Have a sandwich at Kaplan’s Star Deli

Lydia and I were downtown looking for a place to grab lunch, and Lydia suggested Kaplan’s Star Deli [gm]. I’ve been a lover of Montreal smoked meat sandwiches since a trip to Schwartz’s back east, so I’ve always been on the lookout for a good one in Vancouver.

Kaplan’s smoked meat sandwich is leaner than Swartz’s, which means its not quite as flavorful, but also probably not as likely to result in instant heart attack. It’s definitely a good sandwich and their latkes are quite good too. Lydia loved her reuben, and now wants to try their matzo soup. It’s perhaps a little pricey for an everyday lunch place, but for a once in awhile treat between meetings.

The restaurant itself is modern, clean and comfortable.

    Phat in Yaletown is pretty damn good for Montreal smoked meat sandwiches too.

    Seigel’s (Cornwall at Cypress). Best smoked meat in Vancouver. Period. Also the best bagles in town but that’s not saying much. Kaplan’s had the best smoked meat a couple of years ago but not now.
