Pop’s Beef Brisket at Bub and Pop's
Crafted by a trained chef as an homage to his grandparents' deli, this is fast becoming one of Washington's favorite sandwiches. Slow-braised beef brisket with apple-horseradish cream, shaved five-year-aged Gouda and veal jus make for a sloppy yet magical combo that's a bit pricey for a sandwich - but totally worth it.
Price: $8 for a half; $12 for a whole (add a fried egg for $1)
Insider Tip: Those chocolate-chip-oatmeal cookies by the cash register? They’re also used to make vanilla-bean ice cream sandwiches.
