Somewhere we've always talked about trying is Refuge on Laurel St. in San Carlos. Everytime we drive by the place is packed. They specialize in pastrami and Belgian beer. When we walked in, I was a little surprised. I assumed that was the sort of place where you ordered at the counter and got a number. Nonono. This was a sit down with wait staff. Everyone looked like they were having great conversation, great food, and great beer. I ordered the chopped pastrami salad which came with homemade picked vegetables, a heaping serving of pastrami, and rye toasts on the side. It was huge and magnificent. I asked for dressing on the side, which I'm really happy about because the picked vegetables are really flavorful and so I barely used the dressing.
