Lenny's Subshop #50 Cypress Creek Station

I make no bones about it. I love a good sub sandwich for lunch or dinner at least once a week. I've got a few favorite places to pick one up including LaSpadas, Jersey Mike's and now Tsunami Subs in Boynton Beach. I used to include Lenny's Subs in my list but I have moved them down the list after my last visit. The only Lenny's that I frequent is the location at Cypress Station in Ft. Lauderdale. I've been going there about once a month since I discovered it some time ago. I like it because I watch them slice the meats, cheeses, and add the toppings. I never left their unsatisfied, until now.

I am a big guy and I want a big sub. I have no hesitation ordering a twelve inch or larger sub. It doesn't mean I'm going to eat it all in one sitting but I usually do. But I can't do that at Lenny's anymore. No more large subs. They have removed them from the menu! If you want a large be prepared to order two regulars.

Their reasoning is that "people would order a large sub from the menu on the wall (which includes the prices) and when they got to the register they would complain about the price."

Nuttin for nuttin, but I'm not ordering two subs to make up a large and for that reason Lenny, I'm out!

Between The Bun

I finally got a chance to pop into David Korn's Between the Bun in Boynton Beach. It's just east of I95 in the opposite end of the Publix shopping center on Gateway Blvd. Even though it was almost closing time, Dave and his Dad invited us in. They both go way back in NY deli history having owned a few delis in lower Manhattan.

When we arrived Dave was making a Roumanian steak sandwich for himself and offered a slice for me to try. The medium rare marinated steak was excellent and I instantly knew I would be coming back to this place many more times.

They have so many tempting things it was hard for me to stick to my plan but that little voice inside me kept reminding me that I was here to try the hamburger. I ordered up my BTB 8oz burger without cheese and "run through the garden"  along with their signature, now locally famous crinkle cut fries.

As close to Nathan's that it gets says one South Florida blogger about the hand cut fries. They were delicious. Unfortunately, since I didn't grow up in New York, I can't compare them to the originals of Coney Island.

My hand packed patty was great, cooked perfectly, and with that wonderful gas grill taste that I love. A thinly sliced onion with lettuce and tomato loaded on the bottom were easy to maneuver to the top, along with a slather of mustard. Perfecto!

Michelle ordered a salad with chicken and was very pleased. Dave even offered her a couple of pieces of rye bread to go with the salad. She was really happy to be able to get a can of her favorite Dr. Brown's diet black cherry soda.

Next time I'm going to try the Roumanian Steak sandwich, then the hot dogs, the roast beef, the grilled chicken, the egg salad the.......

Tsunami Subs and Wraps: the next BIG WAVE

When I hear Tsunami  I used to think of that enormous wave that topples buildings as it batters the coastline. Now I think of the enormous sub sandwich available on Woolbright in east Boynton. Tsunami Subs and Wraps has moved onto my list of favorite sub spots in South Florida. The sandwich is kind of a "big brother" to what I have had at Lenny's or Jersey Mike's. Same kind of taste, just more of it.

For my maiden voyage I decided to try the Tsunami Italian #10. All meats and cheeses are freshly cut when the sub is ordered and piled on the house baked subroll which is one of the longest I've seen. Then goes on the lettuce, tomatoes, pickles and whatever else you're into. Wrapped up and presented with a smile.

I'm going back soon to try some of the other subs they offer and especially the philly cheesesteak. Check it out and let me know what you thing of this big wave sub shop.

Direct From Philly Introduces the "Touch Tone"

I dropped in to my favorite Philly Cheese steak place, Direct From Philly, located inside a Chevron gas station on Military Trail in Deerfield Beach, to pickup a sandwich the other day. The owner, Steve, was there and he informed me that they were now open until 10 pm and he has added an addition grill maestro, Antonio. He also introduced me to Antonio's newest cheese steak creation called the "Touch Tone."

The "Touch Tone" only available at Direct From Philly
