On a VERY rainy night, I happened across this establishment, and was pleased to find that they made deli sandwiches, and did not skimp on the meat! I can't understand how a Subway sandwich shop or even a Blimpie's stays in business when you can get sandwich made, on quality rolls with fresh ingredients ( who needs olives anyway?) from a modest corner store like this. The suburban folk would call this a "bodega", but any "in country" urban corner convenience store has to weather that bias categorization. I was born and raised in innercity Philly, and I used to live in these Brooklyn parts a decade ago, so I guess that makes me braver than the average out of stater (Jerseyan) that find themselves in the area, roaming around, longing for some sustenance. This is not the classic urban war zone, but it's far from the Land of Oz either.

Their food menu has more extensive, but it was around 10pm on a Sunday night and only one person was working the entire counter. Still, it beat the heck out of settling for McDonalds or some deep fried concoction. If you are ever in the vicinity of Clarendon and Brooklyn Ave and are ravenous, this is your salvation.
