the sandwich


it wasn't long ago that i posted this photo and lamented that i had never been to the historic philippe's restaurant for a french dip sandwich. as you can see from the above photo, that was remedied.

meredith's parents were in town for a visit, and so when we picked them up from union station i suggested we take the short walk to this place. it was pretty wonderful (if not a little over-priced). i'm not sure what they put in their mustard, but it made the sandwich irresistible. i ordered the beef, but you also have the choice of turkey, lamb, or pork.

I'm happy to hear of this place. J and I are going to make the trip soon. This looks like his kind of sandwich.

Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's day Ben

Yes, the french dip. Had a million of um (like the macaroni, kind of bitter) You can buy the mustard at the counter. Blows out your sinus like nothing else can. Am I wrong?

You can also buy the mustard at Fish King in Glendale, which is where I most frequently get it.

The turkey dip is definitely my favorite.
