While widely accepted as not the pastrami capital of the world, Los Angeles is still more than a cold cut when it comes to deli delectables.
To celebrate National Hot Pastrami Day on Jan. 14, the local piled-high crowd will line up at the city's unofficial outpost, Langer's. But MacArthur Park is not the only option; there's plenty of peppered and partially-dried meat for everyone, and some of it's free.
KCET previously put their finest faces into the sandwiches of the Southland for a roundup of "the best pastrami in L.A., from Thousand Oaks to Alhambra."
The late-Huell Howser hosted his own hunt for the city's perfect pastrami, and Chow.com came to the table with a kina hora for Katz's in New York, and a countdown of "Killer Pastramis" around Los Angeles.
