Saul's Deli, Berkeley

I was looking for a bite to eat in Berkeley, but didn't have time for a full sit-down lunch or a long line, so I decided on a long-time local deli, Saul's.

I ordered the pastrami sandwich on rye with mustard and house-made potato salad. Normally, I’m a Reuben guy. I thought, I’d change it up a bit and order something more simple. Saul’s makes a good deli sandwich, but there’s nothing dramatic about it. Everything is good, just not spectacular. This is a high quality sandwich with very good potato salad and fresh bread. No downsides really. Just no upsides either. 

Perhaps my expectations are out of whack. When I order a Reuben or a pastrami sandwich,  I guess I want to be wowed like I am at Veritable Quandary in Portland or Public House in Temecula. 

I'd recommend Saul's absolutely. I may just have to go back a few times to figure out where the "wow factor" is.
