The Flying Fig Deli

History suggests food businesses that do well are those with original ideas and ones that fill a gap in the market. Paul Serafin, former owner of Stax, decided to open a Jewish Deli after a stint in New York. Using traditional cooking techniques inspired by his travels, house made items such as pickles, pastrami and cured salmon feature on the menu. Customers can choose from a selection of breakfast dishes, bagels, sandwiches and salads. There’s also a range of hot and cold beverages to choose from to help wash it all down.

For lunch, I had the Pastrami Burger which came out 15 minutes after ordering. It wasn’t the prettiest burger I’ve ever seen but boy did it taste good! Their signature New York style pastrami was juicy and succulent with lovely smokey flavours. Undoubtedly the best pastrami I’ve ever eaten. It sat on top of a brisket patty that was just as succulent. The lettuce was fresh and crisp, and the pickles added a lovely sourness to the dish. All the elements were brought together by a Russian dressing which had an exciting kick to it. The burger was accompanied by perfectly cooked fries; nice and crunchy on the outside with just the right amount of salt added.

The Flying Fig Deli has so much for going for it; the friendly and attentive service, the great food, and the cosy atmosphere. The average cost of a dish here is around $15 which is fairly reasonable. Today, I was most impressed by their pastrami. If you’re going to come here for one thing, it should be this.

The Flying Fig Deli is open Tuesday to Sunday from 7:30am-3:30pm.

WHERE: 161 Jeffcott St, North Adelaide
