Taste: In Search Of … Turkey Sandwiches


So Special: Main Line Jewish-deli stalwart Hymie’s offers the belly-busting Schlemiel, piled high with thickly sliced roast turkey breast, mounds of slaw, and a generous schmear of Russian dressing, perfectly accompanied by garlic pickles from the relish bar.

So Clubby: In addition to the usual suspects — turkey, applewood-smoked bacon, lettuce, tomato, mayo — the gooey delight that is the Lucky Strike club also includes sliced avocado and a ­sunny-side-up egg.

1336 Chestnut Street, 215-545-2471, bowllucky-strike.com.

So Messy: Snag yourself a seat at the always-busy Dutch Eating Place counter and order the bountiful turkey platter, a gravy-smothered tribute to Turkey Day, with creamy real mashed potatoes, tart cranberry sauce, slaw, and a birch beer, for $8. Open Wednesday through Saturday.
