In Houston

Matt, Scott and I make an annual baseball trip to Houston.  At least one of the days in Houston, we will be visiting Kenny and Ziggy's Deli.  This deli would be in the Hall of Fame, if delicatessens had a Hall of Fame.
Its history goes back to the 1920's when Ziggy's grandfather opened a deli in New York.  Actually it was the first deli on Broadway.  Fast forward 70 years and Kenny joined Ziggy in opening a deli in Houston.
As you can tell, I love Kenny and Ziggy's.  I once reviewed it for Global Traveler magazine.  It was the first (and only) deli reviewed by GT.  It's not just me though.  Scott and Matt also love the place.  It is always on our list when we visit Houston.  I have had a lot of turkey sandwiches in my life, but none better than one from Kenny and Ziggy's.
Below is a picture of Scott and his sandwich.  Look at the size of that monster!  It is not only huge, it is incredibly fresh and tasty.

Kenny & Ziggy's Deli is the best. Beauty and the Beef, baby! K&Z is one of the few places I force myself to try something different each time, rather than fall in to the trap of ordering same thing all the time. Made some great discoveries.
Enjoy your time in Houston!

I've been on a weight loss regimen all year and for some reason I'm exceptionally hungry today. You're not helping, John.

Hackenbush-Sorry. I guess I shouldn't mention the hand carved turkey with mushrooms and blue cheese at Minute Maid or the awesome Texadelphia sandwiches!

Reivax-Welcome to the site. Glad you stopped by.
