Attman's Deli, Little Italy

Finally I went to Attman's Deli! Attman's Deli is a foodie institution in Baltimore, and it slightly pained me I had never treated myself to a lunch from there. Treat is the correct word because a sandwich can cost around $10 at this place. But is it worth it?

Oh delightfully so.

I opted for the Nosh on Rye ($9.99) - corned beef, brisket, swiss cheese, Russian dressing and coleslaw on rye. This knocked the socks off my taste buds. It also kept me incredibly full the whole day, so maybe $10 for a sandwich is worth it! I loved the crunch of the cabbage and the sweetness of the Russian dressing which complemented the savory rye. The meat was perfectly tender and just piled high, as you can see by the picture, they definitely don't hold back. This was a great first sandwich.

My friend tried their cinnamon roll, pictured above, that was flaky and peppered throughout with sweet and plump raisins. This was delicious. It was also quite big, as most of the servings are at this place.

Here's the downside of Attman's - it's loud, busy, and confusing. I urge you to place your orders online, via fax or on the phone and if you did the first two, ALWAYS call to check and see if your order was received. If you do those things, it's smooth sailing. Of course that's after you've spent 40 minutes trying to decide what you're going to order!

I only got to go to Attman's once while working in the city. I walked 20 minutes and had to wait another 20 in line, but it was worth it.

Kevin - Yup, it was about a 20 minute walk for me as well. I am so glad I ordered online otherwise I would never have been back to work in time!

Love Attman's! But I think that waiting in line and yelling your order to the people behind the counter is part of what makes the whole Attman's experience. :-)
