If you live in Auckland and haven’t heard of this place, you may want to check it out. Federal Delicatessen is in front of SkyCity and besides another famous food place, Depot Eatery.
See below for more photos of this food place and of course, the lovely food.
Now for the food:
The menu follows the American diner theme. My sister got the Chicken Salad Sandwich which I’ve had the first time we went here. We both liked it but it was hard to finish. The chicken salad filling is thick but it is really good and tasty.
This Montreal Poutine is a popular choice. It is fries with cheese curd and gravy. The combination doesn’t sound great but as it says on their menu, trust them on this one. You can order a small or large serving and the one above is the small size. There were only two of us and we struggled to finish all of it.
I still had room for dessert so I got the Banoffee Pie. Who am I kidding though, I always have room for dessert. If there are more than two of you, I recommend getting the 3-Way Combo which is a choice of three of their dessert pies: this Banoffie Pie, NY Cheesecake, Pumpkin Pie and Lemon Meringue Pie. We knew we couldn’t finish that so I only got one.
This was a great choice because it wasn’t as heavy. I love the caramel popcorn with it. There was a good balance of the crust, bananas and cream on top. It was a nice end to our meal and I really enjoyed this.
If you haven’t tried this place, I recommend you do. They’re open from 7am til late and they have a breakfast menu too and bottomless coffee. I do know they get quite busy since it’s a popular place but it’s worth going to. I think the prices are reasonably and the service is excellent.
I hope you like my food posts here on my blog. I’m not a food expert but I am a foodie that likes to share the places I’ve tried.
