A tiny Armenian deli on Hollywood, Sahag’s Basturma is exactly the kind of sandwich spot that everyone needs in their neighborhood. They specialize in two kinds of sandwiches: Basturma, Armenian-style meat that gives bresaola a run for its money as our favorite cured beef, and soujouk, spicy Armenian sausage. We prefer the soujouk sandwich, since its hot pepper and garlic spices come through best on the white sub roll it’s served on. Their sandwiches are less than $9, so well within your budget if you work at Kaiser and want to walk over for a quick lunch.
