“You will not believe it! A real NY Deli - in Ra'anana!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

Just got back from a visit to the "Big Apple" and so our memories of what a real Deli were quite sharp. We walked into this hole in the wall place without any expectations. The place is sort of out of the way (just off Achuza St,- the main drag of the town) at the entrance/exit into an underground parking area. This even lowered our expectations even more. Once we walked into the place we realized that we were about to have one of those experiences that were completely contrary to our expectations. The walls were decorated with photos of foods and deli's from far away and long ago. It was a cold, wet, winter night and we were the only people there when we entered. This was good because we had the undivided attention of Moshe who delivered up the kind of pastrami & corned beef sandwiches that we did imagine we would see in Israel. The meat was tasty, moist, spiced just right and not at all fatty. Although the cream soda & root beer were not Dr Browns ( some stuff from a boutique bottler in a strange place called LA ) it was much better than the usual cola. The coleslaw and potato salad were made by a pro who knew what they were doing. The pickles, on the other hand, were a real disappointment for someone familiar with a NY jewish pickle. We were told that they were trying to develop a good knish recipe - we wait patiently and plan to check up on them whenever we get to Ra'anana.
The ambiance was sort of like a deli in 1950's Brooklyn but the meat overcame everything else!
Open until 20:00
