Ever find yourself craving something delicious and well-made, but not really looking for the sadness that is most fast food? I give you, the side-window at the Mile End Deli in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn.
I’ve walked past this establishment with the yearning desire to grab a seat inside but I’m always in a hurry and don’t have the time. But luckily for their side-window service, I was in luck.
The Jewish delicatessen has an additional location in NoHo, Manhattan and a menu packed with so many delicious things that I’m determined to try them all.
Mile End Deli (97A Hoyt Street, Brooklyn)
In a hurry, I browsed through their brunch and lunch menu with a slew of items including the Smoked Meat Sandwich, Poutine, Chicken & Matzo Ball Soup and more.
Taking my time in deciding what I would grab on the go, I went with “The Beauty” — which turned out to be the best decision of the day. The selection included lox, cream cheese, tomato, onions and capers on a bialy. So basically, heaven in my mouth.
To be honest, anytime I see capers on a menu-item, I’m usually biased to choose that specific thing. One, because I don’t cook with capers often and two, because I love them. So salty and delicious, they added a perfect punch to the lox and cream cheese.
I had foodie dreams about this dressed up bialy and will without a doubt be back at Mile End Deli soon, to taste the rest of their menu, preferably with plenty of time to kill.
