  • These two can't stand each other. Sandwiches look good though.

  • The food looks yummy but these girls don't know the first thing on how to host a food show 😶

  • Again, Katz is not all that. Last time I went the pastrami sandwich was $28. Now it's probably higher. You literally get the pastrami and two buns and some pickles. I personally don't think it's a mind blowing sandwich I still think they could add ingredients to make it unique. But since it's just pastrami and bread for $28 I don't see myself coming back.

  • wonder how much it’s cost now

  • Funny that she called her out for eating while she spoke despite doing it before her when they took the first bite

  • 3:40 she talks with food in her mouth… 3:44 she tells her friend to swallow before talking …. Practice what you preach hahaha

  • This is sooo biased. How is this a fair review. The Asian girl had it in her head that the last place was her favorite. It always has, and always will be. Then how can she give a fair review?

    Francis Dao 17/10/2022 am9:40
  • I've been to Katz. Absolutely amazing. Not sure if they are still open. I also ordered over the phone when I lived in NC. They sent it and I steamed it. 👌. There's also the Pastrami King out east.

  • Super thin cut, almost paper. Chocolate rye roll, toasted with butter. Mustard, sure, but dill relish too. And cheese.

  • Harrods in Edison NJ is very good too.

    Glen Proctor 17/10/2022 am9:40
  • I would go to Harry and Ida's just so I could projectile vomit inside their front door. Take the yuppie fuckin' sammich and throw it right in the goddamn garbage.

    Martin 17/10/2022 am9:40
  • Worst food reviewers I've ever seen. These women should be fired from this gig ASAP.. Horrible personalities. I can get two random people off the street in NYC and it would be ten times better.

    Tsadik Kaplan 17/10/2022 am9:40
  • Not interested in the psychology* happening between the two hosts at all (*maybe an attempt of acting?). Good pick op places but new culinary insights missing: "mmmh, yeah this is it" doesn't tell you much about the food… stopped watching half way through.

    F. D. 17/10/2022 am9:40
  • I want to like to just eat steak and pork chops and ham and cheese sandwiches

  • Wow ♥️♥️♥️

    Arlene Agapito Vibar 17/10/2022 am9:40
  • Katz' deli is THE BEST! Whenever I visit from Baltimore I usually get at least three sandwiches get them wrapped to go bring them back to Baltimore and I make three more sandwiches out of those three sandwiches! And those flavors are amazing! KUDOS TO KATZ'S DELI!

  • Is it just me or is the Herring bone girl kinda mean? She most def did not pass the vibe check. It felt like she kept trying to check the other girl,

    Sherri Genesys 17/10/2022 am9:40
  • Everyone in the comments is talking about the hosts not getting along and passive aggressive behaviour, I don't see it lol. They are literally just talking about the food and then eating.

  • Stop talkin when you're chewing the food in your mouth…didn't your mum tell you that?
