I finally went to the renowned Sherman's Deli and Bakery in Palm Springs. The sandwiches are delicious and the bakery is a delight!
My parents have been taking my brother and I to Palm Springs since we were really young. We would always try different places to eat as there is always something new or not yet adventured. Sherman's Deli is one we would always drive by and talk about how we never ate there, we have to go and maybe next time. Well "next time" turned into years, until finally last year, we finally went.
On the particular day we went, it was very crowded and we were on our way out of town. We opted for a take-out sandwich and browsed their bakery while we waited. The lady behind the counter was very friendly and nice. She was also extremely proud of all the products and urged us to try all the samples, even pulling out new ones or ones that caught our eye.
One unusual and rather impressive item that caught our eye was this gigantic cream puff. While it may not look big from the photo, we were wondering just how big is this cream powdered cream puff. Weighing in at one whole pound, this monster is the birthday cake equivalent of cream puffs. Stick a candle on it and call it a party!
Finally we get to the sandwich! i went with one of my favorites, a simple turkey with Swiss, packed with lettuce, tomato and onions. They definitely don't skimp on the meat and you wont be disappointed with the portions. I chose to get the potato salad, which isn't pictured, served on the side in a small single serving cup. Of course it also came with a delicious deli pickle spear. I love pickles.
