Gordita Eateries is heading to the historical side of MacArthur Park, in a busy and ethnic neighborhood whose scent is filled with the poignant aroma from Langers’ Delicatessen off of South Alvarado st.

It’s convenient for a college student to get there with a short walk from the metro-subway purple line. This saves the hassle of trying to find decent and inexpensive parking even though Langers’ also provides parking as well.

Langers’ warmly invites anyone to their cozy 50’s inspired decor diner booths with waitresses whom greet hungry customers with a smile.

This deli is known for their famous pastrami sandwiches which are stacked to the meat gods. Langers delicatessen opened its doors in 1947 with only 12 seats available and today, it has completely changed into one of the top places in Los Angeles to enjoy a classically delicious pastrami sandwich.

This isn’t a normal pastrami sandwich that is pre-packaged or shredded thinly; this is a sandwich a person must come in with a mighty appetite for a monstrous delight.

Pastrami sandwiches is something that are not very common in Los Angeles due to the popularity of bacon-wrapped hot dogs and street tacos. These sandwiches provide an experience outside of the typical spots that normal everyday people bring in.

The most popular item on their menu is the original #19 which is hand-cut hot pastrami with a thick layer of coleslaw in a Russian dressing. The Swiss cheese is then added on top of the meat.

It’s such a gorgeous sight to see when the cheese melts and acts like a bubbly blanket over the layers of flavorsome pastrami.

The next dish is their heavenly pastrami chili cheese fries which can be shared among two people or could be indulged for personal pleasures.

When ordering chili cheese fries at any other fast food restaurants, some places may cook their fries differently or uses a canned chili sauce, but not at Langer’s.

Langers has one of the most perfect orders of pastrami chili cheese fries due to the to the fact that it is completely loaded with an abundant amount of delightful pastrami, graded cheddar cheese, delicious chili sauce and golden crinkled cut fries.

Who would’ve known that his once small but huge place located in a Hispanic and Asian dominant neighborhood would be so popular today?

What’s great about this place is that you can share the food between many people for a great price; it’s the perfect spot to make a hungry customer feel as if they were enjoying their pastrami sandwich on the East Coast.
