Took a trip to Kaplans for a late lunch around 2:00. Most patrons were just leaving so there were a good number of tables available however they decided to sit us down at the worst seat in the house, right by the kitchen. I guess the Jewish are also cheap on the seating that they give out. Kidding!! In their defence it was the only seat available for two people but we could have sat at a four person table, there were lots available and it was already after the lunch rush. We decided to move ourselves anyways.

I ordered the open faced beef brisket sandwich on fries and my buddy got the reuben sandwich (corned beef, sauerkraut, Swiss cheese and dressing) with latkas. The latkas were OK, and my fries were fresh cut but should have been doubled fried. I believe fresh cut fries should be doubled fried or at least par fried once. The meal was expensive about 13 dollars each but the sandwiches were very filling and tasty. My buddy says this is the best reuben he has had in this city.

They have good rugelach there.

I got in a fight with them once because they charge something like 50 cents each.

I ordered 10 of them.

They tried to charge me $7.50.

I said 10 x .50cents = $5.00 not $7.50

They said that's for dine in only and when you take out they weigh it instead of charging by the rugelach.

Never went back. but their sandwiches taste good.

I've only eaten at the downtown one, so I didn't know the other one had fries or seated you. I'm kind of meh on downtown, so I should try Oak.

Its prob close to the same as the Alberni.

I am not a big meat sandwich fan. I dont love Montreal Smoked Meat Sandwiches, or Katz Deli in NY.

If you are into those type of sandwiches give Kaplans a try, otherwise I will see you at one of the many delicious sushi spots in Vancouver. Thats more my style.
