Working in New Jersey this week, I decided to get a bite to eat at a nearby restaurant. Harold’s New York Deli Restaurant is on the wrong side of a junction of highways, almost in the middle of nowhere, but it is nominally in Edison, south-west of Staten Island and New York City.
This is the corned beef sandwich I ordered. The picture says it all, but you’re really looking at only one half of the sandwich. The phrase “world’s biggest” is a boast that is worn with pride but with dubious veracity everywhere I go in the United States. When I look at this sandwich I was served at Harold’s, all I can say is “God Bless America!” Es gezunterheyt!
