One thing we seem to lack in California are good Jewish Deli's especially in L.A. Thank goodness that we have Brent to change that. One thing I do have to say however, is that the taste of the food does change based on if they are busy or not, but don't let that stop you from having a great, hearty meal with Jewish love. Shalom!

I've went to Brent's a couple of times and the last time I went there, I was actually a bit disappointed. I usually always get the grilled turkey sandwich, but I decided to try their cold one instead with some soup. The sandwich wasn't all that great. It was definitely filling but lacked in flavor. It was also a little bit dry. So I recommend staying away from the cold sandwiches and sticking with the grilled ones.

I never had matzo ball soup before, so I thought I would give it a try. They definitely give you enough of it. It tasted like good chicken noodle soup with a big ball of mushy bread that was the size of a baseball. It was good, didn't find anything wrong with it. If I ever get sick this is something I would love to eat. I had to take more than half of it home because they gave so much.

I can't stand eating raw meat, so I had my friend Anna eat this sandwich for me. She said it was all right, but it was a bit too raw for her and a bit gammy. She said it also lacked in flavor and I trust her judgment.

Here's some tips you should know if you're going here. Don't get the burgers, I've heard they were kinda salty and it doesn't make sense why you would be going to a deli in the first place. Don't order the cold sandwiches. They lack in flavor in my opinion, but the pastrami should be fine. This place is kinda pricy, but don't expect leaving without taking something home. They give a lot of food. Their bakery is awesome however, the lemon bars are to die for. Plus the black and white cookies are like miniature cakes than cookies. Make sure you stop by there afterwards, if you have room.
