The 2010 NBA Playoffs started yesterday, and Los Angeles Lakers fans will be watching to see if their team can take the championship again this year. One of the best places to watch the NBA Playoffs outside of Staples Center is in Benjies Deli’s Bamboo Lounge, located in Santa Ana.
Not only do fans enjoy the wide screen TVs and the full bar, but they’ll be eating the best pastrami sandwich in Orange County. Other menu favorites during sporting events include the Francheesy, a delicious combination of grilled knockwurst sausage, crisp bacon and cheese on a grilled onion roll and served with french fries and coleslaw. Although the food is so good it can make it hard to concentrate on the game, try the Coney Franks Platter or the Cold Rare Roast Beef Plate to eat while cheering on Kobe, Shannon, Lamar, Gasol, and the entire Lakers team.
