Late Night Pastrami Sandwich Pop-Up Comes to Sansom Street

WHEN_ABE_MET_DIZOn the next four Saturday nights, Dizengoff is going to open back up at 10 p.m. to sell Montreal-style pastrami sandwiches. The promotion, called When Abe Met Diz runs September 10th, 17th, 24th and October 1st.

The pastrami will be served, tucked into a caraway rye pita and topped with beet-pickled turnips, dill tehina, sumac slaw and fried onions. The sandwiches are $12 each and we expect that they will go extremely quickly. Wash down the sandwich with “friesling,” a frozen riesling drink spun up in Dizengoff’s lemonnana machine.
