So how many people have passed this place on Convoy Court and thought it was some office's al fresco dining area?
I must have passed this place a st least a thousand times and thought exactly that. I'm not sure why the sign with "Deli" on it never registered. But I was working on a recent holiday and noticed the signs for the first time....and they were open too!
It's a tiny shop, very mom-and-pop. The owners are Korean I believe, quiet, but very nice. The prices are good, just about everything under six bucks.
The offerings seemed very routine and it turned out my Clubhouse Special ($5.70) met those expectations.
It's as advertised, turkey, bacon, ham, swiss, with a bit too much mayo on decently toasted bread.
Man, what a boring post huh?
Well, I decided to see what else they had on the menu a couple of days later; it was a Thursday, a lo' and behold, a Teriyaki Steak Sandwich ($6.30):
You know, the meat could have used a bit more marinade time; it was obviously pre-cooked and microwaved, and it was, as expected not the most tender version I've had. But, like I've mentioned before, this is totally comfort food for me.
I grew up eating stuff like this; teri beef sandwiches......
And it was the mayo and the onion on it, followed by a couple of breath mints that really did the trick for me.....for a short moment, I was 10 years old again, eating a teriyaki sandwich on a table in front of some non-descript shop. The sun was shining and it seemed the rest of the day was going to be just fine. It was just good timing I guess.....
But who's going to complain about that?
