If you miss Mensch Jewish Delicatessen’s sandwiches, you’ll have two opportunities in upcoming weeks to gobble them down again.
Israeli-born chef Nitzan Cohen closed his deli’s Broadway location by the end of 2017 but has since returned to its roots of holding pop-up events.
Two pop-ups will be held, starting at 6 p.m., on Saturday (November 30) and December 14 at Kafka’s Coffee (577 Great Northern Way at the Emily Carr University of Art and Design), where Cohen is the chef.
Cohen will be serving his slow-brined, smoked, and handcut New York–style hot pastrami sandwiches on fresh rye bread with mustard and homemade pickles on the side.
Also on offer will be beet-cured lox, served with housemade labneh cheese on poppyseed bagel.
Brassneck Brewery beer and soda will be available to wash it all down.
And if you can’t make these dates, stay tuned because there’ll be more in store in 2020.
