjoyed some fresh ravioli, and I'm very happy with all the fruit and vegetables that I've bought.
