Jurisdiction: Food Market Stall (Sandwich)
Outcome: Unanimous Verdict
Salient features: The Reuben
Ratio decidendi: I was first introduced to, and fell head over heels in love with pastrami at Katz’s in New York. The problem I’ve had since then has been finding a pastrami sandwich that warrants even a mention in the same breath as my first love. That search ended with Monty’s Deli in Bermondsey market. Just to be clear, it’s not the same thing but it’s the closest I’ve come in terms of re-experiencing that feeling of satisfaction after. Monty’s Reuben packs layers of moist pastrami, melted Swiss cheese, Russian dressing and sauerkraut between toasted rye.
