First, I must start this post with an APOLOGY that I’ve been MIA for so long!! Life has been so crazy and I let it get the best of me. All excuses aside, I’m back!!
— Now on to the good stuff—
So I recently traveled to The Oinkster in Eagle Rock to discover their alleged amazing pastrami. I headed in and ordered the Oinkster Pastrami Sandwich, which included Gruyere cheese, caramelized onion and red cabbage slaw. This combination alone made my mouth water. However, I still had my doubts. Primarily because it is a $9 sandwich, so it better be darn good!
I needed to eat this sandwich fresh, so I took a singular bite before I headed home, assuming that I had self-control. First mistake! After this bite, I immediately started apologizing to the sandwich for doubting it’s awesomeness! Yes, ladies and gentlemen, I apologized to a sandwich. It was that melt-in-your-mouth good. The pastrami and Gruyere melted together while the slaw gave it some crunch. Neat-freaks be warned: this is not the sandwich for you. It is large, messy and a bit difficult to eat. I personally believe it’s well worth the mess.
At this point, you may be wondering what’s the deal with the Usher video. No, I’m not that big of a fan. After my first bite, I behaved myself and put the sandwich away, ready to drive home. Being in the beautiful city of LA, I got stuck in the usual traffic. That’s when the pastrami called my name and I gave in. As I began to devour, Usher’s “OMG” came on the radio and everything seemed in sync. It was like my own fat kid music video. With every bite, I was saying “I found you finallyyyyy! you make me wanna say o-o-o-o my gosh!”.
Thanks to The Oinkster, I have hit my fat kid rock bottom and I liked it. The only question is, where do I go from here?
