I'm going to Hong Kong tomorrow for a week.

<p>Any tips?</p>

Twitch = Zappos

<p>I just realized that Amazon paid approx the same price for Twitch that they paid for Zappos. Maybe even a little more. Puts things in perspective. Gaming is real.</p>

Absolutely the best.  My boyfriend and I went here for dinner one night, and it was enough calories for three days, but so worth it.  The pastrami sandwich melted in my mouth and the fries weren't bad either.  My boyfriend had the reuben with all the fixings and loved it.  The sandwiches were MASSIVE and we didn't have a bite left.  I can't wait to go back!!  Plus the history of it is fun.  The owner just did an interview about how the NY deli is a dying breed, so get it while you can.

I ordered my pastrami on rye and I just watched as the dude at the counter chop into a huge slab of meat.  I don't know about you, but tender, juicy meat that falls part at the bone never ceases to excite me.What I love about the pastrami is that it is absolutely perfect.  It has potent spice, it's juicy, and the meat is cut thick.  What you get is a simple sandwich with meat that just disintegrates in your mouth.They take this perfect meat and they drop it into rye bread and mustard and they serve it with a side of pickles.  If you want to dissect perfection for the sake of comparing it to other places, then these accompanying elements are where others' can gain ground.  If I were to choose my top spot for pastrami, I'd still choose Langers in Los Angeles over this place because of Langer's twice baked rye and their coleslaw.  These elements perfectly accent the bread and meat.  Katz has the perfect meat, but Langer's better assimilates the ingredients into a collective sandwich.But don't get me wrong....Katz is an amazing sandwich with arguably the best-cured pastrami anywhere on the planet.  I'd definitely go back when I visit NYC.  It's definitely worth a visit.

Believe the hype, I can honestly say that this was the best pastrami sandwich I've ever eaten. Smokey, tender, and packed full of flavor. The sandwich itself gets a 5-star rating (very rare from me), because it literally redefined what I now think a pastrami sandwich should taste like (the singular criteria for a 5 star rating in my books). Because the merits of this place have been so well covered by others, maybe I'll focus on why it didn't get a 5 star rating overall:1) Damn, that's one expensive sandwich.2) The pickles that they served were under-pickled and lacking real flavor, essentially amounting to slightly vinegared baby cucumbers. Is it overly picky to deduct a star for pickles? Probably. But, given that fresh pickles are an important staple of any deli, and given the ridiculously high standards that a 5-star recommendation should demand, I feel as if this is warranted.3) The fries (and other sides) are an afterthought. Total lack of seasoning and could have easily come out of a bag from the frozen food aisle. The only redeeming thing in this regard however, is that the sandwich is so filling no sides are even necessary.Overall, this place is absolutely worth checking out if you're in the city. A  NYC legend for a reason.
