The Whip Tavern Makes A GOOD Hot Pastrami Sandwich.

I went to the Whip Tavern on Saturday for lunch. It's a quaint little place. It's hidden in the rolling hills of Chester County. Customers include horse people, bike riders, motorcycle riders and people with bad teeth that want to pretend they're actually in England. I wish it were a bit larger because you're really packed in but it's pretty cozy. And it really feels like and English pub. Just don't yell "Put some more shrimp on the barbi!" because that's actaully an Autralian thing.

I had the hot pastrami sandwich which is hot pastrami and swiss on marbled rye. Mmmmmm - MMM! It was good. (See picture below).

I'm not sure if you can get pastrami all over the country. There aren't too many places that serve it in Chester County. It's actually pretty easy to make though. It's basically a beef brisket that you cure for a few weeks then you smoke it. Need to put that on my list of "things to cook."

"Smoked his own pastrami" sounds a bit NAUGHTY if you ask me.

Oh divine. It's getting near impossible to find a good hot sandwich in this city. You've got me craving a Corned Beef on rye like crazy now, but unfortunately the place I want to get it from closed ten years ago.

I'll have you not all English people have bad teeth. For example, both of mine are quite nice.

Especially the one I use to core apples.

I had a funny comment when I read that last part "things to smoke" list. Now I've really got nothing.
