There are many reasons why visiting your local delicatessen is a good idea. From the moment you walk in and smell the appealing aroma of fresh meats, cheeses, breads, and vegetables, you’ll be surrounded by a nice assortment of delectable foods.
Fresh, High Quality Meats and Cheeses
While supermarket delis may offer a range of cold cuts and cheeses, they generally do not stock and sell the high quality products that are available at your local deli.
Some delicatessen Hamilton sell all sorts of meats and cheeses that are usually sliced to order. These products, as well as a selection of packaged foods, are often imported items that are hard to find at other types of stores.
One of the main reasons why hungry people visit their local delicatessen is to partake of the incredible sandwiches that are served there.
Whether it be on a hard roll, or white, wheat, rye, pumpernickel, or challah bread, sandwiches made at local delicatessens are normally packed with tasty ingredients.
At delicatessens everywhere, smoked meat, chicken salad, pastrami, roast beef, and reuben sandwiches are commonly among the most popular menu items.
Salads and Side Dishes
Another highlight on the menus of delicatessens everywhere is the selection of salads that are usually available. Potato salad, cole slaw and macaroni salad are deli staples that are ideal accompaniments to overstuffed deli sandwiches.
Potato latkes, or potato pancakes are a favorite side dish at local delicatessens around the world. These fried pancakes are usually served with sour cream and/or applesauce.
Poutine made with smoked meat is eaten as both a side dish and as a main course at some delicatessens. For some people, just the half-sour, and dill pickles that are staples at delis everywhere, are a good reason to visit their local deli establishment.
When you patronize your local delicatessen, you can generally expect to receive more personalized customer service than what you would receive at a larger supermarket.
Availability of Kosher Items
Although not all delicatessens are kosher establishments, many of them are. For people who prefer to purchase and eat kosher foods, it’s good to know that there are places where they can find certain items they may be seeking.
Whether it’s for a cinnamon raisin bagel, a container of coleslaw for a party, or a liverwurst and onion sandwich, visiting your local delicatessen can be a fun and appetizing experience.
