Stachowski's Market & Deli

Stachowski's Market & Deli is located on the corner of 28th St. and P St. approximately 4 blocks north of M St. in Georgetown.  Offering a plethora of fresh cut meats and sausages—many from local farms—like dry-aged short-ribs and Kansas strip steaks, pork loin chops, and pig trotters, this full service butcher shop, market and deli is also famous for its ginormous sandwiches. Closest Metro is Foggy Bottom.

Keith and I strolled over to check out the deli for lunch on this gorgeous Fall Sunday.  The shop itself itself is quaint, with a little stand of produce in front, a couple refrigerators on the side and a large deli stand displaying meats that separates the store front from the back kitchen.

The meats looked high quality with a variety of prepared items: cherrywood-smoked chickens, duck prosciutto, Irish bacon, cured salmon, and chili-rubbed coppa.

The massive sandwiches are listed on a chalkboard. I chose the Turkey Club, which sounds almost dainty alongside offerings like kielbasa with kraut and the Hot Pastrami, which Keith ordered.

They went to work right away on our order, while we perused the rest of the store.  A couple fresh quarter-sour pickles were included with our sandwiches.  We walked a few blocks to sit by the waterfront.

The Turkey Club came with bacon, sprouts, avocado, Swiss, and mayo. The double-decker monster, with crunchy bacon and piles of freshly-smoked turkey was almost too hard to eat.  The turkey was cut thick and a bit dry, but you could tell it was super fresh.  The bread was also thickly cut with a crunchy crust.

Keith enjoyed the behemoth Hot Pastrami sandwich made with thick slices of pastrami with mustard on pumpernickel.  The meat was heavily seasoned, in a good way.  There was enough meat for at least two sandwiches.  They even provided an extra slice of bread, so you could easily save the leftovers or share with someone else.

While we ate our sandwiches on the bench by the water, a handful of people who walked by either gawked at our handfuls, or stopped to inquire where we purchased them.  Overall, they were filling and intrigued us enough to want to return and try other selections.
