NYC Legend Katz’s Deli Trolls Vegetarians With Their Mile-High Cheese Sandwich

If you go to the legendary Katz’s Deli in New York, chances are you’re getting a sandwich piled high with corned beef or pastrami. It’s definitely not a place that you’d think would gain fame for its vegetarian options, however, Twitter users have uncovered a mile-high cheese sandwich at the deli that’s definitely sticking it to non-meat eaters.

The item is listed on their menu simply as a “cheese sandwich,” cleverly disguising the fact that it’s actually a massive monstrosity containing at least a dozen slices of cheese on it. One Twitter user described it as an “abomination,” while others wondered as to why someone like Katz’s would have such a vegetarian item.

According to Eater, the item has been on the menu for 15 years, and is definitely not meant for the typical vegetarian palate. Owner Jake Dell says that it only showed up on the menu after vegetarian customers demanded for a vegetarian option. Guess that if they want a true Katz’s deli sandwich experience, they’re going to get it, mile-high piles and all.

In total, it has 3/4 of a pound of cheese, the same weight of meat that goes on Katz’s more traditional options, meaning that you REALLY have to love cheese to get this sandwich.

They also offer vegetarian items that aren’t sandwiches, like latkes and blintzes, which they say tastes a lot better than a cheese sandwich. If you’re a vegetarian looking for something to eat at Katz’s, get those unless you want to be stuck with a mountain of dairy to tackle.
