Toojay’s Gourmet Deli – Waterford Lakes – Orlando

Back again to our favorite outdoor mall/tween day care center, Waterford Lakes. This time its for Toojay’s Deli where I decided to visit to hanker down on my craving for a nice pastrami sandwich. (Flashback: Katz’ Deli in NYC and their ginormous pastrami sandwiches)

Originating from the island of Palm Beach in 1981, Toojay’s Deli has actually won over 50 awards for “best” deli. I came to see what all the fuss was about.

The Counter at Toojay’s Gourmet Deli – Waterford Lakes – Orlando

Inside, Toojay’s has a very comfortable and homey feeling, with plenty of seating and a large deli counter to boot.

Although the prices may seem a bit high here at Toojays, its all about the quality. I order the pastrami and with the suggestion of the lady at the counter I get it with cole slaw and Russian dressing, a favorite. It would be my first time ordering a pastrami with cole slaw and it actually was pretty good, slightly creamy.

The sandwich is superb and delightful on my tastebuds. It satisfied my hunger for some good deli sandwiches or at least held it over until my next trip to New York 😀

I’ve got to come back and try their desserts and black and white cookies as well as their famed corned beef sandwiches next time!
