For me, no trip to LA would be complete without stopping at Canter’s Deli, the legendary 24 hour Jewish deli located in the Fairfax district of Los Angeles. While there we indulged in pastrami, borscht, a knish, kugel and of course sour pickles. I ordered cherry phosphate, well, because I could. As chance would have it, Holly our waitress is orginally from San Francisco and had once been part of the Devil-Ettes. Talk about kismet. She was great. If you find yourself at Canter’s, be sure to ask for her.
