Holy 1.5 Pound Corned Beef Sandwich @ Heckman’s Deli Bethesda

Big G

Unleash the beast of Big G sandwich with 1.5 pounds of corned beef from a unique deli in Bethesda, DC suburb. Dam, that thing is big! I’m a size queen when it comes to food, but dam, that is one massive sandwich that even I might not be able to handle. Its never-ending layers of corned beef. It was topped with a tone of coleslaw and 1000 island dressing. Luckily there was so much corned beef that all the extras didn’t draw it out too much. The best way to get a little bit of coleslaw and lots of corned meat in every bite Bread was crunchy and a bit hard. With such an impressive display of portions, I was expecting crazy flavors. The corned beef was tasty with the delightful flavor combination that left an impression on our taste buds, but at the same time, it didn’t have the wow flavor that the size of it left on us. I didn’t even want to try to bite into that thing and went directly for a knife and a fork. But even with a big knife, it was kind of hard to cut through all that bread. Defiantly too much food here and ended up turning it into an open sandwich by getting rid of top slices. I want more corned beef goodness in my mouth. Since there is not enough food on this sandwich, it also comes with an excellent potato salad order. I could only finish half of it and ate the rest for the next couple of days. Even though it’s a very expensive sandwich at $25, but it’s so worth it. Look for the specialty sandwiches for The Big G and get ready for crazy sandwich noming.

Russo’s Tower Sandwich $15

My big mouth vs. big sandwich when it comes to eating a tower size sandwich from this unique deli in Bethesda, one of DC’s fancy foodie suburbs. How do you eat this monstrosity? Even masters of eating big things like me have no way to get my mouth around it. This required something extra special, a FORK! Four decker sandwich comes with not just one or two, but with three different types of meats: corned beef, pastrami, and turkey between four pieces of rye bread. Every layer comes with a whole lot of delicious coleslaw drenched in thousand island dressing. Oh, yea, this is one massive tower of sandwich awesomeness with great flavor combinations. Usually, not a fan of coleslaw, but they put something in it that makes it taste great. Don’t recommend eating the whole thing unless you want to feel like a nap type right there under the table.

Heckman’s Cheesecake $7

There is no authentic dinner without large brick of cheesecake dessert from one of the unique delis in Bethesda, DC suburb. A somewhat annoying patron of this deli was raving about how good the cheesecake is. So we decided to test out all the claims and order a slice. Figure it’s just a slice and won’t be too much since we are crazy stuffed from Big G Sandwich, one of the biggest things we ever put in our mouth. Is this a slice? More like a whole cheesecake that even two of us had trouble finishing. For an extra two dollars, you can get strawberries and whipped cream. We always go for the extra things because we can never get enough of sweet things. It wasn’t just big but very thick and dense. Every bite felt very heavy and a bit too cheesy. It didn’t have that light and fluffy texture we came to expect. Always nice to try a different take on dishes. It’s defiantly on a heavy side of desserts, which kind of made it hard for us to eat, but don’t worry, it was all gone at the end. We don’t leave empty plates behind.
