This hole in the wall thing is really becoming quite the popular thing around Adelaide, with more and more poking their noses out into the streetscape. Often a secondary outlet for an existing larger venue, one of the earlier adopters of has been Pink Moon Deli.
With their parent establisment – Pink Moon Saloon – already well established on the popular Leigh Street, this expansion has given them an even greater scope to be feed the masses delicious product from their wood ovens. With an exclusive focus on sandwiches, this may sound a little ho-hum, however a cursory glace over their menu reveals something anything but this.
How about these combinations – slow cooked brisket with lettuce, tomato, horserashish mayo on rye; brick oven pastrami, mustard, pickle and lettuce on rye; a cuban featuring woodfired pork, smoked ham, swiss cheese, mustard pickle, mayo on a cuban roll; or a veggie stack with woodfired capsicum, mushroom, zucchini, tomato and grilled cheese on sourdough. This is ignoring the rueben sandwich and the amazing Fried Chicken Fridays amongst other things.
With most prices around the $12-14 mark, there is good value to be had here too. Throw in a side of hand cut chips with mayo to share ($7) if you so desire, and even a craft beer or cider should the mood take you, and now you have a story.
Who suddenly wants a sandwich? I thought so.
Pink Moon Deli are located at 17a Leigh Street, Adelaide. They are open 7am till 4pm, Monday to Friday.
