Brunch @ Caplansky's Delicatessen

I've heard so much about Caplansky, so I was absolutely thrilled to be able to finally eat here one day for a very late brunch.
I was very excited when I saw cheesecake on their dessert menu, but unfortunately, they had ran out by this time. I did, however, tried their soup special of the day.
Creamy onion and potato soup was part of my sandwich combo. The soup was satisfying and delicious, even on a warm day.
Of course, we had to try their famous smoked meat sandwich, and comparisons with Montreal's Schwartz are inevitable. I must say that I personally prefer the smoked meat from Schwartz, which was more moist, juicy and tender. However, since I don't have a chance to visit Montreal very often, the smoked meat here is adequately delicious. I was, however, surprised by the small size of the sandwich (we ordered a regular size).
Caplansky has a variety of homemade mustard to choose from. I went straight for super extra hot and slathered it all over my half of the smoked meat sandwich. Smoked meat and mustard make a heavenly combination!
The other sandwich that I ordered was the BBQ beef brisket on a bun- glazed with their homemade bbq sauce and served with crispy onion on an onion bun. For the same price ($8), this sandwich was enormous compared to the smoked meat one! It was literally a hill of succulent, melt-in-your-mouth beef brisket piled high on the bun. I couldn't take a bite out of the sandwich without the meat falling off the side. I could barely eat half of this, so I had to pack the rest of it home for my mom's enjoyment. Without doubt, I'll be going back to Caplansky's very soon to try out other menu items.
