The Bad Jew
Where we've featured it
The Bad Jew is “A Very Unkosher Jewish Deli Pop-up” that’s been operating weekends out of The Nosh in Beverly Hills and The Naughty Pig in Weho. The chef cures her own pork pastrami and corned pork using a secret spice mix - and the results are tremendous. They’ve got two sandwiches: The Reubecca, a corned pork Reuben with havarti, pickle-heavy Russian dressing, and sauerkraut, or the Danny Boy, with pork pastrami, slaw, and that same dressing. Both are excellent, and choosing between them is like choosing a favorite child - so just order both and you won’t have any regrets. Follow them on Instagram for all the latest locations and info.
Rebecca King is the titular Bad Jew at her “very un-kosher” sandwich pop-up, which operates weekends out of places like The Nosh in Beverly Hills and Naughty Pig on the Sunset Strip. She wood-smokes and cures all her own meats for sandwiches like the Reubecca (a corned pork Reuben) and the Danny Boy (a pork pastrami Reuben).
