The General MuirFriday, November 06, 2015
In Atlanta, we simultaneously took care of deli cravings and came to see poutine in a new light.
Turns out, poutine loves chopped pastrami.
The General Muir in Atlanta took us in and, well, we're ready to go back for more of all of it.
Walking in, to the right is the deli counter. Prepared salads and packages of corned and roast beef, sable...
Ooooh and the challahs, black and whites, cakes:
To the left, the restaurant
We started with the chopped liver with toasted pletzel (think Jewish focaccia) bread
When I make it at home, I leave some pieces more intact to give it a variety of texture, but this way -- the texture of softened butter -- just terrific.
Shug's favorite food on earth is matzoh ball soup, and he liked this one a lot -- not as much as Kenny and Ziggy's, but still...he has his own 'top 10' list (and loved the joke in Hotel Transylvania 2 about the 'monster ball soup').
For Av, a pastrami sandwich:
and that poutine, yes. Yes-yes. Fries, cheese, gravy, and those perfect pastrami chunks. Messy and gooey and the right about of chewy and dark and smokey.
