The Petite Deli:
752 Columbus Avenue
(between Via Buffano & Filbert St)
San Francisco, CA 94133

Hot Pastrami Melt

This old Chinese lady could be the nicest person in Northbeach and she has chosen to defect from her traditional dumplings and fried rice and has perfected a number of American favorite deli sandos. This is a tiny (2 table, 4 chairs) joint on Columbus down from Washington sq. park. This is a regular hot pastrami samich, with the meat and cheese melted together before the fixings come on. She uses some kind of sweet & spicy dressing (maybe from the Orient) along with mayo and mustard, tomato, lettuce, onion, and peppercinis on your choice (recommend the wheat roll). Nothing out of the ordinary on this samich, but the flavor is all up in that mouth, smooshing and pounding out your taste buds. This has become a favorite for lunch on a sunny park day, combo with bag of chips and a beer from local corner store. She takes call in orders too if you want to swing by and pick up. Make sure to strike up a convo with this lady. I commend her for running a successful 1 lady sando shop in SF and focusing on ingredient quality and most importantly, taste. Enjoy!
