McDonald’s infamous McRib is back and I couldn’t resist the urge to purchase one this weekend. These sandwiches were first sold in the 1980’s and disappeared for a while and now they’re back only for a limited time until December 5th (my birthday :)) and who knows when it will come back.

Yes, this boneless slab of pork slathered in sweet barbecue sauce must be extremely bad for you but it’s quite delicious. I just wish it was a little cheaper (it costs $2.99 plus tax in my neighborhood). I think two of them would fill me up but that would be a sin.

I could happily say that I ate DiNic’s Roast Pork Sandwich. It took forever for the food to get into my hands and into my stomach, but, I could say that it was worth it. I ordered my sandwich with sharp provolone cheese and roasted peppers. The roasted peppers gave it a very nice heat factor.

The sandwich is basically meat on a roll. The meat is very nicely cooked with a lot of juices running rampant once you take the first bite. The provolone cheese kept the sandwich together and the roasted peppers gave it a nice kick.

You do not need me to tell you to go try it.

Being so close to New York City and visiting quite often, I was surprised that I still have not gone to Katz’s Deli. You hear about it non-stop on the Travel Channel and the Food Network and everyone clamors for the pastrami on rye. I was fortunate enough to be around the area and decided to try their famous deli creations.

Right when you walk in, theres a cluster of people everywhere with no clear definition on where the line starts and where the line ends. After a few trial and errors on trying to order something, we finally got our sandwich which was priced ridiculously at $15 for 1 sandwich.

Even though it was expensive, I forgot all about the price when I took a bite out of the sandwich. The pastrami was seriously melt in your mouth delicious, no exaggerations.  I ordered the sandwich with mayo, tomatoes, and swiss cheese.

Overpriced but I feel that it is safe to say the best pastrami on rye I have ever ate.

P.S. warning: tourist trap, aka, camera flashes going off everywhere!

After a concert in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, we both got hungry that we decided to go to Oasis at 3 in the morning. There were pizza shops everywhere but this restaurant caught our eye. The service was rude but what do you expect from a busy place like this one.

John ordered the shish taouk which was grilled marinated chicken. It consisted of chicken in a pita with purple cabbage, onions, pickles, greek yogurt sauce, and a dash of hot sauce.

I ordered the falafel sandwich which had the same ingredients. The falafel sandwich costs only $3!

We were both satisfied by the end of the night. If you are ever in the area and are craving some good Greek food, check out Oasis. Definitely worth it after a night of drinking. 🙂
