Harry's Deli - Closed

17881 Sky Park Circle, Ste. A Irvine, CA 92614 | Irvine | 949-261-2116

Location Description:

Harrison Kho makes sandwiches-classic ones such as New York pastrami and grilled cheese. His food is neither avant garde nor fusion-y. His Harry's Deli is nothing more than an unadorned office-park lunch stop located directly beneath the landing path of John Wayne-bound planes. So, why is it a phenomenon? Quality, quality, quality: Harry makes just about everything from scratch-the mayo, the meatballs, even the pulled pork. The latter is rubbed in spices and slow-roasted to become two-fisted sandwiches both messy and great.
