Behold, one of the best deli sandwiches in Los Angeles. Bay Cities Deli is located on Lincoln Blvd. in Santa Monica, and this tiny Italian grocery market is very famous for their deli sandwiches. Let me just say, the bread is made fresh daily and it is my FAVORITE sandwich bread ever. Crisy on the outside, fluffy on the inside. If you ask me, bread makes a sandwich, and even though everything that is IN the sandwich is delicious, this fresh bread is to die for.

I’ve been to Bay Cities Deli a couple times, and I always get the hot pastrami with pepper jack cheese, jalepenos, and the works (lettuce, tomato, pickles, onions, mustard, mayo, italian dressing).

All sandwiches above are the HOT PASTRAMI w/ melted cheese, jalepenos, & the works

The Pastrami is amazing. Thinly cut, juicy and flavorful. The best. This sandwich is extremely JUICY & SAUCY, just the way I like things 😉 All their sandwiches are great, and besides the hot pastrami, the most famous ones are:

~Caprese-with water mozzerella, onion, tomato, basil, oregano, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt & pepper.

~Godmother– genoa salami, mortadella coppacola, ham, proscuitto, & provolone cheese.

~Meatball- w/ melted cheese

***I’ll tell you a trick too 😉 If you want a hot sandwich, (hot pastrami or meatball), go to the right and there is a hot section with usually no line. Everyone thinks you have to wait in the long main line to order any sandwich, but that’s only for cold sandwiches. Skip the line and go to the right where you see all the hot things on display, and you can order your hot sandwich there, no number needed 🙂 It’ll save you about 15 minutes!

Bay Cities Deli, one of the best sandwiches in LA. GO! Parking sucks, always crowded with a long line too, but worth it. You can order online if you are in a rush and want to skip the line, only same day orders though.
