Friday is matzo ball soup day. Combine with the chicken salad sandwich and you will be happy for the rest of the day. Wonderful sandwiches with a daily feature. A great deli in the heart of the city.

If a deli is what you crave, you’d be hard pressed to find a better one in Winnipeg. I got a classic pastrami on rye, and it was great. The homemade soup was superb as well!
