For a little bit of history, Schwartz’s Deli, also known as the Montreal Hebrew Delicatessen was established back in 1928 by Reuben Schwartz, a Jewish immigrant from Romania. Schwartz’s signature dish is obviously the classic smoked meat sandwich, served on rye bread with yellow mustard, with a pickle and a side of French fries. Schwartz's claims the unique flavour of their smoked meat come from their mandatory 10-day meat curing time, the high turnover of their meat, and their brick smoke-house.
