Default Want to nosh along with me?

I watched Andrew Zimmern last night,and he was in Montreal, pontificacating about NY vs Montreal bagels He was also in a deli, eating pastrami, which they call smoked beef..This term us not used anywhere in my area. Years ago, there used to be a deli called Jack & Marions, which had a menu, that was like 10 pages, and, was so huge, you could hide behind it..long gone, but the memories linger

What's your favorite bagel,and what do you put on it?
A scooped out bagel with lox, cream cheese, a slice of tomato, and red onion.

What is your favorite all time deli delight?
I love hand carved Rumanian pastrami on light rye.
Also, chopped liver and corned beef combo on light rye

Everthing must be accompanied by, pickles potato salad,and cole slaw

Ahem .... it's called "smoked meat" as in "Montreal Smoked Meat".

And yes, it is the best smoked meat around.

I could take or leave the bagels, but every now and then .... it's worth the six hour drive to Montreal for an authentic smoked meat sandwich. There are delis in Ontario which sell Montreal Smoked Meat, and yes you can buy it frozen at Costco .... but I'd rather have a table at Dunn's on rue Metcalfe, while I nosh away at my yummy sammich.

I have heard it referred to "smoked meat", by Canadians, another term we don't use here, but Andrew referred to it as "smoked beef"..his bad I guess:

Why would anyone want to buy it frozen..?

Well, I worked in a deli for a while in NH. It was a supermarket deli and was nothing like the delis I grew up with in the suburbs of Boston. I remember a place in Melrose called Nate's Deli. It was a favorite place to eat. He cooked all his meats fresh daily. It was excruciating to walk by there and smell the meat cooking. I worked in a factory near there back then. We used to go and have lunch there often. Heaven on a bulkie roll!As to the original question I have to say I love bagels with cream cheese or sometimes just butter and cinnamon, depending on the kind of bagel.

Funny you should mention those 2 items Trip, if there's anything I miss most about Montreal, it's bagels and smoked meat. Nowhere can you get a smoked meat sandwich like in Montreal, nothing comes close, and that goes for the bagels as well. The stuff they sell here cannot even be considered a bagel.
Oh, and I like mine toasted with cream cheese and a tomato slice!

I think that's terrible Donna...you should have some fedexed overnight to you Maybe this could be a new career for you, opening up a bagel shop, in Pictou!!I have had this discussion with Kuki before: If you walked
into a deli here, and, asked for smoked meat sandwich, you would get..

Is that a catagory, or ONE type of meat?

Default memories

Trip,
I haven't lived in Boston for >30 years, but remember bagels made w/the onions in the bagel, not sprinkled on top as made everywhere else. Jack & Marions was a favorite for me when in Brookline; most of my deli memories are from the G&G or Newyorker in Dorchester. My favorite bagel sandwich is an onion bagel, cream cheese, lux (smoke salmon) & slice of onion. Favorite deli sandwich is a corned beef or rolled beef on dark rye.

Cruznut2 mentioned a bulkie roll. Have not had one since leaving Boston, may be a Boston thing. Thinking of a juicy hamburger & slice of onion on a bulkie roll makes my mouth water. Since McDonald's people do not know what a good hamburger is.

OF C'er
Growing up in Mattapan & Dorchester, you sent my mind right back in time with the G& G and the New Yorker. These 2 places are so ingrained in so many of us, it's amazing. You could never do anything wrong, because all around you, someone knew somebody, who knew your Mother, and oy!

These 2 old world deli's were a gathering spot, for the best of the best food...or maybe my memory makes it so

Can you get a good bagel around your way?

Convenience. They are little frozen portions of smoked meat, in plastic pouches. You heat them in boiling water for about 10 minutes, then remove add to bread and enjoy. It's not the same as freshly steamed and carved meat.

No. The best is that chain that sells them when they are still yellow, they don't let them turn brown. I always ask for the burnt ones.

Being from Dorch/Matt area do you remember going to Boston Bagel and the other bagel bakery across the street (forgot the name) and taking hot bagels off the conveyor belt?

The best smoked meat sandwich in the world is Schwartz's Deli in Montreal. One key to their sandwich is the meat is sliced thinly by hand.

I was in Montreal quite a number of years back and had them pack a bunch of their smoked meat briskets, and they flew home with me.

Smoke meat is made from beef brisket. It's not the same as Corned Beef or Pastrami. The meat is the same, but they are all made different by the spicing, and manner of preparation.

Corned Beef and Pastrami are not necessarily smoked.

We would ask for a rolled beef, or, a spiced beef sandwich then.

What I mean is, there is not a catagory called smoked beef on menu's here. If I walked into a deli,and said, one smoked meat sandwich, they would not know what I wanted. Intellectually, a deli owner, may know what that is of course, but, in this neck of the woods, the public did not grow up with that. We have all the regular deli meats, but each must be asked for specifically.

I remember once we talked about a corned beef and chopped liver, or a turkey & chopped liver combo sandwich, huge here, and in Florida....NYC too I bet.. but, you had not really heard about it.

Regional originals I guess
