New York Deli [Almond Chicken Salad]
Finally! We finally got around to visiting the New York Deli over on Casaloma Drive. We have been here once for drinks, but today we needed to find a bite to eat before donating blood over at FVTC, so we opted to hit up New York Deli. Not only that, but I decided to get something I never usually order: chicken salad. In this instance, it was an Almond Chicken Salad Deli Sandwich.
Chicken, Celery, Almonds, Mayo, & Craisins
This particular sandwich was every bit as dreamy as it looks in the photos. The almond chicken salad (chicken, celery, almonds, mayo, and craisins) was inserted between two ever-so-lightly toasted pieces of sourdough bread along with romaine lettuce, tomato, sprouts, and deli mustard. Sides consisted of a pickle spear and a fresh strawberry. I tend to think of chicken salad sandwiches as something I can easily make at home, so I don’t normally consider them when out and about. However, I’m very happy that I gave it a shot.
The chicken salad was creamy and rich, with the almonds offering texture more than taste. The chicken was cubed rather than shredded, which gave the chicken salad a more robust feel. It hardly soaked into the bread at all, which was a huge plus. The celery and craisins rounded out the mixture and added little bursts of flavor and additional texture to the sandwich. The bread was a decent sourdough that was just a little crispy. As mentioned, tomato, lettuce, and sprouts rounded out the sandwich. I really didn’t taste the mustard until the end, but once the flavor hit it was a pretty typical deli offering. The pickle was nice and crisp and the strawberry was fresh and made for a nice little desert.
Overall, it was a great little sandwich and I look forward to coming back and trying out some more of what the New York Deli has to offer. The price out the door was just a bit over $7.00.
