    This was very cheesy and flavorful.

    The Bambino (capicola, hard salami, pepperoni, provolone, Italian salsa, mayo, oil dressing)

    The Deli Tour: Manhattan Deli, cont'd

    This was a great place for the best deli sandwiches in Des Moines. Manhattan Deli is celebrating 30 years of serving quality food. This has to be one of the only delis in the area that cooks it's own meats. The beef and turkey are marinated and cooked to perfection. Fred offered me samples of the eye of round and the turkey breast. They were perfectly seasoned, moist and tender. Fred even offered a taste of their grinder meat. This was some of the best I have ever tasted. For those who do not know, grinders are a Italian sausage/ground beef mixture with extra seasonings. The Manhattan Deli sells over 100 grinder sandwiches every Thursday!

    Fred said there are many sandwiches that are not on the menu yet. He has many books on deli sandwiches.

    Three generation Deli

    Victoria, Mitch, Fred



    I will definitely stop back for another Zach Johnson at the end of The Deli Tour!

    The Deli Tour: Palmer's Deli

    Palmer's Deli Market — Central Iowa's best deli

    This is one place I said I would not visit. They have brownies that have the crumb of cake and not much of a selection of meats. With five locations, I think they lost the "hometown feel".



    This was a very spacious dining room with open ceilings which translates to a very noisy room.
    A chalkboard menu that was easy to read with not much imagination and limited deli meats.





    The sandwich I selected was the #17 Sub Ham, salami, cheddar & Swiss cheeses, lettuce, tomato, and red onion on a ciabatta hoagie. This was a very good sandwich. The ciabatta was a perfect match.



    We also tried a few of their salads. They were ok.

    Back to...





    This time we were going off the deli path to try one of their burger specialties.

    (note the scale)


    I challenged a coworker to the Quadzilla!



    Our Quadzillas with two sides!



    I finished in under 10 minutes.



    My challenger could not finish.

    Come on, pgg. I'm surprised that with your appetite, you haven't made any recommendations on this thread. There has to be someplace that you like to eat at, besides the all you can eat joints.

    Just so you know, pgg plans on sampling all of the restaurants posted here.

    An eating contest between pgg and IMGreat might just be a sight to see. For it seems that The Great One knows all of the good places to eat. ( As to see who can eat the most, no time limit )

    I really don't eat that much

    I could go for one of those quadzillas though

    those sandwiches look nice but nowhere enough meet. And they put way too much veggies on them

    The Deli Tour: Macabees Kosher Deli

    http://www.maccabeeskosherdeli.com/

    Glatt

    Glatt means "smooth" in German and Yiddish. In the context of kosher meat, it refers to the smoothness, or lack of blemish, in the internal organs of the animal. In the case of a scab or lesion on a cow’s lungs specifically, there is debate between Ashkenazic customs and Sephardic customs. Ashkenazic Jews hold that if the patch can be removed and the lungs are still airtight (a process that is tested by filling the lungs with air and then submerging them in water and looking for escaping air) then the animal is still kosher, while Sephardic Jews hold that if there is any sort of scabbing or lesion on the lungs, then the animal is not kosher. “Glatt” meat would literally mean that the animal has passed the stringent Sephardic requirements, although today the word is rarely used in that context.[citation needed]
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shechita#Glatt



    We ordered the
    WHOLE MEGILLAH
    If this does not fill you up, nothing will.

    You will get a TOTAL of 2/3 pound meat!
    Choose which ones to pile on.

    You also get 2 scooped sides!! and a drink.
    This is meal enough for two, but you don't have to share! And we will give you a fountain Drink Free too. (Fountain drink included, canned drink add $1.)
    $19.99
    I chose beef pastrami, turkey and beef salami on a whole loaf of focaccia. Rabbi Jacobson is very proud of his kosher deli.



    This was a very tasty sandwich. The meats were some of the best I have ever eaten.



    yummm...

    ...is Goldie's!



    This is a cozy little diner with a few tables, booths and counter seating. I love sitting at the counter to interact with all of the employees.

    And Goldie's has more than ice cream! A variety of fresh homemade pies are available too!



    On to the award winning tenderloins!

    The original. This is a very meaty tenderized pork center loin. The breading to meat ratio was perfect. I chose the Goldie fries. These are a battered steak style fry.
