Anyone know if Moishe's Pippic is still open in SF? That place was ok.
Yes, Joe is still at it. His son served us last visit. We stop before symphony. Simple, no bells, whistles. Like the matzo ball soup--but I have no comparison.

That's funny as hell. Unless they started making Kalbi and Kimchee Ruebens, (if someone gets rich off that idea remember that you heard it here first) I wouldn't go either.

I mostly remember Saul's fondly because of a beautiful gal who worked there that I had a wild night with many moons ago.

Ahh, didn't realize you meant a K+K reuben. That would be great - maybe you can get Steve's BBQ in the gourmet ghetto to add that to the menu this fall.

I went there about 6 months ago... pastrami sando was good as was the potato salad.

I like the steamed pastrami sandwich at Ted's Market on Howard:

It's not the Jewish deli style, but it's the closest thing to Busy Bee in San Pedro, which is a childhood favorite of mine.

Deli Board also has decent sandwiches... although there's something about the tasted that's just lacking something sometimes, and everything's $3 more now that they moved to a place w/ tables.

You're closer. Get us a percentage. We'll split it. There are Korean taco trucks everywhere why not Korean Jewish deli's? Koreans are more like Jews culturally than just about anyone else. We could get rich.

Canter's on North Fairfax or Langer's on South Alvarado for Jewish Delis and Bay Cities in Santa Monica or Mickey's in Hermosa Beach for just Delis

(As an aside my parents met in Neuschatel, Switzerland while in graduate school)
Thanks. Let me know.

I played disc golf in Neuchatel a few weeks ago. Great city. Crap beer.

I admittedly don't know LA that well. But I am very suspicious of any supposedly Jewish deli that calls itself "The Oinkster."

My dear mother has spent some time in Korea and says that they call themselves the jews of asia.

I completely agree on the Korean remix idea. I would murder a kimchee knish and die for bibim bap gefilte fish on top. Maybe matzo ball on top?

By the way, for the OP, I loved the thread title's reference to "Dr. Strangelove"--one of my all time favorite movies.

It brings back some great memories from my Cal days, believe it or not. I'd throw out a quote, but I don't want to hijack a fun thread.
