Harold’s of Edison – each order a deli challenge

Met up with my daughter for an early dinner and catching up on our going’s on.  A midway point from both of us is Edison, NJ.  Plenty of places to go there, but I chose Harold’s Deli as it was featured on Monday Night Football game (go Giants) and I was lusting after some pastrami.

Well, there is nothing done small at Harold’s.  There is nothing done large at Harold’s.  Normal large is the kid’s meal at Harold’s.

While pricey, but not when you consider you will be having the sandwich for 3 days and you can take a good amount of rye bread (a loaf) with you in your to go bag, it was just yummy.    So this is the couple of sandwiches we ordered.  She turkey, me my beloved pastrami.

That is a side order of lettuce and bacon (looks like 1/2 pound) along with our 2 pound of meat sandwiches.  The extra bread is to the right and could not fit in the picture.

The pastrami was very good (needs to be much warmer to be called Hot Pastrami),



but still so the perfect meal with a Dr. Brown’s Diet Black Cherry soda.






My daughter was so hungry and the turkey, bacon, rye bread so good she had three (really 2 1/2) sandwiches.

I had one good size sandwich knowing I would eat the rest over the next two days – yes yes.

Now, as we were leaving we saw this fridge of cakes (no the image is not photoshop-ed at all).  These things are almost two feet tall, never mind the apple pie slice that could not make the picture as it was a foot long and 4 inches high.

My daughter commented that this place is made for giants and the tables should be extra large.  I recommend Harold’s, but come hungry and bring a crowd.
