Located across from historic MacArthur Park, Langer’s is a cultural heritage institution in Los Angeles. Founded in 1947, Langer’s Delicatessen and Restaurant has been serving their famous #19 Pastrami, Swiss Cheese and Cole Slaw Russian Dressing for the last 66 years.
Their Pastrami sandwich is truly exceptional. Their #55 – Corned Beef with Cole Slaw and Russian Style Dressing is dish that should not be missed too.
Finally, Langer’s also serves heart-warming boiled Chicken and vegetable soup with Matzo balls and noodles. One of my all time favourite soups. The portions are big but if you have room, have side dishes too. Langer’s also serves comforting chili cheese fries. Personally, being a small person I found that the hot Pastrami or Corned Beef sandwich is more than enough to satisfy my appetite.
Always packed with regulars and a batch of L.A. cops, that makes Langer’s feel like you just step into a scene in a 1950’s film noir movie, this place offers great heart warming dishes and an ambiance. The decor takes you back in time and reminds me of LA diners of 1950’s. I love Langer’s and certainly a place that I am sure I will keep coming back to. The service is quick, ambiance is fun and the food is great, what else can you ask for? Well there is just one for me – they don’t serve Italian espresso. Just drip-coffee. Which I guess makes it all the more authentic, but if you have a caffeine addiction like me make sure you grab an expresso in the morning before you order #19. Aside from that I would highly recommend Lanager’s to all those who want to try a fantastic hot pastrami sandwich and experience a truly local L.A diner.
