So I googled around the neighborhood for delis and picked one that seemed fairly traditional. They didn't have a tongue sandwich, but their reuben was good and they sold cups of soup for the temperature of the day (if it's below 0, they will give you money to take the soup). A+ would do again. I suppose I will try a different deli next. The main constraint - which could make this impossible - is that the place has to be close enough to work that I could go there for lunch. This could make it hard to find a tongue sandwich.
I saw a veal tongue at the grocery store the other day. Maybe I should eat that. There are also veal kidneys (without much of the fat, unfortunately). And a lot of pig ears, oddly enough. Not a lot of other offal lately, though. I haven't seen tripe for a while. The kidneys, even though they are veal, are pretty cheap. They usually have beef liver, veal liver, and occasionally chicken liver (not for the last week). Also chicken gizzards. FYI.
I work in the same building as the Israeli consulate. There were protestors outside yesterday chanting, "Stop murdering Palestinian babies." They didn't get in my way, so I didn't mind. The leader was college-aged and scruffy. I wonder what they think they were accomplishing. The only people who could hear them were the people at the $RESTAURANT at the ground level, and they only care about eating their blue cheese bison burger before the lunch hour is up. If the people in the consulate could hear, would they have any influence?
There is a place just outside of lunch-wandering range, but is on the route from here to church and is also near the church. I suppose that makes tongue sandwich acquisition possible.
Hmm: chicken liver and carmelized onion pizza. Or maybe roasted garlic. Does that interest you?
