For 3 months Eli Challenger (you may remember Eli from our post on Rupert and Ruby) and Kubrick’s on Stanley Street are teaming up to create a one-stop breakfast and lunch sandwich pop-up shop.
Some of the fresh sandwich and salad options Eli’s Deli are serving up include a Maple Bacon and Egg Sandwich ($10) and a Roast Vegetable Salad ($5). With free delivery within a 7km radius, you can enjoy a fresh and clean lunch without even leaving the office! Alternatively you choose to eat-in at Kubrick’s. Despite being a bar, the space is light with white walls covered with geometric forms, making it perfect for a daytime deli. I started my lunch off with a light Tumeric Quinoa Salad ($5). The quinoa salad included broccoli and green beans that were cooked to perfection, giving a satisfying crunch. Topped with mint and toasted nuts then drizzled with a lemon and olive oil dressing, the salad was perfect for a Spring afternoon. What I really enjoyed about the dish was it’s freshness and simplicity. While not being anything fancy, the dish was everything a salad should be: tasty and full of good stuff. Jam packed with quinoa, I wasn’t left hungry either. But just for good measure I thought I better try something else on the menu. The Smoked Brisket ($10) with kale-kraut, Swiss cheese and mustard is a must try at Eli’s Deli. Served on deliciously soft and fresh bread, this sandwich was a well balanced all-rounder. The smokey pastrami was complemented perfectly with a bite of mustard and melted Swiss cheese while the kale-kraut added a refreshing pickled crunch. For $10 this sandwich isn’t small, something I should have considered before ordering both a salad and a sandwich. Nevertheless, it was so delicious that I gobbled up the entire thing. Eli’s Deli is serving up the perfect, full-flavoured healthy lunch that leave you full for the rest of the day. With the pop-up deli closing at Christmas, you better get in quick if you want to give one of these yummy lunches a try.
