Deli.Co Beirut: Breakfast in Europe Without Taking a Plane
Deli.co is where salads and sandwiches are given a new meaning. With every bite comes the feeling like you're travelling around the world... London, New York and back. Lunch at Deli.co is like no other. It's one of my 'coup de coeur' places in Lebanon where I make it a point to visit every other week. I'm in love with their rich and tasty sandwiches, their coffee, their soft serve ice cream, their presentation and professional service. Read the first review, enjoy the photos below and make sure to give Deli.co a try!
Try the roast beef sandwich; and hear yourself asking... "Is this sandwich for real?" This is the first time I see and taste something so good in Lebanon. It starts with its superb look that makes your mouth water. An amazing cereal pain de campagne bread that's lightly toasted with a light chew, filled with layers of sliced meat, rocket leaves, thinly sliced tomatoes, pickles and sauce. Let's start by the least important to the awesome meat. Delicious full bodied sweet pickles, fresh Arugula, beautifully thinly sliced tomatoes and the meat; what meat! Juicy as it should be, rich in color, tender and as perfect as it should be. And the sauce... Just spill around and see yourself smile.
The real brisket, the thick brisket sandwich, the smoked meat, the intense pepper, the tender fat, the real mustard... I was melting, smiling - I felt the world stopped turning. More than fifteen layers of meat, the real deal with mustard. Your teeth will pass the bread very quickly and start swagging inside the meat layers. So tender and juicy, they need absolutely no add-on. I'm in love and I mean it. This is the sandwich you don't want to miss.
The tuna is different from any tuna I've had before. It's a tuna sandwich and includes a load of fresh lettuce, tomatoes and the mix that has a certain zest and juiciness to it. Lovely multi-cereal bread filled with big chunks of tuna cream. Delicious!
The cheese sandwich. An American favorite filled with melted cheese. A sandwich I dream off on a weekly basis. Yellow cheese that is fifty centimeter long in elasticity. Loaded with butter, enjoyably crunchy, intensely flavorful... Simple yet catchy. It's fun to eat!
Wait! you can't leave without trying their soft serve. You'll fall in love with its color, texture and surely its taste. Deli.co's soft serve is not fatty and not milky, it's light yet smooth and adequately creamy.
Unique sandwiches have made it to Beirut! No need to travel anymore, they're here now and at Deli.co.
